Riptide GP: Renegade is making a splash on Nintendo Switch this month

Martin Bigg On December 1, 2017

There was a time when your choice of racing games on the Nintendo Switch was limited to the magnificent Mario Kart 8: Deluxe and the futuristic F-Zero-inspired FAST RMX. Over the past few weeks, however, we've seen a spate of new racing game releases ported to Nintendo's hybrid console, including Rocket League, Mantis Burn Racing and MXGP 3. There's still more to come too, as  Vector Unit has announced that its acclaimed water racer Riptide GP: Renegade will be making a splash on Nintendo Switch on December 7th. Available worldwide on the Nintendo eShop, it will be sold for $9.99 (£7.40). 

Harking back to retro water racers like Jet Moto and Hydro Thunder,  Riptide GP: Renegade features fun fast-paced racing with realistic dynamic water physics and splash effects. During races, you can also perform various stunts using the analogue sticks. 



For the Nintendo Switch version, players will be able to compete in cross-platform eight-player online races against both Switch and Steam players. Riptide GP: Renegade also supports local split-screen multiplayer against four players which has been optimised for Nintendo Switch. In addition,  Riptide GP: Renegade features a deep career mode and vehicle customisation.
