Indie developer VooFoo Studios has confirmed the release date for its upcoming Nintendo Switch port of Mantis Burn Racing: the top-down racer will be available to download for £14.99 on the Nintendo eShop on November 23rd.
The Switch version of Mantis Burn Racing is being billed as the definitive version of the game, featuring all previously released DLC in one package, a solid 60fps frame rate, local multiplayer and cross-play support for online races.
“The response to the Switch version has been incredibly positive,” said Sean Walsh, Marketing & PR Manager at VooFoo Studios. “We’ve been really encouraged by the feedback and level of excitement around the game, we can’t wait to bring credible top-down racing back to a new generation of Nintendo Switch players.”
We recently went hands-on with the Switch version of Mantis Burn Racing and found it to be potentially the best version of the game yet, as the top-down racing perfectly suits the portable platform.
