During yesterdays Nintendo Direct a new Trailer for the upcoming "FAST Racing Neo" from Shin'en was shown:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RvI1a_LrsWQ
FAST Racing Neo is the sequel to "FAST Racing", released on Wii several years ago and will release on Dec 2015 (finally).
Im really looking forward to this game. FAST was lots of fun on Wii and this seems to take the term FAST serious this time.
What makes this game Unique is the polarity switch mechanic:
There are boost-stripes on the track in 2 colors, blue and orange and your vehicle is able to switch its polarity with a button press.
When your color matches the stripes color you get a speed boost, if not you will be slowed down, (Ikaruga anyone?) making it neccessary to memorize the tracks and plan ahead.

I will post impressions once its out on Wii U but i already love the music.
It's so freaking generic upbeat arcady <3
- Shin'en added a "Hero Mode" to the game, where your vehicle gets shield energy that it used to boost, similar to F-Zero X/GX.
- The games announcer will be voiced by Jack Merluzzi, who also voiced the announcer in F-Zero GX.
