[Wii U]FAST Racing Neo

Postby Yrch » Fri Nov 13, 2015 8:10 am

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.

And 18 Minutes gameplay:

I will post impressions once its out on Wii U but i already love the music.
It's so freaking generic upbeat arcady <3


FUNFACT:
- 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.

It looks really nice to play indeed :)

(did not know the Wii U could have good graphics like these ?)
Because I'm even more boring than Broscar -> Rules of the GRIP forum

Here dreaming to be alive when they abandon consoles and just start to make games only for PC so I can wait and get everything on Steam sales :)

Looks nice.
But I don't have a WiiU and I'm kinda done with consoles :(
Might convince a friend with a WiiU to get it so we can race.

I have a WiiU but I'm not sure if I'll pick this up. I'll think about it, it depends on the price/whether I can be bothered.

Look at the road-holding on these babies. Clarkson would cream himself. :ugeek:

Broscar, your car skin is called Tropical. ; )

I have been itching for a good hovercraft racers. I beat most of my favorites several times over and this looks really good.
I didn't even know what was in the splatter pack before I bought it.

Love the look of this, though the gameplay isn't my cup-o-tea

Very nice game IMO, finally something nice (besides the Mario franchise) on this seemingly abandoned platform. First game I bought for WiiU since a very long, long time :) Shame, bcause I think this console is very underappreciated by devs and general public.

The only thing that unnerves me sometimes is phase change mechanism, still - considering the fact that it is based on F-zero - it's very nice game. Shame that my WiiU controller lasts only for 4h approx :D

Agreed, apart from Mario these days this is the only reason I play the Wiiu.
