Following the sub-par release of Fast & Furious Crossroads last year, it seems like developers are going on for a second shot at adapting the Fast & Furious multimedia franchise into a video game. This time they are basing their attempts not on the film but the ongoing 2019 Netflix animated franchise Fast & Furious: Spy Racers. Published but Outright Games and developed by 3D Clouds, Fast & Furious: Spy Racers Rise of Sh1ft3r is now available to purchase on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the Windows PC – with a commitment to releasing PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S native versions at a later date. As one might expect, this is a more family-friendly entry in the series, receiving a G-rating from the Australian Classifications Board.
Inspired by the Universal Pictures and DreamWorks Animation series Fast & Furious: Spy Racers, notorious criminal gang SH1FT3R is back in the game and it’s up to the Spy Racers to stop them from winning a spectacular vehicle that will cause chaos in the wrong hands. Players go undercover and sit in the drivers seat as Tony Toretto, Echo, Cisco, Layla Gray, or even the notorious SH1FT3R gang including Shashi Dar, Moray, Rafaela Moreno, and more. Players can race solo, or with friends and family via split-screen couch co-op, as well as multiplayer for up to four players on Nintendo Switch and six players on all other platforms.
The global racing tournament will feature tracks in five locations including Rio de Janeiro and the Sahara Desert. Players can use high-tech spy gear to gain the upper hand in the game’s story mode and spy weapons to speed through secret shortcuts. Additionally, voice talent from the series including Tyler Posey (Tony Toretto), Charlet Chung (Echo), Jorge Diaz (Cisco Renaldo), Camille Ramsey (Layla Gray) and Luke Youngblood (Frostee Benson) reprise their roles in the game.
