80’s Overdrive on the way to Switch

Posted on March 31, 2020 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop

Some folks may remember 80’s Overdrive, a 2D pixel art racer that dropped on the 3DS eShop at the end of 2017. Switch was still fresh and the older portable was on its way out, so it may not have received the attention it should have. Insane Code is rectifying that by porting the game over to Nintendo’s latest console.

It’s unclear when exactly we’ll be seeing 80’s Overdrive on Switch, but it’s on track to arrive later in 2020. We have some details and a trailer from the original 3DS release below.

80’S OVERDRIVE is a 2D pixel art racing game, designed to take you back in time to when 8 and 16 bit consoles and arcade games ruled the world. Compete against opponents in career mode to unlock new races, buy new cars, and upgrade them with state-of-the-art technologies! Try your skill in time attack mode and see how far you can get in this race against the clock! Create your own tracks with built-in track generator and easily share them with your friends!
