Asphalt 9: Legends, which was announced for Switch earlier this summer, has received a release date. A listing on the store indicates that Gameloft will be releasing the racer on October 9.
Here’s an overview of Asphalt 9: Legends, along with a trailer:
Created by Gameloft Barcelona in 2018, Asphalt 9: Legends quickly became the critically acclaimed and multi-awarded reference of mobile arcade racing games. In this Nintendo Switch version, players will find the same fun, arcade racing experience where they can perfect their skills, prove their worth, and become legends by cruising across awe-inspiring tracks set around the world. They will collect and unlock world famous licensed hypercars and stunning tracks by racing through the robust single player campaign. Asphalt 9: Legends launches with nearly 60 super and hyper cars including some of the fastest, rarest, and most prestigious cars ever made, such as the Bugatti Chiron, the McLaren P1 and the Lamborghini Terzo Millennio, exclusive to Asphalt 9: Legends.
Asphalt 9: Legends supports up to 8 players in online play free-for-all and up to four player local split screen. Split screen functionality allows players to race on one of the 42 tracks available, with up to three local opponents with the new offline gameplay mode.
As a reminder, Asphalt 9: Legends will support the Joy-Con, Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, gyroscopic motion controls, and touch screen controls. There will also be support for Touchdrive, “a fresh approach to driving controls that adds a layer of strategic decision to the sheer fun of the ride.”
Asphalt 9: Legends will be released as a free-to-play game, and will not require a Nintendo Switch Online subscription. It will take up 1.6GB of space.
