Atari will release the racing game NeoSprint on Switch, the company announced today. The title is on track for a Summer 2024 launch.

Developed by Headless Chicken Games, NeoSprint offers multiple game modes, custom racetracks, upgradable cars, and eight-player local multiplayer. We have more information in the following overview:

With NeoSprint, Atari returns to the single-screen racing format first made popular in the 1970s by the Sprint Series arcade machines. NeoSprint enhances the single-screen formula with contemporary features, including a rich and colorful 3D isometric presentation, upgradable cars, a track-builder, and the ability to compete against the best track times of players from across the globe.

Key Features

  • Track Builder: Create and share your dream tracks and circuits with the NeoSprint player community. Build tracks with jumps and turns up to three levels high across three different biomes. Share your best designs and get ready to compete for the fastest time.
  • Multiplayer Mayhem: Get ready for some fun, arcade-style mayhem as you race against up to eight other players. Friendships will be tested and rivalries will be born.
  • It’s a Career: Advance your career in the single-player Campaign Mode as you compete across multiple Racing Cups with increasingly difficult tracks. As you progress, unlock new decorations and car liveries.
  • Racing Your Way: Hone your driving skills with Obstacle Course and Time Trial challenges, then step up to compete in Campaign and Grand Prix modes. There is plenty of racing content for every type of player.
  • Custom Cars: Nine car types, from muscle to sports cars, all with unique speed, acceleration, and handling. Each car is customizable with colors and Atari-themed decals. Create your dream car and get racing!

Waid Rosen, Chairman and CEO of Atari, said today: “NeoSprint does an amazing job of bringing back the fun of single-screen co-op racing, while adding more modern elements of a racing sim. With its intense, co-op mayhem NeoSprint is a worthy addition to the Sprint Series lineage.”
