Vector Unit has announced Beach Buggy Racing 2, a sequel to the original title released on Switch last September. It’s initially targeted for early summer on mobile, with a premium version following on consoles later in 2018. Platforms have not yet been identified, but this one should end up on Switch.
Beach Buggy Racing 2 features new content, upgradeable powerups, plus online competitions and tournaments for the first time. We have some additional details and gameplay videos below.
With over 50 powerups to discover and upgrade, Beach Buggy Racing 2 adds a layer of strategic depth to the classic kart racing formula. Players collect abilities like “Chain Lightning”, “Donut Tires” and “Killer Bees”; customize strategic load-outs of powerups, cars and characters; and then test their skills and abilities online against other players from around the world.
Competitions range from daily races and special events, to weekly tournaments powered by Amazon GameOn, in which players compete against each other on leaderboards to win prizes.
