It’s been close to two years since we originally found out about 80’s Overdrive. The game’s launch is finally approaching, as it was sent off to lot check last week.

Insane Code spoke more about 80’s Overdrive in an interview with D-pad Joy. On the topic of the racer’s different modes, Insane Code outlined them as follows:

A 2D, third-person racing game, 80’s Overdrive was originally planned to be released on the 3DS in Q1/Q2 of this year. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, the small developer team was unable to to meet those expectations. While a release date is still not confirmed, the team have since offered a status update on their progress.

A full list of details is available after the jump.

The first actual footage from 80s Overdrive has finally been shown. It may only last for just over a minute, but we’re able to really see the racer in action – snazzy music and all.

Here’s the clip:

As for when we’ll be seeing 80s Overdrive on the eShop, we sadly still have a long ways to go. The developer mentioned on Twitter that the game is targeted for Q1 / Q2 2017.

Last month, we found out about the very neat-looking 3DS game 80’s Overdrive. It was clear that the game is a racer… but that’s pretty much all we knew. To find out more, we reached out to the developer.

Just three team members are working on 80’s Overdrive: artist/designer Rafa? Kemnitz, a programmer who also handles music and sound effects, and “a part-time hardcore game tester.” Insane Code, the developer’s programmer company, will be publishing.
