Disney Speedstorm interview Gameloft

Another game is joining the lineup of kart racers on Switch with Disney Speedstorm, which launches this summer. To learn more about it, we caught up with Gameloft Barcelona game manager Aska Suzuki.

During our chat, we spoke about topics such as how the project came to be in the first place, what to expect with support after launch, and more. You can read our full discussion below.

Disney Speedstorm Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Disney Speedstorm will be appearing on Switch later this summer, but as a kart racer, it has fierce competition on the console as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has proven to be a juggernaut. That being said, the team at Gameloft believes there are enough differences between the games to make the Disney and Pixar racer stand out.

Gameloft Barcelona game manager Aska Suzuki spoke to us about a few aspects such as how there are four character classes in the game and everyone on the roster has specific power-ups. Of course, simply having Disney and Pixar representation is a straightforward but appealing aspect. Updates and season passes are also planned, so players can look forward to additional content to follow after launch with new racers and more.
