Gameloft is bringing Asphalt 9: Legends to Switch, the company announced today. A release is planned for this summer.


Here’s some additional information, 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.

Every 4 players splitscreen game for NSW is well received.

Gameloft Barcelona should also port Xtreme, it was a great Motorstorm clone with the Asphalt twist.

I hope they do the freemium removal right this time, Modern Combat 5 could have been better.

asphalt 9 is awful. absolutely awful, especially as a handheld game.

Asphalt 8 was way better and has so much content by now, that would have been the better choice for a port.

Asphalt 9 is so dumbed down and boring compared to 8

No info about when it's gonna be released neither it's pricing neither what's included in the game.
Its real arcade racing, you can boost, you can destroy other cars (maybe too easily from the looks of it) this might scratch my burnout itch. Destructible environments look like icing on the cake. Definitely keeping an eye on this one.

I’m wary of anything that came off Mobile, but that actually looks fun. Really liked that there seems to be some way of triggering mass destruction too.

I love the Asphalt games (Even the DS ones). They got better in quality with each release. Now I'd say they are at Criterion-level.

And there are never enough new arcade racers.

Playing the iPhone version. You cannot steer the car only drift,boost,360 and choose its path. It’s like an endless runner.

Wonder if the switch version is the same or an actual racer ?
