Gear.Club is much more than just another racing game: it is a genuinely realistic racing experience where you take the most incredible cars through breath-taking environments.

Show your competitive spirit, on your own or with your friends, in different leagues and in frenzied races, and become a true driver by achieving the best times in the different available racing categories.

I am curious about how this will look and play once mapped to controls. Unless it's somehow a straight port with the touch and gyro controls.

The main issues i have with most mobile games is their Monetization, time gated content and lack of respect for the costumer.

I'd be happy to give some mobile games a try if they come across to Switch without these issues. I'd double dip on most Kairosoft games in a heartbeat.

I liked Puzzle Dragons on 3DS and Implosion on Switch, and there are a few others that have PC versions i like also.

A game being on mobile doesn't make it bad, it's the practices it adopts or quality of the product that does.

Anyone with the game want to share details of the f2p/iap elements. I'm assuming these will all be removed/reworked but would just like to know what ppl get access to with the free app compared to the paid Switch release.

Game looks good and reviews sound very positive.

Just watched the trailer. Shame there's no gameplay footage yet for the Switch.

Watched the game on IOS and it looks shit.

I really hope the Switch doesn't become a place for shovelware from mobile platforms....

The eshop is already starting to look a bit like it.

Outside of a few titles i can't agree with your eshop sentiment.

Hence why I said a bit.

I love the Switch, and have put a shit ton of hours in the three games I own for it, and obviously would always want more games, and even if a game doesn't interest me it doesn't hurt to have it there.

I just hope we're not going to get to a point where mobile games find a new home on the switch due to it's portability and the thought that it might be a great "fit".

I certainly wouldn't be happy if Gameloft started releasing all their games on the Switch for example.

Most mobile games are very basic in nature given the platform they're developed for, and I'm not saying mobile games are shit. There have been some absolutely great games I've played on mobile like Monument Valley, Hitman Go etc but I don't want them on the Switch.

Watching iOS gear club videos, it reminds me of real racing 1 which was a great game but not a real sim, very much like a codemasters grid game but a little more arcade-like.

This is one of my most anticipated games. I really enjoyed Test Drive Unlimited and I think Eden Games can really do something cool with this version. We'll have to see how it changes since it's not mobile now.

Holy shit I would LOVE Monument Valley and its sequel on the Switch, are you kidding me? Give me a 2-in-1 and I'll buy it immediately. Also, VOEZ might actually be my second most-played game on my Switch right now; another mobile port. Implosion also fits perfectly on the console.

Graphics look nice. Hope it plays well. Not sure if I'm gonna buy it right away though. Can't exactly see the point right now.

No Switch version screenshots have been released yet. So it can hopefully only look better, specifically the background meshes and testures....

I imagine it should look quite a bit better. I hope they promote the game like crazy, because there aren't any other games on the NS like it. They'll have this market all to themselves for a while, so I hope they can capitalize on that.

I'd take a longer Monument Valley sure but I wouldn't want the eshop to be full of short titles like that. Even though it's perhaps the greatest mobile game I've played personally.

I guess I'm being unfair with regards to Gear Club, so I'll reserve judgement. Perhaps it's going to be vastly different to the experience on mobile devices.

Looks nice, but I don't see how anything but an arcade racer could work on the Switch considering it doesn't have analogue triggers.
