There are a lot of games coming out in October, and one that's in danger of flying way under the radar is Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged. This arcade racing sequel looks like a big improvement on the original, which was already a good time, so we're excited to see how it handles next month.
This new gameplay trailer at least gives us an idea of what to expect. Essentially, you're getting the same drift-happy, physics-driven, toy car racing fun, only with added layers like side-shunting and jumps. The video focuses on the title's various modes, which include new modes Elimination, Drift Master, Waypoint, Clash Derby, and Grab the Gears, in which you must collect gears and bank them to net points. Returning modes include a big single player story mode and a track builder.
It all looks like simple good fun, doesn't it? Here's hoping it delivers, and that it isn't too swamped in the October scramble. Are you excited for Hot Wheels Unleashed 2? Crash into the comments section below.
