If you’re like me and you’ve been pining for another Wipeout game, or you’ve simply been hoping that there would be more games worth buying on the Wii U outside of the few major releases, then I have some good news.
Xenoblade Chronicles X isn’t the only thing this month that might catch your fancy. Fast Racing Neo’s coming out next week, and it absolutely demands your attention.
Now if you’re one of those people who have scoffed at the Wipeout series and been hankering for a follow up to F-Zero GX, I’m sorry. You’re not getting one. If you were it would have happened already. Probably.
What we do have, however, is a very pretty, very fast racer running at 60fps that should be a nice complement to anyone’s Wii U library. Here’s a trailer to remind you of why you should care:
Nintendo’s confirmed with me that Fast Racing Neo will become available on the eShop for $22.49 (NZ$24.49 for our New Zealand cousins) on December 11. That’s not a bad time to launch, with North America getting access to Devil’s Third around the same time and everyone having about a week or so to parse through Xenoblade Chronicles X.
It’s been a good 18 months for the Wii U. How do you feel about the state of the console?
