Meet Aquiris Game Studio at Gamescom 2018 and be one of the first in playing Horizon Chase Turbo on Nintendo Switch.
XBOX One and Nintendo Switch versions will be coming later this year!
Porto Alegre – August 9, 2018 – Aquiris Game Studio wants to invite you to check out the Nintendo Switch version of Horizon Chase Turbo at Gamescom 2018 and test its specific features and exclusive game modes. Additionally, our Technical Art Director and co-founder Amilton Diesel will be available for interviews. We believe the game is a perfect fit for the Switch, with short and intense gameplay sessions, vivid graphics and 2-4 local multiplayer with online functions. We also don’t forget that the Nintendo audience is home to some of the classics that inspired our game, as the Rad Racer, Top Gear, Lotus and the Rush series.
Aquiris Game Studio will be available for meetings at RESTAURANT AMPÈRE (placed between Halls 4.2 and 5.2) during the days 21-23rd of August.
Horizon Chase Turbo is a homage to classic 16-bit racers that defined a generation of high-speed, frenetic arcade fun. The game ignites an instant blast of nostalgia with catchy contemporary chiptune music, split screen multiplayer and retro design with modern gameplay. Our composer and sound designer for the series is the Scottish Barry Leitch, who also created the soundtracks for the Top Gear, Lotus and Rush series of racing games.
The game main features include a deep and extensive single-player world tour campaign, intense tournaments, endurance challenges and more than 31 vehicles across 109 tracks, spanning real-world locations, such as China, Japan, Hawaii and more.
“We created Horizon Chase Turbo to be the racing game we wanted to play, hitting the sweet spot between true-to-life simulators and chaotic, explosive kart racers,” said Aquiris Studio Game Designer, Felipe Dal Molin. “With Horizon Chase Turbo, we want players to feel the nostalgic tension of the simple tug-of-war of a tight turn; where players are run off-road for a split second only to return to intense high-speed action as they overtake and battle against friends playing together on the couch or via the online ghost mode.”
Aside from the modernly retro graphics, the split-screen couch multiplayer modes are among Turbo’s most defining features. All game modes, including the World Tour campaign, tournament and endurance challenges support local split screen multiplayer up to four players. Racers can compete in head-to-head races one at a time, or spend hours racing around the globe collecting coins to achieve the common goal of unlocking exotic vehicles and spinetingling tracks.
