Video game 'F1 Race Stars: Powered Up Edition' for Wii U.
Video game developer Codemasters is working on a Wii U exclusive version of its arcade-style racing game F1 Race Stars. Launching in December, F1 Race Stars: Powered Up Edition will be available exclusively from the Nintendo eShop and boasts expanded content and features to take advantage of Wii U hardware.
For the first time on a Nintendo platform, a cast of Formula One stars including Jensen Button, Fernando Alonso, and Sebastian Vettel have become personality-packed, cartoon heroes sprinting for the checkered flag in cars representing each team on a range of super-fast, feature-packed circuits perfect for split-screen multiplayer fun.
F1 Race Stars: Powered Up Edition expands the world of F1 Race Stars with four extra tracks and nine extra accessory packs. Racing on 15 circuits around the globe, players are challenged to race through marina and dodge flying tomatoes in Europe, whip through water gardens in China, make their move through a mountain railway pass and power through a palace in India and dodge the grumpy groundhogs and motor past the mighty moose in Canada.
New content and functionality means the game will let players enjoy the unique advantages and gameplay options of Wii U. These features include racing as a player's Mii and Wii U GamePad motion and tilt controls. Players can use the GamePad as a steering wheel, display a map or let gamers choose to steam into the action on the GamePad's screen.
With instantly accessible pick-up-and-play gameplay, F1 Race Stars: Powered Up Edition will enable players of all ages and abilities to dive straight into position-swapping, wheel-to-wheel competition. With up to 4-players competing in split-screen multiplayer, head-to-head or coming together in teams, F1 Race Stars: Powered Up Edition is designed for fun with friends and family.
Coming this December and available exclusively from the Nintendo eShop, F1 Race Stars: Powered Up Edition for Wii U is developed by Codemasters.
