First announced during the Nintendo Direct presentation at E3 2021, Cruis’n Blast is the latest entry in the Cruis’n series. First released on Arcade a few years ago, it’s now headed to Nintendo Switch on September 14th in Europe and North America. Quite interestingly, Nintendo are not involved in this release at all (beyond the licencing of the Cruis’n IP to Raw Thrills): it’s GameMill Entertainment that will publish the game.
The game will feature no less than 29 tracks, and 6 tours. Players can expect typical 90’s arcade racer fare with various locations around the world. Naturally, those are filled with elements to spice things up like alien invasions, dinosaurs, police chases, and more.
Here’s the latest trailer for the game, showcasing some of the tracks you will get to race along in Cruis’n Blast:
