Daily news (August 20th, Round 3): Inertial Drift / Prinny 1•2: Exploded and Reloaded

Today’s Daily news: game modes revealed for Inertial Drift, but also…

  • Prinny 1•2: Exploded and Reloaded

Inertial Drift

PQube have revealed the animated intro for Inertial Drift:

They have also shared some more details about the game, this time detailing the various game modes:

  • Practice

Practice makes… you know the rest. This mode keeps things simple – just you, your car and the road. It’s the perfect way to get used to the handling of a brand new car for the first time, without having to compete for track-space with rivals.

  • Ghost Battle

Like practise mode, this is another great place to hone your craft, only this time you’ll be racing against the ghosts of other players. Unlike in a full 1v1 race, Ghost Battles allow you a valuable insight into the way your opponents approach a track. Keep an eye out for their glowing skid-trails to help you study their lines and knock valuable seconds off your lap times.

  • Time Attack

Those who have already checked out the Inertial Drift: Sunset Prologue will be more than familiar with this mode. The objective is simple – record the fastest lap. Achieving it will be another matter…

  • Race

Intense, head-to-head racing in some of the most exciting cars you’ll ever get behind the wheel of. All cars are fitted with the Phase Shift Impact Prevention System, so all you and your opponent need to do is focus on your lines. But don’t make the mistake of thinking there won’t be any crashes – the 20 tracks will demand total concentration and no shortage of skill to navigate safely.

  • Duel

As well as a traditional race, you can also take on drivers in Duel mode. Score points by putting distance between yourself and an opponent – and the first driver to fill up their bar wins! The race lead can swing frequently from one driver to another in Inertial Drift, so every second you can stay ahead is vital.

  • Endurance

In this mode you’ll race solo, attempting to reach each checkpoint before the timer runs out. Sure, the first lap might be easy enough – but how long will you be able to keep it up?

  • Style

Every drifter knows that it’s not always about speed. This mode rewards those who are willing to take a risk in the pursuit of style. Race on the very limits of the track and earn points for nose skims, dirt drops and more. You can chain up moves for a greater reward, but be warned: you will be penalized for crashing.

Here’s a few more screenshots for the game:
