RISE: Race the Future (VD-Dev) announced for Wii U, 3DS, NX

VD-Dev is the small but talented team behind IronFall Invasion: a technological ambitious third-person shooter for the Nintendo 3DS, which was released last year worldwide. And today, the developers announced a new brand game, which is going to be multiplatform.

RiseThe game is called Rise: Race the Future, and it will be released on Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, and even the mysterious NX platform (which doesn’t imply VD-Dev knows anything about it, or even have a devkit, just that they plan on bringing the game to that platform down the line).

As the title implies, Rise: Race the Future is a (futuristic) racing game, which will feature car design by professional automotive designer, Anthony Jannarelly (who designed the exclusive supercars of W Motors, and co-funded Jannarelly Automotive). The developers promise “unprecedented racing experience through next-gen racing cars powered by air lifting technology”, but also an “epic story” set in a near future.

Unfortunately, that’s pretty much all we know about the game right now… While we wait for actual footage and screenshots, along with additional details, you can check out the announcement trailer for Rise: Race the Future:

Rise: Race the Future will be released on Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, and the NX platform. VD-Dev is planning to launch the game in Winter 2016, but obviously, this release window doesn’t apply to the NX version (which will most likely not even be available at launch, in March).
