Speed Crew (pit crew-inspired party game) races to Nintendo Switch this June

Update: Wild Fields have announced that Speed Crew has been delayed to June 8th due to “technical matters”. Not the worst of delay: that’s just two days than initially announced!


Looking for racing-theme party game on Nintendo Switch? If yes, Wild Fields may have just the game for you! Introducing Speed Crew, a pit crew-inspired party game. It will launch on June 6th worldwide (including in Japan, where it will offer an English language option).

Here’s the announcement trailer for the game:

In Speed Crew, you get to take part in car races not as a driver, but as a member of a pit-crew. Your task: to fix the racers’ car within the time limit! In order to rise above the inevitable chaos, you and your friends will have to come up with solid strategies. And don’t be fooled: fixing those cars isn’t as straightforward as it seems, especially with things like suddenly changing weather, moving floors, and other obstacles on your way.

Here’s some more details and some screenshots for the game:

Drivers, start your engines! Got what it takes to jump into the racing boots of an elite motorsports crew?Issuing the challenge is games developer Wild Fields, which is excited to announce that Speed Crew cruises onto Nintendo Switch on June 6, 2023. A pit crew-inspired party game, Speed Crew delivers an experience that is equal parts spontaneous chaos and effective strategy. Suiting up as a member of a racing team’s pit crew, up to four players must replace tires, repair damage, and aim to get their drivers back in the race before time is up.  

Speeding straight into the action on race day, mechanics will need to handle a range of tasks, including tire changes, refuelling, and taking a hammer to damaged surfaces. With over 40 different ways to fix cars, many of which involve multi-step processes, only the most well-oiled crews will have what it takes to reach the checkered flag. This is no leisurely Sunday drive, as they contend with dynamic environments too. Moving floors, sudden weather changes, and locking gates all grease the wheels of complexity to even the most simple seeming pit stop. There’s no way to know what repairs each car needs until they enter the pit box, so even an organised pit crew can be thrown into chaos, and split-second decision-making could be the difference between victory or defeat.

Teamwork is the main driver in order to survive the bumps in Speed Crew’s road. Offering options for both local and online cooperative play with up to four players, Speed Crew delivers a race-winning co-op experience no matter where in the world your crew is. There’s even an option to give underperforming crewmates a quick slap if inspirational words don’t do the trick! Speed Crew leans into its vibrant aesthetic byoffering an extensive range of both character and vehicle customisation options because we all know the only thing more important than nailing the perfect pit stop is doing it in style. If that wasn’t enough, the game pays homage to the legends of motorsports with distinct levels set in the 1970s, 1980s and beyond, where style was just as important as speed.

  • Control a chaotic race day pit crew and fix cars in over 48 levels
  • Replace engines, change tires, hammer out dents and much more
  • Dynamic stage hazards ensure that no two pit stops are the same
  • There’s no I in team! Communication and cooperation are crucial to victory on track
  • Become a smooth operator with a wide variety of customisation options 

Speed Crew (Switch – eShop) comes out on June 6th worldwide.
