Anticipated racing game rolls out this November.

Project Cars

Bandai Namco and Slightly Mad Studios have entered a worldwide distribution agreement on Project Cars, the companies announced.

The PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, and PC racing game will be distributed by Bandai Namco starting this November.

The game promises the largest track roster of any recent racing game, dynamic time of day and weather systems, “world-class graphics and handling,” deep tuning and pit stop functionality, and support for the Project Morpheus and Occulus Rift virtual reality headsets.

Watch a set of trailers below.

Welcome to Project Cars

  • Locksus

    Have they shown any Wii U footage at all?

    It would be interesting to see some.

    • Jay

      Check out Ridge Racer on PS1.

      There you go… ;)

  • An Tran

    Oh god no.

  • Budgiecat

    Put some Namco characters in as cameo drivers:

    Jack Slate
    Rena Hayami
    Gina Cavalli
    Jin Kazama
    and these 2 guys lol

  • 罪罰

    That’s great news for the developer, game has a lot of potential.

  • DesmaX

    Man, this is a sweet looking game.

    Congrats for the devs for getting a publisher for it

    • Spicy Chicken

      Been following it for a very long time, I hate super realistic games usually, but that car roster is killing me slowly… O_o

  • Bob Obb

    Is this F2P? Bamco and F2P are a bad combo

    • ShadowFang

      No. This was never going to a F2P game.

      This is an indie game. It WAS going to be a digital release, once upon a time. But it’s grown in scope, and apparently move up to the big time. This sounds like it may have been bumped up to physical release on all platforms now. A normal release.

  • desponent

    It’s Project Car… Proooooject Caaaaar!

  • Mikail

    Publisher = retail disc = Hard Copy = i am buying this.

  • Solomon_Kano

    That has what to do with this… ?

    Namco Bandai is a huge publisher, if they gave a rat’s ass about putting out a Digimon game in the west, this certainly wouldn’t be the thing to hold it up. This. Not the One Piece, Naruto, Dragon Ball, whatever games. This game that they’re playing no part in beyond distribution.

    I want Digimon as much as the next guy, but that’s silly.

  • DriftSlave

    They apparently published Grid Autosport too, so this isn’t anything out the ordinary.

  • cosmosgaming

    Bamco’s actually been publishing a lot of racing titles that aren’t developed by them recently. I believe Grid Autosport was because they have a North American distribution agreement with Codemasters, and they’re also publishing the new Moto GP game from Milestone in North America too.
