Gear.Club details released for Switch, including launch date, roster and more

The first realistic driving game for the Nintendo Switch is also looking pretty nice. Check out the latest details and trailer after the jump.

Taking it to the streets

Gear.Club Unlimited might not look as amazing as some driving games do, but it does seem shockingly solid. The Nintendo Switch, after all, doesn’t have the horsepower of a console like the PS4. So honestly, stuff that’s super-realistic in tone just isn’t going to look as great on it, as it might on another platform.

But that’s not to say that Gear.Club Unlimited looks bad at all, because it doesn’t. On the contrary, it’s actually shaping up to be pretty darn decent in the graphics department- especially in handheld mode. I have a feeling that’s really where this one will be a draw.

Aside from the graphics too, GCU will offer racing gamers some pretty nice options. Customization will be a big part of things, and the series of real cars that’ll be included are equally as touted. Case in point, today’s reveal of the first 16 cars.

They are:

MAKER MODEL
AC 378 GT Z
Alfa Romeo 4C
Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione
Bugatti Veyron GrandSport
Chevrolet Camaro 1LS
Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
Dodge Challenger RT/Scat Pack
Jaguar F-Type R AWD
Mercedes-AMG C63 S
Mercedes-AMG GT S
Mercedes-AMG SLS Black Series
Nissan 370Z
Nissan GTR
Pagani Huayra Roadster
Ruf RT12 R
Ruf CTR 3

Additional cars will be unlockable in the game as you play. You’ll also be able to open up new customization options and new races. So it sounds like there’ll be plenty of reasons to stick with this one, should you pick it up.

Also revealed today, is that Gear.Club Unlimited will sport “400 races” across a trio of modes. Those will be:

  • Derby mode: where players will challenge up to 7 other drivers.
  • Rally mode: 4 drivers will compete on off-road tracks where drift will be essential to win the race.
  • Time trial mode: where it will be necessary to achieve the best time.

Pretty standard stuff from the sound of it. Not unwelcome, but typical for a racer.

As to when you’ll be able to dig in and play Gear.Club Unlimited, that’ll be December the 1st.
