The upcoming sequel to Hot Wheels Unleashed has a lot more than just new cars and places to play, including a few new airborne ways to win.
You will believe a car can fly in Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged. Well, maybe not fly, can’t really say that. Maybe more like… jump? Yes indeed, things are going to get a little more airborne on those famed orange tracks in the sequel to Mattel and Milestone’s Hot Wheels Unleashed.
The latest look at the fall release showcases as much, with jumping and double-jumping becoming part of players’ arsenals as they speed to victory. And not just allowing them to skip past other cars, the boost-powered jump mechanic will also allow access to hidden routes. Some pretty cool possibilities there. But that’s not all either, as you’ll also be able to get a little rough with your tiny, metal competition.
Along with the aerial moves, Hot Wheels fans will also have Lateral Dashes to put into play. Those are exactly what they sound like, and will give players the ability to move side-to-side, smashing cars into barriers or right off the tracks completely.
Here’s a full look, including new cars, details on the customization that’ll be possible, and loads more:
Leaving your opponents in the dust means you’ll need more than a fast car in Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged. Two new vehicular maneuvers bring an extra layer of action to each race. With the power of boost, players will be able to Jump or Double Jump at any moment. With a boosted hop, racers can fly over their enemies, avoid obstacles, and navigate tight spaces. Racers who flex their creative muscles can even use this trick to find new shortcuts or reach new sections of the track.Mattel press release
