Nintendo fans will need to come to terms with this — we might never receive a brand new Wave Race game. Regardless of the jet ski classics making several Virtual Console appearances (and a precarious signature filing in Europe), there just hasn’t really been some news of a brand new variant since 2001’s Wave Race: Blue Storm for GameCube. And although it isn’t the canon release series fans are looking for, programmer Zordix’s Aqua Moto Racing Utopia could possibly be the next best thing.
Originally released two decades back for both PC and PlayStation 4, Zordix is teaming up with writer Bigben Interactive to bring the game for Nintendo Switch. Better still, the game isn’t too far off from launch — gamers will have the ability to get their hands on the Nintendo Switch version of Aqua Moto Racing Utopia sometime in February.
The select few who’ve kept their attention on the progression of Aqua Moto Racing Utopia will note that this isn’t the very first time Zordix has guaranteed that a Nintendo launch of the game. The jet ski name was initially revealed for the Wii U and hinted at for the New Nintendo 3DS. But, both variants of the game seemed to be on hiatus as equally systems obtained overshadowed from the Switch’s prevalence.
About the game itself, Aqua Moto Racing Utopia offers a normally robust choice of game styles — seven in total. Contained in such manners include championships, single-player, four player split-screen, and internet gameplay. Along with that, the game proves roughly 45 different kinds of jet skis — that I assume is each single time of jet ski which in fact exists.
As mentioned above, Aqua Moto Racing Utopia is accessible now for PC and PlayStation 4; the game will soon come to Nintendo Switch sometime in February 2018. Check out the brand new reveal trailer below:
