    Finally! A real racing game and not a Mario Kart clone. :)

    If only publishers could also make a rally and an fps game of high quality it'd be awesome.

    I've just checked and it is available free of charge on the Android store. The game's pretty big for a smartphone game, though, it's 1.31GB large.. downloading it. :)

    Thanks for mentioning it.

    The Android version is good but not great (cars feel light, without weight or balance) so here's hoping the Switch version is a proper home console game. It sure looks like it. :)

    Do they have the licenses? Or are they just generic cars?

    Bit early to be heralding this as a Gran Turismo for Switch, all I saw was 40secs of fmv, no gameplay no in game graphics.
    If this is an android port it's gonna be toss.

    How many people would play this over something like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Fast RMX, or (If a port of sonic racing transformed) :unsure:

    Those are all arcade racing/futuristic racers. Apples and oranges.

    I'm hoping they will do a good job with this because I want a Forza/GT on the Switch.

    There's already like 2-3 Forzas on Xbox One. I'd like a similar game to that on the go.

    A free version available for Android, so this shouldn't be more than $19.99.

    There's always Fast RMX if you prefer an F-ZERO clone of sorts. Personally I prefer that and/or Mario Kart-style racers over "realistic" racers anyway.

    If only something like dirt rally would come to the switch, but I highly doubt that...

    Meh. No. Already played that on the WiiU and it's not the type of racing game I really care much.

    If I would, it would have to be an actual F-Zero or that Redout game that's coming out soon.

    Mario Kart, FAST RMX and whatever arcade racing games aren't an alternative for simulator racing games, people.
