Funselektor Labs just announced that Absolute Drift, a new top down driving title, is due to slide onto the Nintendo Switch come 3 December.
Getting off the starting grid and onto the Nintendo Switch, Absolute Drift is a seemingly simple driving title that takes the pint sized fun of micro machines and embraces the same sort of arcade adventure that made Hotshot Racing such a hoot. Stripping back the bright colours and blaring sounds that might normally accompany an arcade cabinet, Absolute Drift takes place in a minimalistic world of tight corners and brutalist architecture.
Getting in above the driving seat, players can choose from 6 distinct drift cars, each with their own look and feel, for the perfect ride. As you zoom through 34 levels across 3 Game Modes, you’ll overtake your rivals and master the art of Driftkhana, Drifting, & Mountain Driftin out on the track. In addition, Absolute Drift features 5 Free-Roaming hubs to explore: from airports and docks to a floating metropoli, all of which look clean but drive messy.
This indie race for glory is already available on Playstation 4, mobile, Xbox One, and PC, where it received very positive Steam reviews. The Switch port comes hot off the heels of Funselektor Labs recent release of art of rally, but with a very different approach to the motorised sport. Players interested in picking up Absolute Drift can plug in some Drum and Bass and pre order now over on the official Nintendo eShop. If you’re not sure this seemingly simple idea works then check out the trailer above before you grab a 20% discount ahead of the December 3 release. If you want to keep your pedal on the bake then you can still pick up Absolute Drift for €10.99 or local equivalent on launch. You can find out more about the long road ahead over on the official website now.
