Gosh, remote control cars have come a long way since I had a Scalextric set back in the 1970s. Robotics and AI company Anki has announced Anki OVERDRIVE: Fast & Furious Edition for its robotic toy car system.
Due to launch in September 2017, Anki OVERDRIVE: Fast & Furious Edition will be available for pre-order starting May 16 at Anki.com and will hit store shelves in September 2017.
It features two new highly detailed robotic Supercars based on the high-octane vehicles in the films: Dom’s Ice Charger and Hobbs’ MXT.
Each Supercar is armed with unique weapons, upgrades, sound effects, and controls. Within the game, players will battle alongside and against mainstay characters from the films including Dom, Hobbs, Letty, and Tej.
Epic movie moments will come to life as players battle the Toretto crew, or race against friends and family members. Anki OVERDRIVE: Fast & Furious Edition also includes an all-new, exclusive Fast & Furious track piece.
Anki OVERDRIVE: Fast & Furious Edition will retail for £169.99 at launch, and will be compatible with the Anki OVERDRIVE product ecosystem including Anki OVERDRIVE cars and tracks.
The game will also require a separate, free-to-download Anki OVERDRIVE: Fast & Furious Edition app, and compatible device.
