Atari and developer Headless Chicken Games’ isometric multiplayer racing game NeoSprint crosses the release date finish line on Switch today. NeoSprint, the first new Sprint Series game in three decades, features multiple game modes, up to 8-player local multiplayer, upgradable cars, a custom race track builder, online leaderboards, and the timeless fun of arcade-era single-screen racing.

Atari’s single-screen Sprint Series brought multiplayer racing to arcades in the 1970s, complete with steering wheels, gas and brake pedals, and gear shifts. The gem of the series was Sprint 8, which allowed 8 friends to compete in frenzied single-screen action.

NeoSprint is an all-new, modern entry in the Sprint Series that brings the spirit of arcade racing to Switch. Race across colorful, minimalist 3D isometric landscapes, upgrade and customize your cars, build, share, and download custom tracks, and compete in 8-player local multiplayer or best the track times of the best drivers in the world.

NeoSprint Key Features Include:

Isometric Arcade Action: Precise controls with an arcade feel make NeoSprint gameplay easy to pick up but hard to master. Learn the intricacies of drifting and drafting to pull ahead and learn how to stick the landing when you go over two and three-story jumps.

Easy-to-Use Grid-Based Track Builder: Design twisting and turning tracks, build ramps, jumps, banks, and more, and add a variety of scenery and decorations to make your track unique. Four different biomes — forest, desert, winter, and city — bring a completely different look.

Sharing and Leaderboards: Share the tracks and circuits you create with other drivers. Download player-created tracks and then race against the times of the best NeoSprint drivers in the world. Share your tracks – and try others.

A Lineup Built for Speed: Choose from a garage of 9 different cars, from muscle to sports cars, each with unique speed, acceleration, and handling. Each car is customizable with different colors and Atari-themed decals. Customize your lineup and get racing!

Campaign Mode: For those playing solo, challenge 8 skilled AI drivers in NeoSprint’s campaign mode. Compete in multiple Cup Series with increasingly difficult tracks. As you progress, unlock new decorations and car liveries.

Alternate Game Modes: Grand Prix mode allows you to build bespoke circuits from your own tracks or tracks downloaded by the community. Additionally, Obstacle Courses and Time Trials provide hours of racing fun after completing the Campaign.
