Gear.Club Unlimited is a mobile port to the Nintendo Switch that looks surprisingly positive. Here’s what you’ll get to drive.
You wouldn’t go as far as saying the Nintendo Switch doesn’t have any great racing games – there’s anti-gravity fun with Fast RMX and of course, the mighty Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – but it doesn’t really have a serious racer to call its own.
Xbox has the belting Forza series, while PS4 has a new Gran Turismo on the way. Meanwhile Project Cars and its sequel are the multi-platform standard bearer, but you’ll not see that on the Nintendo Switch.
The best the Switch has to offer, then, could be the upcoming Gear.Club Unlimited. Yes, it’s a mobile port, but it’s a surprisingly high-end affair, and will come with a wealth of licensed (and very pretty) real-world cars.

Gear.Club Unlimited launches on Nintendo Switch on December 1st, 2017. It’s rated E for Everyone/PEGI-3, in spite of something called a ‘Scat Pack’ attached to a Dodge Challenger is.
We don’t know what one of those is, but we’re pretty sure we don’t want to find out.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
