Here’s the first full trailer for Gear.Club Unlimited, the upcoming Nintendo Switch racing game from Eden Games.
It’s fair to say that the Nintendo Switch is not wanting for games right now. With at least one big release hitting retail every month, plus a wealth of indie treasures already available on the eShop – and in the pipeline – most Switch owners should be pretty satisfied.
What the Switch lacks, however, are games that compare with some of the big first-party exclusives on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It might have Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, but where is its Forza or Gran Turismo?
Step forward Eden Games with Gear.Club Unlimited.
The game promises to bring authentic car racing to the Switch, with a roster of officially-licensed super cars. The game’s debut Switch trailer gives a sneak peek of what’s in store, and Eden Games have a released a list of the first 16 super cars that will make up the game’s roster.
Gear.Club Unlimited – initial car roster
- AC – 378 GT Z
- Alfa Romeo – 4C
- Alfa Romeo – 8C Competizione
- Bugatti – Veyron GrandSport
- Chevrolet – Camaro 1LS
- Chevrolet – Corvette Stingray
- Dodge – Challenger RT/Scat Pack
- Jaguar – F-Type R AWD
- Mercedes-AMG – C63 S
- Mercedes-AMG – GT S
- Mercedes-AMG – SLS Black Series
- Nissan – 370Z
- Nissan – GTR
- Pagani – Huayra Roadster
- Ruf – RT12 R
- Ruf – CTR 3
Gear.Club Unlimited includes over 400 races, spread across three distinct modes: 1v7 Derby, four driver Rally, and a time trial mode. As seen in the trailer, the game also includes a wealth of vehicle customisation options.
The game certainly looks promising, but there is one big consideration… it’s a mobile port. This shouldn’t necessarily be a mark against the game, but it will be interesting to see how Gear.Club Unlimited feels when shorn of its in-app purchases, and how it plays using a traditional controller.
There’s definitely a space on the Switch for a more seriously minded racing game, so although it’s unlikely to best Forza Motorsport 7 we have our fingers crossed.
Gear.Club Unlimited will be available on December 1st for the Nintendo Switch, and is available now on Google Play and the Apple App Store.
