This week in racing game news:
“WRC 10” for the Nintendo Switch is out in Europe and coming to North America on March 29
“WRC 10” has been available on PC, Xbox and Playstation since late last year, and we’ve been fans of it since release, but it’s been unavailable for Nintendo’s console until now. As of today, the awesome rally racer is out for the Nintendo Switch in Europe, and it’s coming to North American Switches as well in just a few weeks on March 29. The Switch version of the game offers all the high-speed goodness you’d expect from the WRC series, but with the benefit of being handheld. Be aware though, the various available Switch controllers don’t have analog triggers, which some players prefer for racing games. However, if you ask us, the trade-off is probably worth it to be able to race on the go. If you’re interested in picking the game up for yourself, you can do that right here.
