Real Racing 3 trailer escapes EA Summer Showcase
Here’s a game you will play on your phone which looks almost as fancy as any on your HD TV, even in pre-alpha state: Real Racing 3, the first title to emerge from the newly rebranded Firemonkeys.
The Real Racing series was Firemint’s baby, but now the developer has merged with Iron Monkeys to form what may be the best-named mobile studio in the world, and this si the result.
As the name suggests, authenticity is the watch word. It features licensed cars from the likes of Porsche, Dodge and Audi, and real-world tracks including Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Silverstone. Each race boasts a 22 car grid – quite a feat for a mobile racer.
Real Racing 3 is slated for 2012 release, presumably on Android and iDevice.
