Pre-orders for the battle racing game start 16th May, and product will be on shelves from September.
The product features two detailed robotic supercars based on the high-octane vehicles favoured by the characters in the films, Dom’s Ice Charger and Hobbs’ MXT. Each supercar is armed with weapons, upgrades, sound effects, and controls. Anki Overdrive: Fast & Furious Edition also includes a new, exclusive Fast & Furious track piece. When players drive through the Power Zone they can trigger a massive blast that disables nearby opponents.
Boris Sofman, CEO & co-founder, Anki, commented: “We’ve been searching for the right brand partnership to elevate our robotic battle-racing experience to the next level of entertainment, and what better fit than one of the most widely recognised action franchises in the world. Anki Overdrive: Fast & Furious Edition delivers the ultimate adrenaline rush to millions of Fast & Furious fans, merging the films’ cars and characters with videogame elements, physical play, and robotics.”
Anki Overdrive: Fast & Furious Edition will retail for £169.99 at launch, and will be compatible with the Anki Overdrive product ecosystem including Anki Overdrive cars and tracks. The game will require a separate, free-to-download Anki Overdrive: Fast & Furious Edition app, and compatible device.
