Racing series Cruis’n arrives on Nintendo Switch this fall

Cruis’n Blast, the latest entry in the long-running Cruis’n franchise of arcade racing games, is coming to Nintendo Switch this fall, Nintendo announced Tuesday during its E3 2021 Nintendo Direct presentation.

Arcade publisher Raw Thrills — a company co-founded by Eugene Jarvis, the original designer of the Cruis’n series under Midway Games back in the 1990s — released Cruis’n Blast in arcades in January 2017. It was the first Cruis’n title since 2007’s Wii game Cruis’n. The Switch title appears to be a port of that game, and it will be a console exclusive for Nintendo, meaning that it could also be released on PC.

Cruis’n Blast features 23 vehicles — ranging from sports cars to tanks and even a unicorn — and nearly 30 tracks across five locations: London; Madagascar; Rio de Janeiro; Death Valley, California; and Singapore. Up to four people can race together in the game. You can see a few of the tracks in action in the attract mode video for Cruis’n Blast:
