    They’re Micro. They’re Machines. And they’re BACK! We’re delighted to announce that legendary gaming franchise Micro Machines will be racing onto PCs and consoles this coming April! The new title, Micro Machines World Series, will be racing into stores this Spring – bringing massive amounts of miniature multiplayer mayhem to PlayStation® 4, Xbox One and Windows.

    Micro Machines World Series will retain the manic social game play of the classic series, but will bring a new dimension to the experience with stunning HD visuals – taking you to the much-loved household environments as they’ve never been seen before.

    As well as bringing to you the classic game modes like Race and Elimination, Micro Machines World Series will introduce a new style of game play to the series: Battle Mode. The all-new Battle Arenas will allow you to wreak mass destruction on a miniature scale against your friends or the AI. Meanwhile, Team Play lets you work together using your vehicles’ unique skills with modes such as ‘King of the Hill’ or ‘Capture the Flag’!

    The game’s been designed around fun and frantic play at every turn, meaning there will never be a dull moment on the racetrack or in the arena. Micro Machines World Series is the ultimate pick-up-and-play experience for players of all ages and abilities, offering intuitive, easy-to-learn controls that make the controller impossible to put down.

    Codemasters’ VP Publishing, Jonathan Bunney commented: “The original Micro Machines was a breakthrough multiplayer racing game and remains much loved in the gaming community. We saw great success last year with our free-to-play mobile game, but this brand new console title takes the franchise to its greatest levels of multiplayer mayhem and enables you to play with your friends on the same sofa or across the world.”

    Bunney continued: “With the support of Hasbro and being able to feature some of their biggest brands, such as HUNGRY HUNGRY HIPPOS, G.I. JOE, OUIJA and NERF, this represents the very best of social gaming.” He also added that the game brings an “incredibly fun experience” to PCs and consoles, offering a breath of fresh air from the more serious multiplayer alternatives.

    Releasing in April 2017, Micro Machines World Series will support up to 12 players online and four players on the same screen, across a variety of racing and battling environments. Each of the 12 vehicles has its own unique load-out of weapons and abilities and the game will launch with a massive range of customisation options.

    NICE! trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJ9krpTcGuE



    I did put trailer in the description but it is easily missed, it would be nice if we could embed videos.

    I'll probably be interested in this depending on price. Used to love Micro Machines on my Megadrive.

    Perhaps something to add to the OP(?) - the game will support local multiplayer (4 player split screen).

    Edit: never mind. It's already there X)

    On a few Nintendo threads you complain about people bashing Nintendo, which I understand why would people want to go on a Nintendo thread just to bash it.

    But your comment here just screams hypocrite to me

    Nice been playing 2 on my Mega Drive. Mucho fun.

    Oh please, it is tongue & cheek reference to all that recent nonsense for goodness sakes. I haven't mass put down anything with a fair comment too.

    Back on topic - fond memories of a Codemasters Micromachines game on Sega Megadrive. Great fun and good multiplayer. With the bigger display resolutions and TV screens of today this game in theory could be brilliant on consoles.

    Erm yes, I think you will find that lack of third party software titles is one of the 627 (and counting) criticisms the Nintendo haters have documented recently on here

    Cheers Turks, I hadn't seen the trailer or anything about this yet. Nice to see it's on the cards again! (retro pun intended)

    How is this not on switch

    Who's to say it won't be?

    Eagerly awaiting some gameplay footage, hopefully it's not just a rebrand of Toybox Turbos.
    Getting graphics anything like the trailer seems like wishful thinking, but if the lighting is even vaguely similar it could look great.

    want this, hopefully you can change the camera view from top down, make it more interesting lol

    So toybox turbos two then, i liked that but it wasn't good enough for a full retail game is this going to be a full priced retail release.

    No gameplay in that trailer doesnt bode well.
