Auto racing has become a big thing in recent years. Due to the meteoric rise of Formula 1, everyone is aware of the sport and its various iterations. One of those iterations is the World Rally Championship that is also under the FIA.
Borrowing from its sister competition Formula 1, the WRC has also tried to reach a wider audience. And there’s no better way to do that than by tapping into a medium like gaming. Therefore, the competition has teamed up with a French developer Nacon to develop video games for them.
WRC generations is the latest entry in this series and will be available shortly October for all platforms. The game was announced for the Nintendo Switch from the developers. Now we finally have a release date for the Switch version, which will be released this year.
- WRC Generations will be released on Switch on December 15, 2022.
- This release is confirmed for Japan, but not for other regions.
- The game will also be available on all other platforms this October.
The Nintendo Switch version of WRC Generations will be released on December 15, 2022. The Japanese video game developer 3goo announced it officially on September 22nd. Therefore, the FIA-licensed game based on the championship will be released on Switch in Japan later this year.
Previously, Nacon had vaguely said WRC Generations would be out later this year, but now we know the exact date. 3goo is also a proficient developer of racing video games. The Japanese studio has previously worked on it Gear Club Unlimited and its sequel for Switch.
WRC Generations will have hybrid cars that are part of the competition this year. This is also the first time the rally has been held in Japan in 12 years, so this is something special for the fans. Some screenshots of the game were also included in 3goo’s announcement.
In the first picture you can see them Subaru Impreza used by the Subaru World Rally Team when fighting for the championship. How the training in WRC Generations will look like, we can see in the 2nd picture. You can also see the split screen mode in the image below.
A Split screen mode is a feature missing in many modern racing games. So it is very good for the players to have this in WRC Generations. You can play with your friends and family without going online.
WRC Generations appears October 13th on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Microsoft Windows. Nintendo Switch will get the game in Japan this December, but there’s no confirmation for other regions. Hopefully it will release worldwide for the Switch on December 15th so players don’t have to wait long.
