As we continue lamenting the lack of a new F-Zero game, Switch owners have got a few racers to choose from, but not many futuristic ones. Between Fast RMX, Redout, and the upcoming BallisticNG NX Edition, next up is Far S Ultra – the ‘Far’ stands for ‘Future Aero Racing’, by the way – which launches on the eShop on March 26th.
Developed by Nurendsoft, it previously launched for PC and Xbox One back in 2019 but mostly flew under the radar, only holding 9 (mostly positive) user reviews on Steam.
Speaking further about the Switch release, publisher Zerouno Games released this outline:
In Far S Ultra you will have to prove yourself as the fastest and most determined pilot among the fifteen circuits. Outspeed your friends (or foes), come rain or shine, in all cups and championships. Crush them in any difficulty level. There are 5 to choose from. Evolve your pilots and upgrade your cars winning races in Championship and Custom Championship modes. Untap your potential in the Attack Time mode, where each lap can be the last one. It’s time to prove your worth! FAR S Ultra!
Far S Ultra will offer a championship mode, time attack, custom matches, and split-screen multiplayer for 4 players. It also promises 5 cups, 15 circuits with variable weather, 10 unlockable teams, 40 car skins, and 30 challenges to undertake.
It’s not up for Switch pre-order yet and currently, and pricing remains unconfirmed. Considering it retails for £2.89 / €3,29 / $3.99 on Steam and a similar price on Xbox One, we wouldn’t expect it to be expensive on Switch.
