Firebrand Studios, in Glasgow, contacted us a couple of days ago to point towards some very positive coverage for the company’s current project for the Nintendo Gameboy 3DS, Need For Speed: The Run.
Due for release in November 2011, the game challenges players to compete in an illegal San Francisco – New York road race. According to IGN’s preview, it features all of the crashes, take downs and crazy stunts which have made the franchise so popular.
The game has been designed from the ground up by Firebrand’s Glasgow studio. The story and narrative within the game is delivered via comic style panels which, Firebrand tells us, have been created by noted UK comic artists, many of whom are based in Scotland.
We’ll be keeping an eye on this new project and updating you as and when there’s more information…
