107w ago - Today Game Director Paul Rustchynsky has posted up a video introducing MotorStorm RC for PSN and PS Vita below.
To quote: I'm delighted to be able to announce - and show a trailer for - MotorStorm RC, Evolution Studios' upcoming radio controlled off-road racing game for PS Vita and PlayStation Network.
It was also announced literally moments ago on stage - so it's absolutely hot off the press! You can watch first video of MotorStorm RC in action here.
I've been game director to a small, elite team at Evolution Studios for most of the year, creating a simulation of high-speed radio-controlled car racing for PSN download.
We're extremely pleased with how the game is coming together; it's a perfect combination of classic racing with really modern connectivity features and it's already bigger than your average download game, with visually stunning renditions of all four MotorStorm worlds (and eight of their vehicle classes).
Every aspect of the game comes loaded with endless competition that you can share with friends and rivals worldwide - whether that's on PS3 or PS Vita, or both - and we're still packing it full of challenges, race types and features too!
