If you’re anything like me, there’s a large chunk of your gaming memory made up of chasing the sun in high-speed games like Ridge Racer, Daytona USA, or OutRun. Well, the good news is that arcade racing doesn’t have to be quarantined to the past, as Horizon Chase 2 is here to put you back behind the wheel, with the visual stimuli turned up beyond anything you could have imagined as a kid.
It’s all just a short while away too, with the Horizon Chase 2 release date sneaking up like a second-place driver with a point to prove. This new sequel to the original Horizon Chase is seven years in the making and looks all the better for it from the trailer, with a selection of stunning raceways on display. Not that you can make out much of them at 200+kmh.
With online options available in all game modes, there’s no shortage of ways to get competitive in Horizon Chase 2 if you find all those years of OutRun have made you a little too tough for AI opponents. There’s also new customisation features for those looking to stand out from their fellow speedsters by adding a little spice to their hot rod. You couldn’t do that in Daytona USA.
When is the Horizon Chase 2 release date?
There’s not long to wait for the mobile version of Aquiris Games’ arcade racer, with an Apple Arcade Horizon Chase 2 release date set for September 9. Unfortunately, Switch racers will have a little longer to wait, with the title arriving on the Nintendo console at an unspecified date in 2023.
There you have it, all you have to do is buckle up until the Horizon Chase 2 release date rolls around. For more horsepower and miles per hour, be sure to check out our picks for the best mobile racing games.
