Zordix announced that Aqua Moto Racing Utopia will launch on the Xbox One as well as have features and enhancements available for the Xbox One X starting May 4th. The game will be available for $9.99.
The game originally came out a few years ago for PC, where Zordix spent quite a bit of time fixing up the title and improving the overall playability. After launching on PC and Wii U, the game is now set to arrive on the Xbox One, featuring 44 different watercraft, and 50 different racing events for you to partake in.
You can check out the actual gameplay with the launch trailer below.
The trailer highlights some of the different tracks and racing disciplines you’ll encounter throughout the game, which includes the standard checkpoint circuit tracks, as well as stunt races that take place inside of a stadium.
A couple of years ago when I first played the game it didn’t have proper controller support, performance was a little unoptimized and not all of the features were intact. However, over time the game was updated, improved and made more complete.
The actual gameplay is really solid now, mirrored after the gameplay of the N64 classic Wave Race 64. After the controller support was improved and the optimizations put into place, it was definitely far more fun to play than I had anticipated. Some of the wave effects and stages also add some interesting dynamics to the gameplay, offering players different types of challenges in how they approach a stage. For instance, mastering how to ride the waves as they ebb and flow through the stage will determine how well you’ll be able to maintain your top speeds or pull off certain stunts.
What’s more is that there are 10 different environments to race through, and multiplayer support for up to eight players online and up to four players in local split-screen play. You can look to get your hands on the game digitally from the Xbox Store starting May 4th.
