Oh boy. One of my absolute childhood favourites. I will be all over this providing they don't screw it up.

Is nobody remastering Speed Freaks then? :(
I used to be eVoL but I got better.
I like everything now.

I'd love to even just be able to buy Speed Freaks and Micro Maniacs on PSN in their original format.

Speed Freaks was an absolute gem.

Looks like there's a lot more content being crammed in here than just the base PS1 game. Good stuff.

Eagerly awaiting my copy, but I won't be around to play it over the next couple of weeks. :cry:

Can now confirm that this is brilliant. I don't think I've ever seen such a lovingly done remaster. The handling and controls are perfectly preserved, the graphics are excellent, the additional elements they've added in with character design and animation are all just perfect.

There's a fair few extra tracks from the sequels (which aren't as legendary but are still a very welcome addition) plus a whole bunch of characters to unlock from the sequels and kart customisation options. No microtransactions in sight, everything is bought on the in-game store using currency you earn from playing. They've even confirmed some DLC seasons which will add further characters and tracks all completely for free.

In the spirit of a forgotten age of gaming it even has cheat codes!

Can't wait to take it online when my internet is restored. Single best kart racing game ever made.
