MotorStorm RC Announced for PS Vita and PSN

The PlayStation Vita may already have a ton of games set to release in early 2012, but Sony is keen to ensure that you won’t be able to find something to suite your tastes. Brutal off-road racing Motorstorm will be coming to the Vita next year, as well as the PS3’s PSN – but with a radio controlled twist.

Developed by Evolution Studios, MotorStorm RC will feature all four MotorStorm world, but instead of driving around in normal sized cars, you will use high-speed radio-controlled cars. As the game is available on Sony’s new portable, Evolution have made sure that levels take moments to load so you can play the game anywhere and at any time.

The game is coming to both the Vita and the PS3, but you will only need to purchase the game once. There will be cross-play features, but Sony hasn’t gone into detail on what they are just yet.

Off-Road Racing on a New Scale:

Conquer the most extreme racing environments in powerful radio-controlled vehicles, with hundreds of uniquely customized models to collect and performance based on 8 distinct racing categories: Buggies, Superminis, Rally Cars, Muscle Cars, Racing Trucks, Supercars, Big Rigs and Monster Trucks!

Four Classic Locations, 16 Unique Tracks:

Experience the simultaneous challenge and excitement of racing in the world’s most extreme environments, from the dusty desert mesa’s of Monument Valley, to the dangerous jungles of a Pacific island, to the icy tundra at the Arctic Edge, to the apocalyptic ruins of an urban city.

Settle Rivalries Anytime, Anyplace:

Challenge friends and the rest of the world to compete for the fastest times in every event – whether that’s on PS3 or PS Vita, or both.

Share Every Moment:

Share every moment with your friends and make new friends via the Pitwall. Keep tabs on their activity – so you always know when there’s a new challenge or a new leader – and you can always stay one step ahead of the competition.

Four-Player Multiplayer on PS3:

Settle the score with your friends in person with 4 player split-screen races.

Pay Once, Get Both:

It’s the same experience on both PS3 and PS Vita, and picking up the game on PS3 will give you full access to the game on PS Vita (and vice versa) – so if you own both you can carry your progress between the two, and always pick up where you left off.

A US release date for Motorstorm RC is set for next spring, but dates for other regions have not been announced.
