Funselektor’s opus to driving sideways – Absolute Drift Zen Edition – is about to receive a brand new physical release for the Nintendo Switch, and pre-orders are live now.
Originally released in 2015 for PC, Linux and Mac, versions for PlayStation, Xbox, Android and iOS have followed, with Switch releasing in 2020.
Previously, a run of 4,000 physical PS4 copies was created by Limited Run Games in 2017, but this latest Switch release is by Serenity Forge.
Not only is the game on a cartridge, but it includes a fresh cover art design, an illustrated inner coversheet, a set of five stickers, a 3D lenticular art card and a poster.
All the artwork blends into the Absolute Drift theme, with its distinctive Japanese-inspired aesthetic delivering the ultimate fan edition.
In our review of the portable release, from the creators of the later art of rally, we said:
“The challenge-based gameplay is perfect for pick-up-and-play fun. Funselektor has managed to take hardcore driving sim gameplay physics and dress them up as a casual-friendly time killer, and any casual game that champions complex driving physics should be celebrated.”
The Premium Physical Edition is available to pre-order now for $34.99 and is expected to ship in the summer of this year.
