Formula Bit Racing first appeared on PC via Steam in February 2021. Created by one-man publisher/developer, Josep Monzonis Hernandez, the game combines low-poly visuals with arcade-style handling.
Today (6th July 2022), however, 2Awesome Studio has announced it is bringing a console port of the game to PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch, releasing on 8th July.
The name has changed for its console bow – it will now be known as Formula Bit Racing DX – but the gameplay and aesthetics remain the same. Featuring an isometric viewpoint – think along the lines of the excellent Circuit Superstars – the game features 10 different cars and 20 varied circuits.
Josep Monzonis Hernandez previously created Retro Pixel Racers, a colourful 16-bit Micro Machines-inspired game that we felt was hamstrung by an infuriatingly vertical learning curve. Will Formula Bit Racing improve upon its predecessor?
Formula Bit Racing DX will be available for PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One/Series X|S and Nintendo Switch on the 8th of July, priced at £4.99/$4.99/€4.99. A 20% discount is available on pre-orders for the Switch and Xbox versions now, costing £3.99/$3.99/€3.99.
We have been spoiled in recent times by retro-themed racers, thanks to the likes of Formula Retro Racing, Race Condition and Neodori Forever, and there seems to be no let-up in demand for the genre.
