Asphalt sequel rolls on portables
Ubisoft to publish GameLoft's street-racing sim Urban GT 2 on DS this November, PSP next March.
GameLoft's Asphalt: Urban GT has already appeared on mobile phones, the N-Gage, and the Nintendo DS. Now the street-racing series is getting a new installment and a new platform. Ubisoft today announced that it will publish Asphalt: Urban GT 2 on the DS in November, with a PSP version to follow in March of next year.
The game will feature three dozen licensed cars and motorcycles racing on 30 tracks, as well as six game modes and the ability for players to tune their rides to suit their tastes. To complement the game's urban atmosphere, Ubisoft has acquired the rights to use music from Moby and The Pussycat Dolls, with the latter act even putting in an appearance in the game.
The PSP and DS versions of the game have not yet been rated, but a previously released N-Gage version has been rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older.
