Vienna, Austria / Helsinki, Finland, September 24th, 2021: It's a me ... Wreckfest! Critically acclaimed demolition racer is soon to be tire-squealing onto Nintendo Switch™. Wreckfest features do not include Chris Pratt, or princesses, and does not come with turtles, but it does include lawnmowers, harvesters, school busses, and although we don’t have anyone to fix a toilet, that doesn’t mean you can’t drive one. Actually, even while you are on a toilet...

Wreckfest offers multiple racing tracks, dozens of vehicles, crazy and normal ones, a truckload of customization options, and the best-looking vehicular destruction you can get.

Wreckfest will be available on Nintendo Switch™ in Fall 2021 and will feature an up-to-16-player online multiplayer mode as well as constant 30 FPS. The SRP for both, the digital and the retail edition is $ 39.99 / € 39.99 / £ 34.99.
