Yggdrasil and Nitro Circus collaborate for first ever branded game
Nitro Circus is by far the biggest sports-entertainment brain in the world. Led by the impressive Travis Pastrana – a daring stunt-artist, motorsports driver and all-round action-sports star – Nitro Circus leaves us in no doubt that we are in for the ride of our lives. This first branded slot promises to bring big things to our small screens, and will hopefully be just the first of many more exciting games to come in the near future.
The release of the new slot is planned to coincide with a world tour from Nitro Circus entitled ‘You Got This’, which is visiting six different countries in Europe as it progresses. This exciting partnership joins two of the younger companies in their respective industries, both of which have successfully made their mark, proving themselves time and time again by their innovations and forward-thinking attitudes. We cannot wait to see what else they have in store.
To give you a better idea of what’s in store with this new game, it’s important to know what the Nitro Circus tour entails. As the name suggests, this is essentially a circus, but with a difference. Gone are the animals, the glamorous costumes and the clowns. Instead, there are the roars of engines, jaw-dropping stunts and a group of daredevils willing to try anything in the name of entertainment.
The tour began life in Australia, and soon transitioned into the world-famous tour that it is today. Travelling around the globe, it has been on five separate continents, blowing box office records out of the water and garnering itself a legion of dedicated followers. The tour itself constantly changes as its members seek to outdo their own stunts and performances, aiming for bigger and more intense driving feats. Dirt bikes have never looked so good.
Whilst there are, as yet, no details forthcoming from either camp about what the Nitro Circus game will entail, it is a safe bet that it will be full of action. The members of Nitro Circus live on the edge. They’ve already released successful 3D movies and DVDs, and appeared on other mainstream media options like TV, also with great success.
The crew is comprised of; BMX bikers, skiers, snowboarders, freestyle motocross riders, wheelchair specialists and much more, so the possibilities are truly endless. Teaming all this with Yggdrasil – and the inevitable stunning graphics, superb animations, and thoughtful and detailed bonuses and gameplay options – leaves us with mouth-watering possibilities.
As each collaborator prides itself on ensuring that games meet player wants and needs, it is highly likely that this slot will provide action of the highest order in all aspects of the game. There will surely be more to come from these two industry innovators.
