LONDON, UK – 17th Jan, 2024 – Developers New Star Games, the BAFTA award-winning studio behind hit games like New Star Soccer, Retro Goal and Retro Bowl are pleased to announce that their new retro-styled racing game, New Star GP, will be released this March on Xbox, PlayStation, Switch and PC Steam.

New Star GP is a fast and exciting arcade motorsport game with stunning retro visuals. Like all New Star Games’ titles, New Star GP is simple to play at heart, but contains a surprising amount of depth and details that reward players with an experience like no other game they’ve played.

Play Career Mode starting in the 80’s and work your way through decades of racing while upgrading your car and your support team, or chase high scores in Championship Mode on your own or in split-screen with friends.

The game boasts 176 unique events to play, including time trials, checkpoint races, reverse races, rival races, elimination events, and GP styled races! Compete against 45 unique drivers across the decades of racing, each with their own personalities and driving styles. Race on 17 gorgeous track locations around the world, all with unique playing styles, weather conditions and track abrasion values, providing a varied racing experience that requires different race strategies to maximise the chances of success.

Then there is the support team – engineer, pit and commercial staff that can unlock 86 unique perks across the decades of racing, boosting performance on and off the track.

On top of all this, there are 15 unique car body shells that can be unlocked and every car can be upgraded in 8 different ways. Additionally, each car can be improved by licensing tech packs from opposition teams.

When it comes to customisation, players can choose from an array of personalisation items including more than 60 helmets, hairstyles, colour, glasses, and more. Then there are unique car livery designs, plus the ability to change the colours of the designs and apply unlocked sponsorship logos.

Add to this the hundreds of unique news stories, dilemmas, and off-track role-playing events and you have a game that has all the DNA of a New Star Games title, wrapped up in a retro arcade racer.

And that’s just the career mode!

New Star GP also boasts 17 unique championship competitions set across the tracks from the career mode that can be enjoyed either in single player, or with up to 4 players. Each has a unique roster of tracks and game settings. The game also has a creation mode that allows players to create their own, bespoke championship competitions. Set the number of laps, weather, track configuration, difficulty, race speed, and a host of other options. Custom competitions can be raced in single or multiplayer with friends.

New Star GP is the biggest and most ambitious game that New Star Games has ever released. Developed by New Star Games and published by Five Aces Publishing.
