NASCAR 11 Confirmed for Nintendo Wii on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Activision has confirmed it will be bringing NASCAR The Game 2011 to Nintendo's Wii console (plus PS3/Xbox 360) in February next year from developer Eutechnyx.  With a fresh infusion of real world detail and blistering racing action, NASCAR The Game 2011 completely redefines what fans can expect from a NASCAR racing game.  NASCAR The Game 2011 has been built from the ground up to make a thoroughly new experience.  The team started by speaking with the people who know NASCAR best (the fans) and took that insight to the teams, drivers and officials to completely embrace what makes NASCAR America's No.1 motorsport.

Players can choose to play as themselves or as one of the sport's real-world drivers as they battle it out for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship. Each pro driver has the AI characteristics of his or her real world counterpart, setting the stage for intense rivalries played out on the track.  Damage is meticulously detailed and multi-car wrecks are the most extreme ever experienced in an officially licensed racing game. From the 22 real world tracks to full pit stop strategy action, NASCAR The Game 2011 captures the real atmosphere, sense of speed and spectacle that embodies NASCAR. Players can even feel the thrill of a win with the interactive celebration mode.  The game also includes in-depth multiplayer modes that allow up to sixteen players to battle it out for the win online. In both online and offline races, players earn NASCAR experience points which help unlock rewards such as decal packs or special car designs, as well as career sponsorships and special races throughout career mode. Everything you do on the track counts.

While NASCAR has enjoyed a rich history in video games, we really wanted to take the next generation of NASCAR games to a new level. By partnering directly with Eutechnyx, the leading driving game developer in the business, to create NASCAR The Game 2011, we are convinced NASCAR fans and gamers alike will be blown away by the result.  With Activision as the publishing partner, we have the perfect combination to set the bar for all future NASCAR titles.
- Blake Davidson, Managing Director of Licensed Products at NASCAR.

The NASCAR videogame fanbase has been underserved for a long time and we're bringing them something very special.
- David Oxford, Activision Publishing.

It was crucial to take a fresh look at what makes the sport so popular. We're working very closely with NASCAR, the drivers, the teams, the tracks and the sponsors to get all the minute details right, and give this game the polish and push the fans deserve.
- Ed Martin, Executive Vice President at Eutechnyx.
