F1 Race Stars Coming To Wii U

Published November 3, 2013 by |

Last year saw the release of cutesey F1-inspired kart racer F1 Race Stars, featuring cartoon-style versions of real world drivers facing off against each other in scaled down cars. Now, the game is making it’s way to the Wii U.

The game originally appeared on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in November of 2012 — arriving just a few short weeks ahead of the Wii U’s late November launch. However, if you’ve been clamouring to play this on your Gamepad then you don’t have to wait much longer, as one year on the game is making its Wii U debut. 

F1 Race Stars is coming to the Wii U this December, in a souped-up ‘Powered Up Edition’. This exclusive version features nine accessory packs and four new tracks to send your tiny versions of Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel racing round. There are also a number of console unique features including a chance to race as your very own Mii as well as tilt controls and a map on the Gamepad.

The ‘Powered Up Edition’ will be available via the Wii eShop as a download-only title in December this year.
