Need for Speed: Nitro is the new game for Need for Speed or better known as NFS series. Electronic Arts announced Need for Speed: Nitro with two other games Need for Speed: Shift and Need for Speed: World Online in January 2009. Need for Speed: Nitro will release only for the consoles of Nintendo Wii and DS. EA Montreal is developing Nitro. The game will be published by Electronic Arts. EA Montreal is developing the game because of their previous experience with Nintendo titles. However, it was reported that the Nintendo DS version is developed separately by Firebrand Game’s Florida studio. Need for Speed: Nitro will release in 2009, however a confirmed date is still awaited from the developers.

As we, all know that Wii is about soft gaming not traditional hardcore gaming so Need for Speed: Nitro will be a soft game. EA is changing their franchise model for this latest game. However, the game’s basics will not be affected by the change in the model, Need for Speed: Nitro will feature customizable licensed vehicles just like the previous titles. Cop-mode is also included in the game. Gameplay of the game can be distinguished by unrealistic and fast arcade racing with vibrant visuals just like one more upcoming game Blur. Marketing manager for EA Keith Munro states that Need for Speed: Nitro will be completely different from any of the previous game of the franchise and anything else seen so far. There will be icons in the race that have different effects. Some of the icons will include increasing opponent’s heat level or car repair. Reason for the change in the mode can be explained as an attempt to target wider range of audience, that’s why EA is going casual instead of usual hardcore.

Gameplay of the Need for Speed: Nitro will be arcade style. It will also feature cops, that will obstruct the player’s progression in race. Maximum players that a race can hold is 12 different modes like circuits, knockouts and sprints. If you are leading the race then most of the buildings will be painted in your color theme of your choice. So far there is no major gameplay effects. Cars featuring in the game will be Nissan Skyline, Audi R8, Lamborghini Reventon and 1969 Dodge Charger R/T. A promotional trailer displayed the buildings in different vibrant colors and other uneven police vehicles. One thing that was weird and interesting about the trailer was that the police vehicles were bearing the word Policia, Spanish word for police.
