  • Built by Motor racing fans, for Motor Racing Fans – A lifetime of racing experience inspired the developers to build the racing world of Circuit Superstars. The developers grew up on the pitlane, the paddock and the racetrack, living and loving the entirety of motorsport.

Phil Elliott, Head of Square Enix Collective says: “CIRCUIT SUPERSTARS is a wonderful representation of how developers can combine a deep love of motorsport and of gaming to create something special for both communities. CIRCUIT SUPERSTARS is unique in how it offers charming, relaxed gaming to some players, as well as a challenging, rewarding racing simulation to others, all in the same game.”
Alberto Mastretta, Founder & Creative Director at Original Fire Games says: “Launching CIRCUIT SUPERSTARS is a huge accomplishment for us as a new studio, and we are so excited to release it today. This project has meant the world to us – motorsport has been a significant source of joy throughout our lives, and we have formed bonds with friends and family in physical and virtual race tracks. We have put everything we have into paying homage to the sport we love, to bring those same meaningful experiences to players.”
Carolina Mastretta, Founder & Studio Lead at Original Fire Games further added “Seeing incredible drivers like Lando Norris, Romain Grosjean, Jamie Chadwick and many others resonate with our game is a huge honour, it fuels our energy to keep building on what we’ve created so far. We’re excited to be on the track with all of you, sharing those special moments, and celebrating the world of motorsport together!” 

We’re going to be getting hands-on with Circuit Superstars as soon as is humanly possible, mostly as we can’t keep ourselves away from those glorious visuals. We’ll drop some review thoughts as and when we can but in the meantime you’d do well to hit up the Xbox Store and grab a copy of the game right now. £15.74 seems a super tempting price to pay. 

Game Description:

CIRCUIT SUPERSTARS is a top-down racer built by racing fans, for racing fans. The game celebrates generations of multi-disciplinary motorsport, focusing on driving that feels great – but with a high skill ceiling, that will have players spending hours honing their perfect lap. Starting out is simple but learning the nuances of each car’s handling and finding the best racing line through each corner of each track will be a challenge for a long time to come. Not only that, but with the option of fuel usage, tire degradation and racing damage, even a good pit stop strategy could make the difference between hero and zero.
