After the recent success of Motorstorm Apocalypse, Evolution studios has decided to release its second foray into the handheld genre, Motorstorm RC. The game has players controlling RC cars on sixteen tracks taken from all previous Motorstorm games. Its the best of both worlds, with an arcade-like racing experience, and modern day online compatibility. It will be released Spring 2012 as a PSN only downloadable title, but it will be playable on both the Vita and PS3, including a four-player split-screen mode on the PS3.
Split-screen has slowly been dying over the years, so it’s good to know that split-screen is being included in this downloadable title. Cross-platform play has not been confirmed, but it has been strongly hinted at. Game developers should take a hint and start bringing back this feature. More details after the jump
