Fans of Codemasters’ F1 games will be enjoying the latest version, F1 2011, at the moment. It offers much more depth than the previous title, which was already very popular and the graphics are almost on par with the realism you would find in Gran Turismo 5. One thing these fans cannot do for now is play their game on the go.

At the moment the game is only available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC but today we have news that will please those gamers who like to play on the go as Codemasters has released a trailer that reveals the release date for the Nintendo 3DS version of the game. As CVG explains it is a work in progress gameplay movie that teases some of the gameplay you can expect from the version.

The video also reveals that the 3DS version will feature 60 quick-fire challenges, four player online play, and the circuits, stars and cars from this year’s F1 season as the home console version does except players will also be able to experience it in 3D. From the clip we can see that the dual screen of the Nintendo handheld comes in handy as the second screen acts as a circuit map allowing players to see their location on it and the turns ahead.

F1 2011 will be available on the 3DS on November 25th. A PlayStation Vita version of the game is also expected to be available when the system launches this year on December 17th. In the meantime check out the video clip below and see some of the amazing gameplay that will feature on the handheld versions for yourself. What do you think? Will you be getting the 3DS version of the game so you can compete on the go?
