Earlier this month we brought you news of the confirmed date for the release of the Nintendo 3DS version of Codemasters’ F1 2011 in the UK. Well that day has come and gone which means the game has finally arrived so for those that live life in the fast lane you can now play your favorite racing game on the go.
As with the announcement of the game’s UK release date, Codemasters has also launched a video showcasing some of the in-game graphics and gameplay to commemorate the arrival of the game. The video that was launched with the announcement only teased parts of the gameplay, which was broken up with bulletins of what the games key features included.
The launch trailer which can be viewed below reveals a lot more than the first did without interruptions from writing across the screen. Again it shows the game being played on the actual 3DS, where it is revealed that both screens serve a dual purpose. The bottom screen is used for navigation, showing players where they are on the map and what bends are coming up and the top screen features the main racing gameplay.
Here is a reminder of what some of the key features of the game are. Firstly there are the multiplayer mode options which include co-operative career mode for two players and head to head time trial modes and a Grand Prix mode which both support up to four players. Challenge modes, time trials, Grand Prix and full seasons are also available for single players. CVG also notes that F1 2011 will be among the launch titles for the PS Vita which is expected to arrive in Japan next month.
