Part F-Zero, part Splatoon, Trailblazers is the new racing game from Superplonk and publisher Rising Star Games, eschewing the usual racing rules in favour of a co-operative experience. Two teams are pitted against one another, with the twist being that players can paint the track behind them their team’s colour, boosting the speed of teammates who subsequently race across it. If you’re still trying to wrap your head around it, have a gander at the new Trailblazers gameplay trailer to see what it’s all about.

From the looks of things, the front-runner can dictate the racing lines of the following pack, although it is also possible to paint over the opposing team’s racing lines at the cost of some much-needed boost.

Trailblazers has a simple enough concept that’s also fresh, and those two factors are generally a ticket to success. Crucially though, the racing also needs to feel great. Which, er, we can't really tell from just looking at it. There’s a lot of Wipeout and F-Zero DNA on show here, including the frighteningly high speeds, looping tracks, and weaponised combat.

When it launches on May 8th, Trailblazers will have a full single-player story mode to play through, as well as up to four-player split screen or 3v3 races online. If you’re lacking players then the remaining spots of the starting grid can be filled by AI challengers.

Trailblazers is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

Why can't we just get a damn F-Zero game rather than games claiming to be like F-Zero?! Nintendo is truly run by retards.
