Anki has teamed up with Universal to bring a new edition of their battle-racing game to fans with the Anki OVERDRIVE: Fast & Furious Edition. The Anki OVERDRIVE games utilize robotics to power their Supercars in fast-paced player battles against AI opponents or friends.
“We’ve been searching for the right brand partnership to elevate our robotic battle-racing experience to the next level of entertainment, and what better fit than one of the most widely recognized action franchises in the world,” said Boris Sofman, CEO & Co-founder, Anki. “Anki OVERDRIVE: Fast & Furious Edition delivers the ultimate adrenaline rush to millions of Fast & Furious fans, merging the films’ cars and characters with videogame elements, physical play, and robotics.”
The Fast & Furious Edition features a new Power Zone track piece, as well as two new Supercars inspired by the movie:
- International MXT – Hobbs’ iconic truck drives like its owner: Tough and steady. It rolls over obstacles, protected by its plated armor. The MXT’s weapons are blunt and direct, causing
massive destruction. Its primary weapon, the rocket launcher, fires a deadly missile with a huge area of effect that wipes out everything in its path.
- Ice Charger – Dominic Toretto built his car for one purpose: Speed. He has no problem playing fast and loose, so long as he wins. Dom’s Ice Charger uses a Grappling Hook to gain advantage. Fire it into cars to pull yourself closer and slow down opponents.
The new edition is compatible with existing Anki OVERDRIVE Supercars, tracks, and expansion kits but does require a separate app for Android, iOS, and Fire OS.
Anki OVERDRIVE: Fast & Furious Edition is now available at major retailers in the U.S., including Amazon, Best Buy, Target, Toys ‘R’ Us, and Anki.com for $169.99USD. In Canada, the game will be available Amazon.ca, Best Buy Canada, Indigo, and Toys ‘R’ Us Canada. for CA$239.99CAD.
