Niche Spotlight – Circuit Superstars

Circuit Superstars

Today’s Niche Spotlight is Circuit Superstars, a top-down racing game by Original Fire Games and Square Enix that recently left Early Access.

Circuit Superstars is a top-down racing game designed to have a fairly high skill ceiling, and in-depth mechanics despite its fairly arcadey presentation. The game draws vehicles from across all the most popular motorsports; including Rallycross, SuperTrucks, Formula 1, GT racing, and more.

The game features tire degradation, fuel management, and damage models, meaning you’ll need to take pit stops into account during a race. It features a variety of single player content, online multiplayer for up to 12 players, leaderboards with ghost racing options to see how you stack up against the best, weekly time trials, and couch co-op for up to 4 players.

You can find the launch trailer below.

Circuit Superstars is available on Windows PC (via Steam), and Xbox One for $19.99 USD.

You can find the rundown (via Steam) below:

CIRCUIT SUPERSTARS is a top-down racer built by racing fans, for racing fans. The game celebrates generations of multi-disciplinary motorsport, focusing on driving that feels great – but with a high skill ceiling, that will have players spending hours honing their perfect lap. Starting out is simple but learning the nuances of each car’s handling and finding the best racing line through each corner of each track will be a challenge for a long time to come. Not only that, but with the option of fuel usage, tire degradation and racing damage, even a good pit stop strategy could make the difference between hero and zero. Feel the rubber bite into the road as you pass the start/finish line and dive, brakes squealing, into the first corner!
