The official Nikko RC Racer
To make Nikko RC Racer, we teamed up with Elastik. Concepts and Nikko RC. Nikko is a leading radio controlled toy manufacturer. It is their 55th anniversary this year, and a free racing game is of course the perfect way to celebrate.
Drive a real Nikko
The game features 10 exclusive Nikko cars, spanning several decades of RC history. Drive trough water at top speed with the VaporizR, blast your way to the finish with the N-Blaster or go for vintage with the Champion Kart – one of the first Nikko vehicles. All vehicles are based on the real RC cars, and each has its own unique driveability.
Race against your friends
Nikko RC Racer is fully focused on racing against your friends. Race with 10 exclusive Nikko cars on 9 different tracks. When you connect with Facebook, your replay is saved in the cloud; You can see the ghost replays of your friends and beat their times. This means you experience the thrill of an actual race, without having to be in the same session at the same time.
Fill your RC garage
The game is free to play, and can acquire premium cars to try new wheels. There are several ways to unlock the premiums:
- Purchase a real Nikko RC car, and use the promo code in the packaging
- Like Nikko RC on Facebook to unlock the explosive N-Blaster
- Purchase one premium car for $0,99 or all the premium cars for $ 2,99
The cars are fine tuned so every vehicle “feels” unique. With 10 cars and 9 tracks to race on, there is plenty to explore!
Win a Nikko
To celebrate Nikko’s 55th anniversary, they give away a real N-Blaster every week. To join the competition, simply download the game and start racing. Whenever you get a super fast time, or do an awesome trick, be sure to save the replay on EveryPlay. Each week, the coolest video wins an N-Blaster. Just to let you know, the real-life N-Blaster has a laser and can shoot missiles.
So stay tuned – and be sure to get Nikko RC Racer this Thursday! You can get it from the App Store on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
