Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends Review: Encyclopedia Ferrarica

The last time we saw Atari’s Test Drive franchise, it was racing through the streets of Ibiza in Test Drive Unlimited 2. Since then, TDU developer Eden Games has run into some troubles, and the franchise as a whole seemed to be on the ropes. However, 2012 has brought us a very different use of the brand, with Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends. Developed by Slightly Mad Studios – the brains behind the short-lived Need For Speed: Shift franchise – this installment drops the open-world motif for a more traditional and narrowly focused racing experience, showcasing the lengthy history of one of the most exotic automobile manufacturers in the world.

New Releases: Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, Test Drive Ferrari, Secret World, More

After a fairly packed May and a decent June, it looks like game publishers plan to turn the new release spigot way down in July.

There’s just a handful of new releases this week, with Square Enix’s Theatrhythm Final Fantasy for the 3DS leading the pack. If you ever thought a rhythm game and a dungeon crawling RPG couldn’t coexist, you’d be wrong.

Also available this week is the latest entry in the Test Drive franchise. Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends for the PS3 and Xbox 360 will eschew the open world racing of the Unlimited series for a more self-contained collection of single tracks and fast cars. A downloadable PC version will also be available this week.

Funcom’s long-in-development MMO The Secret World (PC) will also make it into stores this week. If you need a little more modern day in your MMOs, it might be one to check out.

Finally, a trio of bargain-priced PC titles round out the week: Snark Busters 3 Pack, Natural Threat: Ominous Shores, and Vampire Saga: Break Out.

Atari will park Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends in stores this Spring

Atari has announced they plan to publish the next game in the long-running Test Drive series, Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends, for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 this Spring. Focusing exclusively on Ferris Bueller’s favorite type of automobile, Ferrari Racing Legends is being developed by Slightly Mad Studios, the same team behind the Shift series.

“Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends is a landmark chapter of the iconic Test Drive saga” said Jim Wilson, CEO of Atari, “Ferrari has been an essential partner throughout the history of the Test Drive franchise, and the opportunity to celebrate the unrivaled Ferrari Racing Team and the legendary Ferrari brand promises a one of a kind experience for all driving enthusiasts.”

Ferrari Racing Legends will include a Campaign Mode that traces the history of the Ferrari brand through unlockable tracks and cars. More than 50 cars will be featured in the final game along with 36 circuits. A multiplayer mode for up to eight players will also be included.

Oh Yeah… (chick chicka chicka).

Test Drive: Ferrari on track for a March 2012 release in Europe

Publisher Bigben Interactive has announced they’ve signed a deal to distribute Test Drive: Ferrari on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. Quick show of hands, did anyone even realize Test Drive: Ferrari was in development?

Details are a bit sparse on the 20th game in the long-running racing franchise, but we do know that it’ll be released in European territories (minus the United Kingdom) on March 30, 2012.

It’s currently unknown if Atari will pick up Test Drive: Ferrari for a North American release, but after the success of Test Drive Unlimited and Test Drive Unlimited 2, I’d say it’s pretty likely.
