On your mark, get ready to race!
If you have a young child, you might be familiar with Nickelodeon’s Blaze and the Monster Machines. A CGI animated series, it focuses on monster truck Blaze and his human driver AJ. Along with other anthropomorphic monster trucks, the pair get involved in all sorts of adventures around the world of Axle City. And now, the series has its own video game.
Called Blaze and the Monster Machines: Axle City Racers, it’s aimed at pre-school aged children and introduces them to video games with simple controls and bright, bold designs. Players will engage in a championship around Axle City, taking control of one of seven well-known characters.
There’s also local multiplayer support, allowing players to get their friends and family involved. Up to four players can engage in split screen races, competing for glory.
Just like the programme itself, the game has a focus on STEM with an aim to engage children with maths and science learning. It’s being published by Outright Games, a company known for releasing a range of licensed titles aimed at children.
Give the trailer a watch below. There’s no firm release date for Blaze and the Monster Machines: Axle City Racers just yet, outside of “autumn”. We’ll have more news as it becomes available.
