What one iconic movie or TV car deserves to have its die-cast incarnation in Hot Wheels Unleashed?
The correct answer is, of course, the Hemicuda from Phantasm. However, Mattel and Milestone have let us all down and The Tall Man’s vehicular bane won’t be make an appearance in the upcoming die-cast car racer. That’s the bad news.
The good news is that, as revealed by the latest trailer, the game will be featuring a whole host of other iconic cars, including the Delorean from Back to the Future, KITT from Knight Rider, Snoopy’s Kennel Car, the Batmobile and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ van. No ECTO-1 but you can count on seeing new cars drop as DLC, so you never know. These cars also exist as toys in the real world, so if you’re a completist you can have one sitting on your sofa arm while you race it around in-game.
You can check out the trailer below if you want to see the cars in action, or get your hands on Hot Wheels Unleashed when it lands on PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, Playstation 4 and Playstation 5 this September 30th.
