Though Switch owners have had to wait around six months, publisher Nacon has now confirmed that WRC 10 will arrive on the system on 17th March. The rallying series has had decent support on Nintendo’s console, though we did feel that WRC 9 was a little flawed in our review.
Overall it looks to be a fully-featured version coming to Switch; part of the pitch is below.
The anniversary edition of WRC celebrating 50 years of the competition is still packed with new features and thrills. The historical mode allows players to relive 23 events that have marked the history of the Championship. With more content than ever, WRC 10 is a tribute to 50 years of rallying that will delight fans. The popular Career Mode is also present in the Switch™ version with the addition of a livery editor and the ability to create your own team. You can now put your colors on the championship cars, based on around 30 vehicles present in the WRC, WRC 2, WRC 3, Junior WRC categories, but also the game’s historic vehicles, alongside the 52 official teams of the 2021 season. Take up the challenge with your personalized team!
A big focus, of course, will be on the optimisation of the Switch version, with the porting team no doubt trying to balance performance and visuals. The series arguably hasn’t quite got it right so far, but if the technical solutions are found it could be a promising release.
We’ll see in a couple of months – are you tempted to pick it up on Switch?
