This morning Firemint released some additional details about the upcoming Real Racing 2, along with the best news of all: We'll be playing the game before Christmas. They've also released a short gameplay video which features a Nissan GT-R (R35), but Firemint has stressed that this is still in development, and not representative of the final game.
It gets better yet, they're promising a career mode that will "easily provide 10 hours of gameplay" as players earn in-game money by winning races and increasing their reputation. We will be able to buy and sell cars, unlock tracks and additional championship events, and even customize cars with various performance enhancements and paint jobs. The game will support all iPhones and iPod touch models, going all the way back to first generation hardware while having enhancements for the latest devices as well.
Needless to say, I can't wait.
