When prompted via Twitter by Xperia Play fan site XperiaGamer when we might see Reckless Racing 2, the sequel to 2010's excellent top-down arcade racer Reckless Racing [99¢/Lite/HD], the game's developer Polarbit responded that we can expect the game to hit next week on February 2nd.

We really liked the original Reckless Racing in our review, and the sequel looks to up the ante with a fleshed-out single-player campaign, longer tracks, and improved visuals over the already gorgeous first game. You can catch a glimpse of Reckless Racing 2 in the all-to-brief teaser video above, and we'll have more of the game when it launches next week.

    Didn't really get the appeal if the first one.  A bad version of RC Pro Am

      It had slick handling, good physics, nice visuals, and ran at a solid 30fps. Plus it had more polish than most iOS games.

        I don't dispute any of that.  Those are all largely aesthetic pluses.  The gameplay itself was not very engaging to me.  I didn't find any challenge to be had either.

        A game has to do more than look and run well for me to be into it.  We all have different criteria.

        I thought the hillbilly theme was one of the most fun parts about the original, without that they're "just another racer," I hope they keep the personality in this sequel.

    The first one was excellent, hampered only by the silly rednick/hillbilly theme. Looks like this is more real world racing type stuff, which should be a lot better.

    Wow that trailer looks cool. Reminds me of draw race 2 but where you have control of the car. Loved the first game so this will be a buy for me.

    if it will by a usual EA brand (no universal support, GameCenter for advertisement only) then i wont pay it, not even 0,79€

    Looks awesome! Loved the first one and can't wait to play this on iPad 2.

    Didn't get to play the 1st one since I thought it was similar to Death Rally (which I played the hell out of).... might pick this one up sometime.

    Reckless Racing is a terrific game. This one looks even better. Agree that the hillbilly theme being dropped will make the game more appealing.
