If you're unfamiliar with the Real Racing series, and you own an iPhone, I've really got to wonder what in the world you've been up to these past few years. The original Real Racing [$2.99 / $0.99 (HD)] knocked our socks off when it was first released in 2009, and Real Racing 2 [$0.99 / $0.99 (HD)] continued the tradition a little over a year and a half later. Since then, Real Racing 2 has been on the cutting edge of iOS technology, and was among the first games to support 1080p out on the iPad 2 as well as being one of the first off the line to take advantage of the iPhone 4S. So, there's very good reason to get excited for the just announced Real Racing 3.

Rob Murray took the stage, and showed off this screenshot:

He then went on to show off a video of the game (which we'll post as soon as we get our hands on it) and mention the game will have real tracks such as Leguna Seca, real cars with Porsche, Audi, and Dodge. It'll even have 22 cars in each race.

Sounds awesome.

    Aww... was expecting some new IP from a new studio that is totally packed with talent.

    Still good news though.

      They were obviously working on this prior to the merger.

    I have an iOS and Android device, and I love the previous entries in this series, but I still wish this game was coming to the 3DS. I can't help but think that this game would be improved with stereoscopic 3D graphics (especially the interior views) and triggers for manual shifting. Have they added manual shifting into this game yet?

       Doubt 3DS could even run it lol

      3DS? Really? I mean, i can see the Vita crowd begging for a decent arcade/simulation racing game like RR3 because it has the horsepower and we all know it will take forever before Gran Turismo Vita come out. But the 3ds... Come on...

      I've played Real Racing on a 3D Android phone, and you're right, it does play very well, especially with the interior view.
