Ahead of its official reveal in the coming days, EA’s latest entry in its racing franchise, Need For Speed, has been leaked quite heavily. This year’s episode in the series will apparently be called Unlimited need for speedand as we expected, it will launch before the end of 2022. However, perhaps the most important thing about this leak is that it confirms Unbound will contain an anime-influenced art style, which previous rumors suggested.
Spotted on the Japanese merchant site Neowing, the first official images and details of Unlimited need for speed have been revealed. The game is expected to come to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC, and it will launch in just under two months on December 2, 2022. While details are still somewhat scarce, a few screenshots from NFS unbound could also be seen in this leak. The images contain a much more dynamic and stylized look compared to what we have seen in other Need For Speed games in the past. Although Unbound the art was definitely inspired by the anime, its visual style is much more akin to something like Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
“Beat the clock, outsmart the cops and compete in weekly qualifiers for Lakeshore’s ultimate street racing challenge: The Grand. Fill your garage with fine-tuned custom machines, put on your own unique style and exclusive looks, and light up the streets with a soundtrack that resonates from every corner of the world,” says the description of Unlimited need for speed in this retail leak. “Bring graffiti to life in an all-new visual style, combining the latest street art with the most realistic cars in Need for Speed history. Access a new toolbox full of energetic visual and sound effects, including a new boost item, Burst Nitrous, for breakneck speed.”
