Micro Machines v4 Announced

Micro Machines to make a massive return as Codemasters confirms plans for Micro Machines v4 is the announcement that the ultra-compact car series is to return this summer:

A smash-hit series through the 1990s, Codemasters, has once again secured the rights to the miniature vehicles for an all-new video game that promises a real return to the MICRO MACHINES game’s much loved, all-out fun, racing gameplay. The property is under license from the Hasbro Properties Group, the intellectual property development arm of Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE: HAS).

MICRO MACHINES v4 game, titled as a sequel to the last MICRO MACHINES game from Codemasters, is now in development for PlayStation®2, PC, PSP™ and Nintendo DS™. Scheduled for a summer 2006 release, development is back with the team at Supersonic Software, creators of some of the most acclaimed MICRO MACHINES games and more recently Mashed and Mashed: Fully Loaded.

Mixing miniature mayhem with maximum multiplayer racing, MICRO MACHINES v4 game will arrive packed with knockabout, breakneck racing in the fastest scale miniatures, complete with explosive weapon power-ups. Letting you loose with hundreds of vehicles, each with distinctive performance abilities, you’ll be racing your inch-long miniature motors on the wildest tracks where everyday household objects appear immense in size and can become lethal hazards.

Hrm. Looks like they're taking away the top-down perspective? That's why MMv3 was so fun...8 people on one PSX playing a game anyone could understand after about 10 seconds. Surprising hit at parties...I still have it, and it comes out right around the time everyone's good n toasty.

This is one game that needs to be 2D

It doesn't have the style of the Micro Machines track environments, but "Mashed" is a game that bears some decided similarities to the MM series.

That makes it sound like the game series is called Codemasters and the game itself has secured the rights to Micro Machines. I wish more companies would hire proofreaders, it would be a nice summer job for me...

Strange - the Codemasters press release says screenshots are included, but they doesn't appear to be linked anywhere.

This could be interesting... it was one of the few arcadey games that seemed to work well on PC. Hopefully they won't change the perspective or stray too far from its roots - I only hope the PS2s lack of power won't hold back the other versions.
