Square Enix reveals Circuit Superstars at E3 2019

A new top-down racer called Circuit Superstars was revealed during Square Enix's E3 2019 conference.


Square Enix started off their conference strong, showcasing some of the company’s bigger titles, before diving deep into the less well-known of their upcoming games. One of the many new announcements made during the Square Enix E3 2019 conference was a top-down racing game called Circuit Superstars, and it’s coming to PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch in 2020.

Circuit Superstars was previously known as Apex Racing League, a game announced back in 2018. The upcoming race-oriented game offers players a bite-sized racing experience, with support for both solo and multiplayer races. Square Enix invites players to enter the charming world of motorsport by transporting them into a beautifully rendered top-down world where every move that you make is key to your own victory on the track.

Players will need to plan their pit strategy to ensure the fastest response time, and then head into races against their friends as they work to master the world of circuit racing. Not much else is really known about Circuit Superstars at this point, though we’re sure that Square will reveal more about the upcoming racing title in the coming months.
