Motorstorm RC hits US next month

Evolution's PS3/Vita racer spends two weeks crossing the Atlantic

Sony has confirmed that Motorstorm RC will launch in US on March 6 for $9.99.


The Vita/PS3 racer launched in EU today alongside Sony's new handheld, but will seemingly spend two weeks in transit to America.

In Europe, players who buy either version of the game will be able to download the other version at no extra charge, but Sony's plans for the US will apparently differ slightly.

"The 'buy one, get one free' applies for only for the European territories - we will provide more details closer to launch regarding our distribution plans, but rest assured that North American consumers will get both for $9.99," said game director Paul Rustchynsky on the US PS Blog.

Motorstorm RC has players control little radio controlled cars in fast off-road races.

The game packs eight vehicle classes and the usual variety of tricky environments the series is known for, along with online play and the ability to carry over saved progress between the PS3 and the Vita versions.

It promises four locations containing 16 all new tracks, four-player split-screen play on PS3, and what's really cool is you'll only need to buy the game once and you'll get both the PS3 and Vita versions.
