Bethesda Softworks is set to publish Wheelspin, the latest game from developer Archer Maclean's Awesome Play studio, in Europe this fall. Industry veteran MacLean is known for the Jimmy White Snooker and Pool games, plus numerous classic titles including International Karate and its sequel, IK+. His Awesome Play studio developed PSP launch title Mercury, and now Wii title Wheelspin becomes his latest property. Wheelspin is a futuristic racing title with three different modes: solo racing, plus multiplayer race and battle modes. Players race up to seven other cars across various "interplanetary" tracks, and in addition to supporting a variety of Wii control schemes, it'll also support use of a force feedback wheel. "Wheelspin was designed exclusively for the Wii - with the intention of pushing the hardware further than any other Wii racing game to date," said Maclean. "You have to see the graphics moving to believe it's coming out of a Wii - the visuals rush past smoothly at 60 FPS all in widescreen 480P mode. "We are very pleased to be working with [ZeniMax Europe managing director Sean Brennan] and his team at Bethesda, many of whom have been involved with my previous titles going back 20 years."
