Major publisher and developer THQ has announced Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights, the next multi-platform franchise installment from internal THQ UK studio Juice Games, adding a license from the Hot Import Nights U.S. custom car shows. Juiced 2: HIN is expected to make its next-generation debut on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but will also be available for the PlayStation 2, PSP, Nintendo DS and Windows PC this 'Fall'. According to the publisher, the title "allows players to test their skills at live street racing events against a back-drop of DJs, fashion, models and musicians", and new features include drift or powersliding races and “Driver DNA” that tracks gamers’ personal driving traits. These profiles, along with the profiles of select celebrities, will be available for download across all online gaming systems. The franchise is an important one for THQ because street racing titles have become increasingly popular in recent years - in Electronic Arts' latest financial results, the company reported that rival Need for Speed Carbon sold over eight million copies in the quarter and was a top-five title in North America and Europe. “Juiced 2: HIN introduces a thrilling new drifting component and lets players personalize their experience both on and offline with ultra realistic Driver DNA,” said Colin Bell, general manager, Juice Games. “In addition to a ton of exciting new features, we’ve significantly expanded the rewarding driving experience, track choice and customization our fans have come to expect.”
