Here’s a list of features from Ultimate Studio:
– Competitive time trial racing action

– Live global leaderboard
– Race against real player ghosts
– Compete to set world record times
– Dynamic racing – full car control, power sliding, boosting
– Variable track elements – jumps, loops, magnets
– Over 150 exciting tracks
We managed to get hands-on with the game over the past few days and Hot Lap League proves itself to be a formidable racing game for the Switch. The controls are tight and drifting around corners feels intuitive and natural. Visually, it’s pretty basic stuff, but it doesn’t necessarily need to boast particularly high-end graphics given the context of the races. As such, the game runs very well for the most part, aided by the distinct lack of CPU opponents other than the ghost car.
As a nice little bonus, the Deluxe Edition release for Switch comes with an additional four bonus cars unlocked and ready to race.
