Fatal Inertia screens zoom by

Friday 22 September 2006
We've yet to get fully acquainted with Fatal Intertia - the hovercraft-racing speedfest that melds Wipeout-style neon-trailing speedsters with huge, incredible racetracks that echo the podracing moments from Star Wars Episode One - but from these images the game looks like a high-speed blast, where overtaking can involve piloting your vehicle right underneath a rival's craft.

And while these screens look distinctly like pre-set renders (that is, not proper in-game action snapshots) the breathtaking track environments and rapid-looking hovercraft at least hint at a worthy challenger to Wipeout's zero-gravity action. We'll be feeling out the true gameplay details for Fatal Inertia over this weekend's Tokyo Game Show, so stay close for updates.
