We rated the console version of F1 2011 a solid 8/10 – it wasn’t as impressive as last year’s outing, but it’s still a great racer.
This month, however, sees the 3DS version released – the first footage of which is below.
The 3DS version is being handled by racing stalwarts Sumo Digital, and will be fully licensed with all the official teams, drivers and circuits.
There’s also a new ‘Challenge mode’ which the PR blurb says is “perfect for portable racing”, with a wide range of objectives including checkpoint, gate and overtaking challenges.
Multiplayer also features, with four player GP races, head-to-head time trials and a two player co-op career, just like its big brothers.
