Eden Games partners with Microids to build on success of Gear.Club Unlimited
TORONTO, Aug. 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Millennial Esports Corp. (“Millennial” or the “Company”, TSX VENTURE: GAME, OTCQB: MLLLF) is pleased to announce that Eden Games, in partnership with Microids, will release Gear.Club Unlimited 2 exclusively for Nintendo Switch, the leading game console for Nintendo Co. Ltd. Although the Company has not yet provided a release date, it is expected that Gear.Club Unlimited 2 will be available before the end of 2018. In December 2017, Eden Games took the Nintendo world by storm with the release of Gear.Club Unlimited, the most successful racing game on the Nintendo Switch.
“Our relationship with Nintendo has enabled us to get Gear.Club, one of the world’s leading mobile games, in the hands of hundreds of thousands of Nintendo console fans, having proved the most popular racing game for Switch,” said Millennial Esports CEO, Stephen Shoemaker. “All credit to David Nadal and the talented team at Eden for implementing exciting new features such as a local multiplayer mode with a four-way split screen, that will win even more new fans for both Gear.Club and Millennial Esports.”
In Gear.Club Unlimited 2 racers will be able to power through almost 3,000 km of roads – through nature parks, on mountainsides, in the middle of the desert, and along a gorgeous coastline. As fans of Eden have come to expect, the game features more than 50 licensed cars from the world’s most famous manufacturers, including the Porsche 718 Boxster, McLaren 720, 918 Spyder, 911 GT2RS, Lotus 3-Eleven and Dodge Viper, which is produced by the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV. Players can manage and personalize their garage, as well as their racing cars, which can be visually customized through paint and bodywork and performance-tuned to enhance the driving experience.
Gear.Club 2 Unlimited offers more than 250 all new races, including championships, challenges and a story mode where racers can save the family team from bankruptcy by taking on charismatic riders from across the globe. Players can also create and manage their own club, recruiting the best drivers that cross their path and challenging rival clubs from around the world to see their crew’s name appear at the top of the leaderboard.
“With the success of Gear.Club Unlimited for Switch and the passionate response it got from fans of our games and of Nintendo, we couldn’t wait to get started on this new and improved version,” said Eden Games CEO, David Nadal. “We’ve had almost as much fun working with Microids and Nintendo as racers will have once they get their hands on Gear.Club Unlimited 2.”
As previously announced by Millennial Esports, Eden Games is also partnering with Codemasters on the world’s first Formula 1-branded mobile racing game, which is expected to be released in the fall. Simultaneously, Eden is developing Gear.Club Live, a slimmed down version of the leading mobile game that has been designed to facilitate in-race competitions for both cash prizes and prizes fulfilled through the Amazon GameOn platform.
