New Anki toys truck into stores
Limited edition X52 ICE Supertrucks for Anki Overdrive launch at Smyths Toys Superstores
Anki is taking its hit battle-racing game Anki Overdrive to the next level with the forthcoming introduction of robotic Supertrucks this October.
Called Freewheel, X52 and X52 ICE, the limited edition toys will be stocked exclusively in the UK and Republic of Ireland at Smyths Toys Superstores. At nearly triple the size of Anki Overdrive Supercars, the new battle rigs use their bulk, weapons and new control system to dominate on the track.
More than just oversized vehicles, the Supertrucks also introduce powerful new weapons and exciting game modes that will put players’ skills to the test. X52 and X52 ICE are armed with an exclusive Pulse Ram, which will blast opponents off the track. Freewheel’s Gravity Trap will disable opponents’ Supercars, causing them to lose all control. The new vehicles were designed to make gameplay more robust and set the stage for the ultimate true test of skill, pitting size and strength against speed and agility.
Aside from commanding Supertrucks in any of Anki Overdrive’s open-play game modes, the new additions come armed with their own exclusive game mode – Takeover. Players start each match in their chosen Supercar but anyone that can break through a Supertruck’s defenses will then take control of the vehicle to wreak havoc on their opponents until another player disables them and takes command of the big rig.
Anki Overdrive Supertrucks were created by Hollywood car designer Harald Belker, whose graphically bold vision and style for futuristic vehicle design has been seen in films such as Minority Report (2002), TRON: Legacy (2010), and Total Recall (2012).
Freewheel and X52 will be available from October.
