Firemonkeys Announces Real Racing 3 For iPhone And iPad; Releases First Trailer

Last month, EA had announced that it was consolidating its two biggest mobile studios based in Melbourne, Australia – Firemint makers of popular iOS games such as Flight Control, Real Racing, which it had acquired last year, and Iron Monkey – developers of EA games such as Mass Effect Infiltrator and Dead Space, to form Firemonkeys.

The newly formed studio have announced the next iteration of the popular Real Racing series – Real Racing 3 at EA’s summer conference held yesterday.

Here’s what you can expect in Real Racing 3:

Featuring all-new licensed tracks and a robust lineup of licensed cars from all-new manufacturers, Real Racing 3 is set to deliver a rich, next-gen racing experience with the most beautiful and authentic circuit racing available on mobile devices.

Gamers will enjoy graphics that have been meticulously hand crafted to produce photorealistic visuals as they zoom around in cars from manufacturers like Porsche, Dodge and Audi.

For the first time in the series, Real Racing 3 will also include a full lineup of real world tracks from the top names around the world including Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Silverstone. With a 22 car grid, gamers will be able to pit themselves against 21 other drivers in one race.

Fans can experience the glory of championship racing on real tracks recreating the full race-day pressure and environment in a game that harnesses the full power of mobile hardware to produce a beautiful racing environment.

They have also released the first trailer of Real Racing 3, which we’ve embedded below:

It will be released in 2012, but there is no release date currently.
It looks quite stunning. We can’t wait to play it on our iPad 3. Let us know what you think in the comments.
