EA subsidiary Chillingo has announced it will be bringing classic top-down racing series Micro Machinesto mobile as part of its ongoing partnership with Codemasters.
Last appearing in 2006, the Micro Machines series sees players racing toy cars around everyday environments and dealing with hazards such as bathtubs and knives.
“The original Micro Machines game from the 90’s pioneered the multiplayer, competitive experience and we can’t wait to resurrect those same thrills on today’s mobile devices," said Ed Rumley, General Manager at Chillingo.
“Working with Chillingo has been extremely beneficial in developing this much loved game,” said Chris Gray, Executive Producer at Codemasters.
“Our teams are collaborating closely to ensure Micro Machines returns as the definitive multiplayer combat racing game, with more games modes and ways of playing to gain new fans around the world.”
The Chillingo/Codemasters partnership has already produced Battle Decks, a collectible card game that was something of a departure for Codemasters.
The new Micro Machines game is expected to launch by the end of 2015 on iOS.
