"We transformed Asphalt into the most readily-accessible racing franchise in the world.
“This is only just the beginning for Asphalt, and with the impending launch of Asphalt 9: Legends on the Xbox platform, we further commit to bring anyone, on whatever gaming platform, a racing experience beyond imagination."
