Fast & Furious Takedown Prepares to Drift Onto Mobile Devices
Universal Games and Digital Platforms Collaborates with Indie Developer, SMG Studio, on New High-Speed Adventure Launching Soon
Universal City, Calif., Nov. 13, 2018 – Universal Games and Digital Platforms, in partnership with SMG Studio, today announced a new entry in the Fast & Furious universe, Fast & Furious Takedown. Available now for pre-registration and launching soon, Fast & Furious Takedown is an action arcade game for mobile devices that lets players of all skill levels master one-thumb controls to drift through missions, take the wheel of more than 60 licensed cars and fill their dream garage with custom vehicles.
The game stays true to one of Universal Pictures’ most popular and enduring movie franchises of all time by featuring legendary cars from the films, such as Dom’s Dodge Charger, Hobbs’ truck and Shaw’s Flip Car. Additionally, familiar characters from the films will guide players through challenging missions, epic stunts, fierce chopper pursuits, and more. Players will be able to race against other drivers from around the world to dominate the Versus Leagues.
“Fast & Furious Takedown is an action-packed adventure that evokes what makes Fast & Furious such an unforgettable and enduring franchise,” said Chris Heatherly, Executive Vice President of Games and Digital Platforms, Universal Brand Development. “We wanted to deliver a quintessential Fast & Furious experience – one filled with the over-the-top stunts and thrills that fans love from the movies, while being fun, easy to master and appealing to a wide range of fans.”
Fast & Furious Takedown is being developed by SMG Studio, one of the most successful independent game studios in Australia and the team behind the No. 1 thumb-based drifting game, Thumb Drift. SMG Studio joins a growing list of talented development and publishing partners with which Universal Games and Digital Platforms has collaborated. Universal announced last year that it would expand its self-publishing business and take a more active role in the development, marketing and distribution of games based on NBCUniversal properties. Fast & Furious Takedown is the first self-published mobile game from the Universal Games and Digital Platforms team, and they will continue to build its licensed games portfolio and introduce new experiences onto additional platforms.
“Our vision for Fast & Furious Takedown was to create a true-to-property game that leverages our team’s expertise with the unique one-touch control game mechanic,” said Ashley Ringrose, Studio Head, SMG Studio. “As fans of the Fast & Furious films ourselves, we can’t wait to turn the wheel over to other fans so they can take the game out for a spin.”
