  • Inertial Drift

Set in a 90's retro future, Inertial Drift is an Arcade Racer with a devastatingly unique handling model and unbelievably satisfying twin-stick drift mechanics. Inertial Drift offers a whole new level of accessibility and challenge to the arcade racing genre - for a driving experience genuinely unlike anything you've played before.

The left stick is used for steering, while the right hand Drift Stick gives you independent control over your drift. Intuitive for new players and uniquely challenging for pros.

Each one of the 16 cars is a totally different beast, with unique characteristics to master. Get behind the wheel of Sport hatchbacks, Coupe's, Supercars & more!

Tear through neon city streets, race around rural temple complexes and hurtle down winding mountain passes.

Each racetrack is set within a bold and distinctive environment. Including vibrant cityscapes, coastal sunsets, gorgeous starry skies and snow-capped peaks.

With 7 race event types there is plenty of opportunity to perfect your craft! Get competitive in a mix of races, head-to-heads, time trials and style showdowns!

Think you've mastered the perfect drift? What better way to prove it. Take on other racers via local co-op and online multiplayer.
