Real Racing 3 set to bring console like visuals to your iPhone and iPad

Firemonkey has revealed some screenshots and a teaser video from its upcoming third episode of the ever popular Real Racing series of games for the iPhone and iPad and it looks amazing. The new game, if the screenshots and video are anything to go by, looks like the best version to date and the graphics look simply stunning.

The Real Racing series was developed by Firemint in 2009 and the recently announced Firemonkeys team is excited to unveil a few features from the newest iteration of the series. 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.

The only thing we know so far is that Real Racing 3 is scheduled to hit the App Store later this year. I wouldn’t be that surprised if it were shown off on-stage at next month’s iPhone 5 event. With visuals that look as good as they do in the trailer it would be a no brainer to show off on the new iPhone’s larger display.

  • You obviously don't play games on consoles if you call this "console-like" graphics. Nevertheless, very impressive for a mobile device but far from console quality.
  • you are in denial..
  • In denial? Why exactly would I be in denial? I own an iPad 3 so it's not like I'm not going to play it but these are simply not console graphics. As I said, very impressive for mobile graphics but play some PS3 or XBOX 360 and you'll quickly realise these graphics are a generation behind. Have a look at Gran Turismo 5 or Forza 4 and then you'll get an idea of what console graphics are.
  • Behind by a few years, not a generation though as that would be like ps3 graphics. The graphics are up there with some PS3/xbox games though.
  • It's definitely not in this generation. More like PS2+HD graphics. Some effects are just too outdated to be compared to this generation.
  • Yep. Denial. That looked amazing.
  • You guys just don't game on consoles so I don't blame you for not knowing the difference ;) Anyway, I'm gonna stop this stupid discussion and enjoy the great graphics (for a mobile device) of this game on my iPad 3 and future iPhone 5 :)
  • Well im starting it back up again , i play on all consoles and PC an its definitly like an early Xbox 360 game for sure, if you dont beleave me fine haha but i know more shit than you do little kid ;P
  • Nice Porsche models. Would like to see what other cars are in the game.
  • Damn, this is very impressive... Can't wait to see it on my iPad 3.
