Long-rumoured but officially revealed only as recently as last week, Need for Speed Unbound promises to bring the series’ trademark street racing to new, ridiculous heights with a variety of anime-inspired visuals and effects.

Among things like its cast of cel-shaded characters, over-the-top visual effects feature heavily during races and give the game a unique look. It’s a look that many are excited about, but it’s also gaudy and busy enough that some have been wondering if they’ll be optional.

Need for Speed Unbound releases on December 2, 2022 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
