It's been stated that this game will take the series "to the next level", but I'm not buying it just yet since they used similar words to describe last year's game. I have many doubts over the Wii version's ability to turn out good given what we've already seen. However, it is interesting to note that the temporary boxart for the game shows a Wi-Fi symbol, but I'm not taking that as a confirmation of online play just yet -- and neither should you. At this point, we have no way of knowing whether or not the 3DS version will feature online play, but if it does, it will be a big selling point for sure.
I'm looking forward to seeing how the game compares with the likes of Ridge Racer 3D, so to that end, I'll remain vigilant this week in searching for videos of this new project. And hopefully I'll have more positive things to say about The Run in the future.
