Acclaim’s 1999 R/C racing classic, Re-Volt, is coming to iOS this month. The title has been ported by development studio Big Bit Ltd, which is run by Nick Baynes, one of the original creators of the game, who has been teasing its release on Twitter.
In reply to a tweet about favored Sega Dreamcast titles, Baynes wrote: “Anyone that says Re-Volt should watch the App Store over the next couple of weeks….”
In addition to this, Big Bit currently has what appears to be Re-Volt’s iOS logo on its website, with a “coming soon” label over the top of it.
It’s unclear at this point what the iOS title will actually bring. There’s a chance Big Bit could have taken the original and added some new features and improvements, or it could have just ported the entire game in its original form. I suppose we’ll find out for certain in the coming weeks.
