The last Speed Racer video game based on the iconic television show came out back in 1998 for Sony’s PlayStation. Since then, we haven’t had a game that truly pays homage to the series that brought us those classic out-of-sync voice-overs.

Social Games International and Speed Racer Enterprises hopes to change that and have partnered to launch a mobile game based on series.

Speed Racer: The Beginning is scheduled for release in April and will give players a side-scrolling racing game putting them behind the wheel of the Mach 5. Each race is full of challenges to overcome but will also come with power-ups, boosts, and “Trixie helicopter rides.” Fans of the show will also appreciate authentic video clips before and after each race.

Speed Racer: The Beginning will be available on all iOS devices next month. Until then, you can visit the game’s Facebook page to learn more about the game.

    ACTUALLLYYYY, there was a game called Speed Racer: The Videogame for the Wii that coincided with the release of the 2008 movie. My friends got it for me as a joke, ’cause they knew I liked the movie… But I actually ended up liking it quite a bit. It’s not SUPER polished, but I think it’s actually a good game. Hopefully this new one will be better!
