The upcoming Wii U and PS4 racing title from developers Zordix gives gamers a minute and a half look at some of the various, exotic locations that they travel to in Aqua Moto Racing Utopia.
The trailer keeps it fast and light, avoiding wasting any time at all and focusing entirely on the intensity and the diversity of the track line-up. You can see what the game looks like in action with the fast, furious and fluid trailer below from the Wii U version of the game.

As mentioned in the press release, the trailer covers two of the many locations present in Aqua Moto Racing Utopia, stating…
“The two environments are called Eastern Canals and Tropical Islands and present two differents challenges for the players. Eastern Canals are tight and will challenge you to some high precision driving. Tropical Islands will be a totally different experience with waves and challenging turn management.”
The game instantly reminds me of the classic Wave Race 64. It’s still one of the best jetski games out there. At the time it was competing head-to-head with Sony’s Jet Moto series, which was also completely and entirely fun in its own right. That’s not to mention that the original Jet Moto had one of the best video game soundtracks around back during the mid 1990s. The OST was absolutely fantastic, with a hint of “Miserlou” from Dick Dale and His Del Tones working as the theme, and a collection of crazy and challenging tracks to match. Just a refresher, here’s the theme song from Jet Moto.

I tend to doubt that Aqua Moto Racing Utopia is going to tap into any of the over-the-top ridiculousness of Jet Moto given that it’s most certainly paying homage to the Wave Race series. Nevertheless, the Unity-powered racing game is due out soon for Nintendo’s Wii U and Sony’s PS4. The GDC 2016 trailer above is basically let loose to hold you over while you wait for the indie game to land on digital e-tailer shelves for Nintendo and Sony’s home consoles.
