For months now, there have been rumors that developer Electric Square was working in collaboration Microsoft Studios on a "Forza Kart" game. Unfortunately, those rumors turned out to be incorrect.
Miami Street is a free-to-play racing game meant for "all" Windows 10 devices, but don't get your hopes up about a Windows 10 Mobile renaissance here.
We've done some digging, and according to the app package metadata, it seems as though Miami Street is targeting Windows 10 PC and the "Andromeda OS" which is long-expected to be running on the folding Surface "Andromeda" tablet. Though only a PC version is available as of writing.
The description of the game reads as follows.
We've got some exciting news to share. We proudly announce Miami Street, a project that Electric Square has been working on with our partners at Microsoft Studios. Developed to be played on any Windows 10 device, Miami Street is a new kind of racing game, built for a broad audience who love easy to pick-up-and-play experiences. As we continue the development of Miami Street in the months ahead, we will begin releasing the game in limited regions for testing and player feedback.
While it's still a little rough around the edges, especially if you watch gameplay, the title shows a lot of promise. The description speaks of one-on-one competitive racing, and while it makes no mention of mobile devices, it makes absolutely no sense for Microsoft to be making a touch-based free to play racing game just for Windows 10 touch PCs. There's certainly something mysterious at play here, we'll have to wait and see.
