Capcom has announced that Monumental Games' new MotoGP title is called MotoGP 09/10. Bit presumptuous.
It's due out next March on PS3 and Xbox 360 and features all the bikes, riders and tracks from the 2009 championship, with the promise of free data updates as the 2010 championship unfolds.
The Career mode is going to have races, obviously, but also management elements, so you can hire and fire engineers, team managers and press officers.
Beyond that Capcom is promising three other gameplay modes, one of which, Arcade, sets challenges along the way that encourage players to earn and steal points from one another. Capcom's press release also mentions "rewards" for riding style as well as race wins.
"Historically MotoGP videogames have been released toward the end of the GP season, but with this latest addition to the series we wanted MotoGP and racing fans to have the most up to date content as soon as possible," said Capcom's Michael Pattison.
Screenshots and videos were not immediately available but they'll probably have lots of leather and cogs in them and go vrrrrneeeerrrrroooooommmmm, if not wake you up at 8am on Saturday.
