Codemasters has officially announced that a new Micro Machines game is currently in development for PS2, PSP, PC and Nintendo DS.
Micro Machines v4 is being developed by Supersonic Software, who were responsible for various other MM games as well as the Mashed series.
Expect hundreds of unique vehicles, including sports cars, street racers, stock cars 4x4s, beach buggies, lowriders and muscle cars. They all handle and perform differently, and there are loads of weapons and power-ups to collect - including the car-mounted giant hammer.
MM fans will recognise some classic tracks from earlier instalments in the series, such as the breakfast table, kitchen, pool table and bath. There's also a huge bunch of new tracks - you can race across the roofs of houses, zoom through sewers, and cruise round a supermarket and a museum. There's also a farm "with a danger-packed chicken coop." Presumably they've all got bird flu.
Micro Machines v4 is out this summer.
