Asphalt 9: Legends is coming soon to Android

Asphalt 9: Legends Android

It feels like ages since Gameloft released Asphalt 8, the latest main entry in the massive racing franchise. That’s because it was – it was five years ago, in fact. Oh, and no, Street Storm didn’t do anything to ease the long wait.

Fear not though, because the franchise is coming back very soon. The next entry is Asphalt 9: Legends, and it’s out now in soft launch on iOS. Hopefully, we’ll see that soft launch extend to Android soon enough.

Asphalt 9: Legends

With a new entry comes new features, and this one doesn’t disappoint. Not only does it look insanely good, but it also has a completely overhauled control scheme.

Gameloft has entitled it “Touch Drive”, and claims that it allows you to focus on the racing rather than the steering. That actually doesn’t sound too great for us, because we actually like to play games. Should keep the casual racers happy.

Other than that there are about 50 licensed cars available and a full on career mode. That’s all we really know right now, but you can learn more by watching the official preview trailer above. You can also check out the App Store page if you live in the Philippines.

    Gentlemen start your wallets… sorry I mean engines.

      Too true.

    Looks cool, but I’m not happy about the short tracks and casual “Touch Drive”.

    • Armaan Modi

      Touch Drive can be turned off.

  • Miroslav Kramolinski

    I hope the tracks are long like in Asphalt 8, not like in NFS: No Limits! And hope it is 60fps this time, not the console bullwaste 30fps (it is obvious in asphalt 8 compared to e.g. Gear Club)

    • Armaan Modi

      Exactly (about the fps thing). Whenever I played it I felt that the gameplay wasn’t smooth. Now that you’ve told me about the fps cap,I know why it felt like that.

      • Miroslav Kramolinski

        Asphalt Xtreme felt like a little smoother (40-50ish), but still not 60 fps. I may be nitpicking here, but I am a PC gamer and there was a study or something saying that gamers do “adapt” to noticing higher frame rates with time

        • WhoaManWtF

          It is nothing about adapting, humans always have been able to see more than 60 fps.

        • Armaan Modi

          Oh.

        • Tuğberk Ağca

          Then play on PC

    Let’s hope hardware controller support is still supported. In the off-road version of Asphalt, that came after Asphalt 8 (and in their latest online fps esports game), hardware controller support was broken (probably due to the “usb keyboard as controller 1” bug).

    If not, I’ll be sticking with Asphalt 8.

    • Armaan Modi

      Modern Combat versus and Asphalt Xtreme. Do you have a problem with the names or what?

      • Ovo de Coruja

        OCD.

        • Armaan Modi

          maybe this is not OCD.

  • Armaan Modi

    This is one of the games I was really waiting for. I didn’t like the feel, the performance of Asphalt 8 so I never played it enough.I was waiting for a successor.I really like it from what I’ve seen from the gameplay videos (graphics and the interface).Also a big improvement is expected as it’s been so long.I just hope that it will run well on my phone with the highest settings.

    This is the best game I have played so far in Asphalt series! And I have created a separate blog to teach the racing enthusiasts about this game here: http://asphalt9legends.org/ More posts would be updated very soon as I am not getting enough time to write the guides. Once the game is launched, there will be full of tips and tricks to clear the stages and unlock your favorite cars!
