Need for Speed Nitro for the Nintendo Wii capitalizes on its stylized graphics, signing up tokidoki, Upper Playground and i am 8-bit to provide exclusive car skins and artwork for the game.

Nitro's animated style gets a bit more animated with the inclusion of custom car skins from celebrated brands tokidoki and Upper Playground and the video game culture celebration that is i am 8-bit. Not only have each contributed full vehicle skins to the game, they've also provided more that 140 brushes that players can use to add their own personal touch to their vehicles, from Lamborghini to Volkswagen.

"tokidoki, Upper Playground and i am 8-bit create art with distinct and cutting edge personalities," said Gil Rimmer, Art Director, EA Montreal. "With Need for Speed NITRO, we wanted to give players a variety of ways to customize their vehicles, introducing vivid and fresh urban art styles that have never been seen in racing games before."


Nitro keeps looking better and better. I've been captured by the unique art direction of the title since the first set of screenshots were released, and the contributions of these three lifestyle brands just make things that much sweeter.

Need for Speed Nitro for the Wii and DS is slated for release on November 17th.
