As seen at GameSpot and Game Planets, the first images of MotoGP’07 have been released. It seems the acclaimed racing series that called the Xbox home before moving to the 360 in MotoGP’06 will be making another annual trip to the system. ’06 looked amazing and was fun to play, but in many ways just felt like a prettier version of the previous installment. Will ’07 bring some engine enhancements this time in addition to the typical rider and bike updates?
UPDATE: We’ve got the official release thanks to Gaming Nexus, which includes the following bits of info on the new title, apparently due sometime in the Fall:
MotoGP ’07 is the definitive next-generation motorcycle racing title, delivering the most authentic MotoGP racing experience to date. Featuring life-like visuals, complete 2007 rider and team data, new 800cc MotoGP bikes and the newly-announced Misano event, the game’s GP mode will be more robust than ever before. The title will also feature interactive track-side crowds, intense on-line tournament features, on-line “pink-slip” racing, a revamped Extreme mode and significantly more bike and player customization options.
