It’s funny how some things come full circle – like the legacy of Turbo Kid.
Initially released in 2015, the film has become a cult classic in a short amount of time. It focuses on a scavenger who finds himself going against hostile forces, with only a BMX bike and a mysterious girl named Apple to help him.
The film’s got a notable cast, including good ol’ Michael Ironside, hamming it up as Zeus. But what’s even more impressive is that it’s making a comeback – and not in the way that you might expect.
A Canadian development team by the name of Outerminds has announced that it’s working on a video game adaptation of Turbo Kid, set to release sometime in 2022. As you can see from the teaser trailer below, it offers up a great deal of BMX riding and action-packed combat, as well as a structure straight out of Metroidvania. Oh, and of course there’s bloodshed, because, hey, it’s Turbo Kid, right?
That said, it is going to be a little while before the legacy kicks back into high gear, as the game isn’t set for release until sometime in 2022. Platforms also haven’t been revealed just yet, but we should know more soon enough.
So keep on the lookout. Oh, and if you haven’t seen Turbo Kid just yet, you should fix that. It’s available now on-demand, as well as on Blu-Ray. Check out the movie trailer below.
