Asphalt 9: Legends is coming to Android! Finally! Ever since Gameloft released Asphalt 8: Airborne back in August 2013 (wow that’s long), we’ve been wondering what ever happened to the series. To be fair, Gameloft did release Asphalt Street Storm which focuses on multiplayer drag racing; but to be honest, we love to perform stunts and bump players to crash and burn (muahaha).
Just like the previous of the series, Asphalt 9: Legends will have players in control of which lanes to go, Nitro ignition and stunts. However players can still steer the car a little by tapping either side of the screen but will have no worries on pressing the gas pedal. The car will turn on its own during a corners and players can tap on the bottom left icon to perform a drift.
For those who didn’t know, Asphalt 9: Legends has already been soft-launched in the Philippines but only for the iOS. Sadly, Android wasn’t included in the soft-launch along with other countries as well but good news is, the game is and will be coming to Android soon!
Below’s a description and features of the game taken from the App Store:
