Dang, that’s a lot of nostalgia all packed into one list. I’m pretty sure that I had that Peanuts car in my Hot Wheels collection at some point when I was younger.

We recently got a chance to get some hands-on impressions of this Hot Wheels Unleashed, and Jordan came away impressed by its offering. Its boost-heavy, fast and punchy, and has a custom Track Editor, so you can build those massive looping Hot Wheels tracks of your dreams if you want.

Hot Wheels Unleashed is currently slated to arrive on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam on Sept. 30, 2021.
