What is Asphalt 9: Legends?
Asphalt 9: Legends for Nintendo Switch launched on October 8 as a free-to-download arcade racer with all of the arcade fun and gameplay modes of the original mobile release, including local split-screen and offline game modes, 8-player online play, multiple control options including the innovative Touchdrive and impressive tracks through the robust single-player campaign.

There will be future updates with new content, the same as the PC and Mobile version, and if you want a “head-start” you can also buy two different car starter packs.
