It’s been a few years since there has been a video game featuring Indy racing, but Destineer Studios will be having one out later this year. One catch – it won’t be current drivers and tracks. Oh no, my friends. Instead it’s gonna be IMS only and it will feature only cars and drivers from 1961 to 1971. That’s right - Novi versus Turbine, baby!

Indianapolis 500 Legends is being designed exclusively for Nintendo systems, which includes the Wii. For those of you who may not know much about video games, the Wii (pronounced, as Mr Judd says, “Wee”) is currently the hottest selling system on the market due largely to the Wii-mote, which is a more like a magic wand instead of a button mashing device. In other words, you won’t get Carpal Tunnel Syndrome using the thing.

Although you might get sore using the thing like a hammer to pound off the lugnuts during pitstops. I'm not joking, people - that's in the game.

But who cares about soreness when you get to race AJ, Mario and Parnelli around the Brickyard? Here’s a nearly 7-minute preview of the game, which is due to be released in October, which sounds like perfect timing to help us get through the winter absence of ICS racing.
