Cars 2 released earlier this year alongside the theatrical release of the film. Now that it’s being released for home audiences, apparently another game is in order. Yes, it may have missed the boat the first time, but this is not the Cars 2 that released in June. At least, it is in a few ways. Using StreetPass, you can trade and unlock a few character skins.

Disney Interactive Studios today announced that Disney•Pixar’s Cars 2: The Video Game is now available for the Nintendo 3DS™ handheld system. Following the multi-platform release of the critically acclaimed console versions earlier this year, the game joins the latest line of offerings in the beloved franchise. From a spy-driven plotline to international locales and intense racing adventures, the game allows fans to play as their favorite characters including Lightning McQueen, Mater the tow truck, Finn McMissile and others, as they navigate through adventures within C.H.R.O.M.E. (Command Headquarters for Recon Operations and Motorized Espionage).
“This latest video game in the Cars franchise will be a real treat for fans and gamers,” said Javier Ferreira, Senior Vice President of Publishing, Disney Interactive Media Group. “Bringing the world of Cars to the Nintendo 3DS for the first time will deliver a heightened feeling of space and depth just in time for the holidays.”
Cars 2: The Video Game for Nintendo 3DS will offer the very best in eye-popping gameplay through the system’s stereoscopic 3D display. The game will take advantage of StreetPass™ communication, allowing players to unlock and share new skins. Multiplayer action with up to four players will also be available.
