Last month, more of Mattel's iconic Hot Wheels rides started to make appearances in Drive Ahead! - the action-packed gladiator-style car-battling mobile game. Downloaded over 100 million times, Drive Ahead! is available for iOS and Android devices and turns players into arena superstars, where they go to battle with off-road vehicles, garbage trucks, racing cars and more. Now the game is getting infused with more Hot Wheels action on a regular basis with Hot Wheels Wednesdays - a brand-new weekly event introducing collectible new Hot Wheels cars into the Drive Ahead! arena. During Hot Wheels Wednesday, players battle over 24 thrilling hours to beat the boss and fight for the chance to win exclusive Hot Wheels die-cast cars. This brand new feature introduces an exciting new way to play and progress in Drive Ahead! Use Hot Tickets to play events, win Hot Bolts to craft cars or purchase exclusive Hot Wheels items. During the October update (issued just before Halloween), players also got their first taste of the new Nemesis Arenas that will be introduced each month, and these are locations familiar to many kids... because they're based on real-world Hot Wheels City toys! Now, Drive Ahead! and Hot Wheels have teamed-up with The Rock Father™ to give you a chance to win the actual Spider Park Attack Play Set - the inspiration for the first new Nemesis Arena in Drive Ahead!

When the Nintendo Labo Kits were first introduced earlier this year their tagline was “Make. Play. Discover”. Now, with the new Labo Vehicle Kit coming out on September 24th, these words will take on new meaning.
