Need for Speed Nitro is the latest installment in the franchise and is exclusive to Nintendo systems. It is part of a new initiative to split the Need for Speed franchise into three genres: arcade, simulation, and MMO. Nitro will be the first entry in the arcade genre.
Nitro is designed to attract new fans to the franchise, which has recently been declining in sales. One way in which it varies from the older Need for Speed games is through a new, graffiti-style art direction. For example, the environment will change color to match the racer in first place.
