Smyths Toys Superstores has secured an exclusive Anki Overdrive Supercar.

The limited edition X52 ICE will be stocked exclusively in the UK and Republic of Ireland at Smyths Toys Superstores while supplies last. At nearly triple the size of other Anki Overdrive Supercars, the new battle rigs use their bulk, weapons and new control system to dominate on the track.

The line of Anki Overdrive Supertrucks, created by Hollywood car designer Harald Belker, will launch from October 12th with Freewheel, X52 and the X52 ICE.

The new vehicles were designed to make gameplay more robust, as the new range comes with its own exclusive game mode called Takeover.

Takeover sees players start each match in their chosen Supercar but anyone that can break through a Supertruck’s defenses will then take control of the vehicle to wreak havoc on their opponents until another player disables them and takes command of the big rig.
