Go under the hood of Cars 2: The Video Game with our developer diary video series! In this episode, Avalanche Software discusses the differences between “racing” and “combat racing.” Check out the video after the jump.

Here’s the video:

Inspired by the upcoming Disney Pixar animated film, Cars 2: The Video Game lets players jump into the Cars 2 universe with some of their favorite Cars personalities in exotic locations around the globe.  Continuing the storyline from the upcoming film, players can choose to play as Mater and Lightning McQueen, as well as some brand new characters, as they train in the international training center – CHROME (Command Headquarters for Recon Operations and Motorized Espionage) to become world-class spies.

They’ll take on dangerous missions, compete to become the fastest racecar in the world, or use their spy skills in exciting, action-packed combat racing and battle arenas. Players can race against friends and family in either single or multiplayer modes with up to four players to unlock challenging new tracks, characters, events and thrilling spy missions.

The DS version will also include exclusive global locations not seen in the film.  Cars 2: The Video Game will be available on PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, Wii™, Nintendo DS™, and PC/MAC this June.
