Along with the 19 official tracks of the current season, there will be 3 historical tracks, Laguna Seca 2013, Donington 2009 and Catalunya 2015, which will bring to mind loved memories for all MotoGP fans. Here is a quick preview of some of the legendary moments players can experience with MotoGP 19 :
Valentino’s ninth gem
The last race of the 201 4 MotoGP season was hard fought: the first 13 in qualifying were less than one second apart. The 122,000 spectators in the stands enjoyed themselves very much as Makoto Tamada, after 2 laps, already had a margin of 1 second. Although in third place, Valentino started badly, remaining in the sixth position at the end of the first lap. But then, with his formidable dexterity, he overcame his rivals, including Biaggi, taking the lead. Despite missing 15 laps at the end, it was unattainable: 9 GPs won on his debut with Yamaha, unbelievable.
Gibernau, King of France
Valentino Rossi had to compete with Spanish riders for most of his MotoGP career. The first of the series was Sete Gibernau, the best in 2003-2004 on a Honda. His specialty was an amazing start to the season, the track he did best was Le Mans. At the 2003 French GP, the duel with Rossi began after the red flag for rain: in the last 7 laps, Sete and Valentino continually overtook each other. A dramatic last lap with two overtakes each. The last move comes from Gibernau, who triumphed by just 0.165 seconds.
Along with the new game mode, Milestone also announced the official MotoGP 19 release date on the Nintendo Switch coming to the handheld console on June 27th. MotoGP 19 will be available on June 6 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC / Steam.
