It's ruffled a few feathers already from its soft launch, but racing fans should soon be able to make up their own minds about Asphalt 9: Legends as it's due to hit Android and iOS this summer.

The Gameloft team has just announced that it'll have a playable demo at E3 this year, making it the first time the game has been playable in North America.

While the developer hasn't said much more than that, we do know that the game will feature over more than fifty cars and seventy tracks, so there should be plenty for racing fans to enjoy.

One of the more controversial additions to the game is its new TouchDrive controls, which boils the racing experience down to simply swiping to choose the route you want to take on the course.

It's riled up hardcore fans of the series, though some of us think it might actually be the best way to play. Still, we won't know for sure until we properly get stuck into it this summer.
