Firemint Announced Real Racing 2 Coming To iPhone Soon!

I wish I had any details on this. Any details at all. But, instead, all I have is the following image which Firemint sent us mere moments ago announcing Real Racing 2:

We loved the original Real Racing, and really, it’s hard to imagine what they could even be including in its sequel. My personal list of things I hope to see include a more fleshed our career mode, car customization similar to Gran Turismo, and even more tracks. More details are coming “soon” from Firemint. How soon is anyone’s guess, but my money is on Real Racing 2 being a holiday release. If you’d like to check out our previous post about Real Racing HD coming to the iPad, click here.

We’ll have to wait and see!
