Kylotonn the developer of TT Isle of Mann – Ride On The Edge 2 is clearly stepping up their game with this years release by bringing on some real world talent to help sculpt and shape this new game, into something more than just an arcade racer but a simulation.
They naturally turned to the talents of Davey Todd, an up and coming rider who is set to become one of the best and Julien Toniutti, who is one of the fastest French riders on the Isle of Mann circuit.
Davey Todd is a young English rider who specialises in road racing and already has an impressive trophy haul at only 23 years old. In 2018, while preparing for his first Isle of Man TT, Davey decided to practise on his brother’s console for two months so he could perfect his knowledge of the iconic 60km circuit. As a result, he was ranked 2nd in the game’s worldwide leaderboards and became the second fastest newcomer of all time in the real race. In 2019 he proved his riding talents in his second appearance at the TT by finishing in the top 8 in all categories and achieving 6th place in the Senior Race.
Julien Toniutti collaborated on the game’s production by sharing his experience and impressions with the developers to help them create a strikingly realistic simulation and optimise all aspects of the riding physics.
The following video goes into detail about the new aspects of the game, plus gameplay and progression. While it’s developed to be a video game which is entertaining, the focus on improving the physics and handling to be as real as possible will surley be welcomed by road racing fans and real world competitors alike.
