Electronic Arts will release Need for Speed Underground, the next chapter in its landmark Need for Speed™ franchise, this fall under the EA GAMES brand.

Featuring a thrilling sense of speed created by a team led by an OSCAR®-nominated special effects expert, Need for Speed Underground delivers an authentic look at the gritty world of underground street racing. The game offers 20 of the most sought-after tuner cars from manufacturers including Mitsubishi Motors, Subaru®, and Toyota™. Gamers will be able to upgrade nearly every aspect of their car's appearance and performance with hundreds of after-market parts from more than 50 real-world manufacturers, including HKS®, Sparco®, NOS ®, and more.

Need for Speed Underground is slated to ship for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, Xbox™ videogame console from Microsoft, Nintendo GameCube™, Game Boy® Advance, and PC CD-ROM. The game is being developed by EA Black Box.
