Psyonix Studios have today announced their upcoming PLAYSTATION Network title, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars… yes it is a long name.

The game will feature vehicles with acrobatic physics, allowing you to roll, fip, jump, dodge or spin. The game will also feature extensive statistical tracking, rankings, and rewards for individuals and teams.

For tropy-whores (we couldn’t think of a nicer name), the game will feature the trophy system as well as YouTube uploading.

“It takes a pretty special game to carry such a lengthy title and be able to hold its head high amongst games with much shorter names,” commented Dave Hagewood, Director of Development at Psyonix Studios. “Thankfully, we don’t have to worry about fitting this title on a package.”

The game should hit the PLAYSTATION Network this fall. Hit the jump for the press release and screenshots. [GALLERY]
