It would appear like Need for Speed Unbound was released early because a Japanese merchant has an internet website displaying screenshots from the upcoming installment in the popular racing series along with a release date for the game. It appears that Need for Speed Unbound will be released on December 2, which is to a previous leak that claimed the same date.

Tomorrow, at 8 a.m. PT, 11 a.m. ET, and at 4 p.m. BST, Electronic Arts will officially reveal the new Need for Speed in a trailer that will last approximately 90 seconds. On the other hand, today’s leak originates from the Japanese shop Neowing and reveals some additional screenshots from the game (via Gematsu). In addition, the only game that is listed as compatible with the PS5 is Need for Speed Unbound. Previous leaks stated that the game would only be available on the currently available generation of consoles and for PC.

The pictures show the game’s anime-influenced visual design, which features the stylized art style associated with the Japanese-originated aesthetic. On the other hand, the game’s presentation is bold and colorful, keeping with the contemporary Need for Speed approach.

This may be one of the most leaked Needs for Speed announcements in the series’ history, but fans shouldn’t lose hope: the formal announcement will take place tomorrow, and they’ll finally get to see the game in action. Even though the anime’s visual style was already known, these displays provide a better picture of how the game would look in the future.

Need for Speed Unbound will likely debut on current-generation gaming platforms and the personal computer on December 2. Even while it may not be official just yet, all of the signs point in that direction. We will have to wait until EA’s actual announcement to officially validate all of this information.
