Asphalt 9: Legends is a 2018 racing video game, developed by Gameloft Barcelona and published by Gameloft. Released on 25 July 2018, it is the ninth main installment in the Asphalt series. In comparison to previous entries, there are several new and improved features, such as a prestigious car lineup, new control schemes and race modes, and the reimplemented "shockwave nitro" from Asphalt 6: Adrenaline. The graphics are also considered significantly improved compared to its 2013 predecessor, Asphalt 8: Airborne.
The gameplay in Asphalt 9 is similar to Asphalt 8: Airborne, with noticeable differences in graphics and design. There are 48 cars for players featured in the game, many of which are from prestigious manufacturers. Like previous installments, each of the cars belong to a class progressively featuring higher performance and rarity: D, C, B, A, and S. All cars in the game now require "blueprints" to unlock and level up. A new car editor is in the game; upon unlocking the vehicle, the player can choose from a few official stock colors. Once the car has been leveled up, the player can create custom paint job colors to the body, rims, and brake calipers for most models. Some models also allow for carbon parts on the hood, trunk, and wings. There are also "clubs", where up to 20 players can collaboratively score points to achieve rewards.
