|Warning! KTM X-Bow GTX upgrade trap [Edit]|
Caution: The new KTM X-Bow GTX has hybrid upgrades! The car requires both Uncommon Pro Kit Cards and Kit Cards: 55 of each Uncommon Part Card, 60 Uncommon Tech, 160 KTM X-Bow GTX Kits and 2,232,000 Fusion Coins; see KTM X-Bow GTX (upgrades).
Players who bought the Premium Pass are strongly advised NOT to fuse the Uncommon Pro Kit Cards that are rewarded for the first tiers!

|Gharial Boosted Box with reduced price and changed description [Edit]|
The price for the Gharial's Boosted Box has been reduced to 125 Tokens during the special offer that started yesterday. The box description has changed, too. Instead of "Guarantees at least 3 Gharial Blueprints every 5 openings!", the description now reads "Gold Box with a 5x better change of getting the Garial." It is uncertain if this has real effects on the drop rate of Gharial Blueprints. In test buys, the boxes granted 0 to 5 Gharial Blueprints.
|New Asphalt 8 event: Ferrari 599XX Evo Festival [Edit]|
The Ferrari 599XX Evo Festival has been launched. It is of the same type as the Ferrari 488 Challenge Evo Festival which means that for non-premium players, the Festival car is only granted at tier 15. It can be expected that the Festival Coins obtained from quests are sufficient to reach tier 15, but that's it—no extras without paying real money.
|Asphalt Nitro 2 announced [Edit]|
That's interesting news for Asphalt Nitro fans, and perhaps also for Asphalt 9 players with less powerful devices: Gameloft's Business Solutions page announces that "Asphalt Nitro 2 Crosses the Finish Line"! According to the announcement, the game also features Asphalt 9's TouchDrive technology which would make the game more like a "light" version of Asphalt 9 than Asphalt 8. We will keep you informed.

The Italdesign DaVinci Festival has been launched.
|New Asphalt 8 event: Ferrari 488 Challenge Evo Festival [Edit]|
The Ferrari 488 Challenge Evo Festival has been launched. Judging from the first Festival Cups, it may be harder for non-premium players to get the car this time because it is only granted at tier 15. The first Cups, however, already require it to participate.
|New Asphalt 8 event: McLaren Festival [Edit]|
The McLaren Festival has been launched. No new vehicle is introduced this time; it is a pure pay to win event that grants McLaren F1 cars for those willing to invest real money. Standard prizes are neglectable. See Festival page for details.
|Rare Tool Box: mystery solved [Edit]|
On February 14, 2021, we advised players looking for Rare Tools not to buy the Rare Tool Box that was offered at that time because it had no guarantee for Rare Tools at all. Now, after analyzing the statistical samples of both the Rare Tool Box and the Legendary Tool Box, we can tell the reason: The description of the Rare Tool Box says that it grants at least 2 Rare Tool cards, but apparently this guarantee has been erroneously assigned to legendary cards instead. This makes the Rare Tool Box the best (yet expensive) choice for Legendary Tools but not for Rare Tools.
As for the Legendary Tool Box, the description is correct and it grants at least 1 Legendary Tool as promised. The Rare Tool Box, however, grants far more Legendary Tools because of its bug. As the game is no longer actively developed, it is improbable that this will be fixed in the future. See the box pages for details.
|New Asphalt 8 event: Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta Festival [Edit]|
The Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta Festival has been launched. Free players may be disappointed: The LaFerrari Aperta is only granted to Premium Pass players.
|Not recommended: Rare Tool Box [Edit]|
Asphalt Nitro players looking for Rare Tools are strongly advised not to buy the Rare Tool Box that is currently being offered. Despite its description, the box does not have any guarantee for Rare Tools at all. It is possible that the names of the Rare Tool Box and the Legendary Tool Box have erroneously been swapped. We will inform you when we have further statistical data for the Legendary Tool Box.
