Are they ever going to come out with a Asphalt 9?

I'm waiting for Real Racing 4... RR3 is fine, but I care for only specific cars, But the game forces you to buy them ALL - which irritates me. I'd pay upwards of $30+ for RR3 but none of that Fremium BS and allow you to get 100% with selected cars instead of the need to own cars you dont care about ... But RR3 has been awesome... I can compare to one real track (laguna seca, in monterey) and from driving the real thing vs the one in game it's pretty damn close especially for a mobile game. I like how they somehow made it that you can feel when youre about to loose grip. One thing I recommend is to play it on a havier device vs light cellphones today. I play it on ipad 3 (yes it runs great). it's a heavier device and you can use that weight to ease in to the turns. My friends plays it on Note 4 but he got a heavy case and he said he enjoys it more that way. Iphone 6s feels heavier than iPhone 5s (or maybe its just cuz it's bigger), but it's not enough wieght to enjoy it like I do on iPad3. Asphalt is just too Arcade for me. RR3 is a perfect sim, the could be perfect mobile game for me if it wasnt for the fremium model.

Has anyone here played NFSNL? If so. can you please tell me how good is it? I have Asphalt 8 on my phone. but its kinda getting ling in the tooth. All i want to know is.. is this worth spending my limited data on?

NFS Most Wanted is much better, NFSNL controls are basically the same as a non-stop running game, it's a bit crap. It's free so give it a try if you must, but you will be wasting your time.

NFSNL is a time killer, I give them that. But the graphics are all pixelated and lots of clipping.
