Matchbox’s Storied Legacy

Founded in 1953 by Jack Odell, Matchbox cars have been a staple for children and collectors worldwide. The brand began with a simple toy that could fit inside a matchbox and has since grown to include a wide range of miniature die-cast cars and vehicles. Today, Matchbox continues to thrive, with plans for a live-action film adaptation in the works.

Matchbox Driving Adventures will allow players to delve into the exciting world of Matchbox cars, bringing the thrill of racing and exploring to a new generation. For more information, check out the full game announcement trailer and follow Outright Games on YouTube, X (Twitter), and Instagram.
