Getting sideways with Shift 2 Unleashed and Vaughn Gittin Jr. – Click above to watch video after the jump

Need for Speed: Shift 2 Unleashed will be arriving in stores on March 29th, and to tie all you gamers over until then, the NFS team has put together a video highlighting the features that may make it a must-have for racing-sim fans. Whether you prefer smoothly linking corners or destroying rubber in a fit of sideways shenanigans, Shift 2 Unleashed has got you covered.

The drifting aspect of the game was locked down with the help of Vaughn Gittin Jr. and his 2011 Ford Mustang GT Formula Drift racer. The game features a unique Helmet Cam view, which places the driver's "eyes" where they would go in real life. A road racer will look towards the apex of a turn but a drifter will stare out the side window – both of these styles are accounted for in the game, and the result looks pretty amazing.
