R-Tuned site reminds us that the game is coming soon

It’s been a little while since we heard something about R-Tuned but Sega’s latest arcade racer that seeks to overcome what happened with RaceTV is almost out in Japan and the teaser site has been upgraded to prepare for the game’s full release next month. We’ll see if Sega plans on bringing this one to the US in a couple of days at IAAPA, I’m not sure if Europe is on the table for this release either. In case you don’t remember, R-Tuned features drift racing at night in Japanese cities and it runs on Lindbergh. It’s certainly much different than something like Sega Rally 3 (speaking of which, I wonder when Sega will begin rolling out more titles using the Europa hardware) but there are plenty of fans of both styles of racing.

    Cant wait to see some videos of this game in action. Looking good so far.
    Also, good question about the Europa hardware. Maybe we will see more games(Daytona Usa 3 or Outrun 3?) on that system in another year or so.

    Well a new Daytona was rumoured as the next game Sega Racing Studio were supposed to be working on for home release after the new Sega Rally but sadly the parent company pulled the plug on SRS back in April this year and the studio was bought up by Codemasters and probably assimilated into various development teams there. Who knows the new Daytona may well have followed the Sega Rally 3 route and an arcade incarnation might have popped up.

    Personally I would love to play a new Daytona, however, seeing as Sega Rally did not fare too well in terms of sales for home systems, would a new Daytona be well received? I feel that perhaps this generation of gamer is very much into the street racing themed games such as Maximum Tune, Battle Gear, The Fast and Furious and Initial D series not too mention the Gran Turismos and Codemasters’ releases on home formats. How would they take to a new Daytona? As for Outrun 3, have not heard much about an update but you never know.

    One glimmer of hope is that whenever the topic of a new Daytona comes up for discussion on gaming forums, it is fondly remembered and very much wanted as an update on modern hardware.

    If a new Daytona ever happens, I’ll be the happiest person ever.

    R-Tuned being site tested shortly in the UK at the ‘usual’ location in Wales. 😉

    Not sure you’ll see another Europa based game for a while yet, SoJ won’t touch it when they have Lindbergh.

    I don’t think you’ll see Daytona 3 anytime soon, although who would have thought SAE would develop and release Rally 3?

    Lindbergh is a great system but it’s pc capabilities are becoming obsolete in the face of Namco’s PS3-based hardware. Anyways, I would still take Daytona 3 or Outrun 3 on lindbergh system, though apparently they are not in the works. 🙁
