Daytona Championship USA Officially Released To Arcades

After seeing various tweets showing that Sega’s newest arcade racer is showing up at various locations around the world, we have confirmed that the remake/reboot of Sega’s mega-hit classic Daytona Championship USA is now officially released to Western arcades.

I have yet to see Japanese media mention it so they may be waiting for the Western release to shake out first.

For those who have purchased and received the game, do note that there is a free software update that will be rolling out sometime at the end of this month/beginning of next called the Party Mode Update. While it primarily deals with the Party Mode that the game has, it also will make improvements to both graphics and game handling. We’ll be sure to mention it once available.

With that release, here is some new media along with locations where you can find the game. First, Sega released a new promo trailer to show off the remastered Seaside Street Galaxy course:

Daytona Championship USA locations

Via tweets, locations both in the UK and the US have got their hands on the game. It is very unusual for Sega to announce sales numbers so I won’t be expecting that anytime soon but it does seem like interest in the game is strong:

Scandia Fun Center, Rohnert Park, CA:

FunSpot in New Hampshire is replacing their aged Daytona USAs with the new game:

Monte Carlo, Southend-On-Sea, UK

Bournemouth Pier, UK

Pleasureland Amusements, Whitby, UK. That’s sufficient for now – no need to post everywhere that has one 😛 Sega’s Twitter feed has been doing a good job at showcasing where so I would recommend following them if you are interested in seeing where a machine might show up:

I do hope to have some more media from the game here soon – stay tuned!
