Sega has had many racing series under their belts over the years and one of those which gathered a loyal fanbase together was Initial D. It and Namco’s Wangan series both have had strong followings as they offer a much more technical side to arcade racing than most games do; in particular with Initial D, versions 1-4 were sold in the US and did very well in some areas although after 4 it deflated to the point where Sega hasn’t bothered with 5 or 6 outside of Asia. That doesn’t stop importation but I do not know of any places out West that have bothered. Will Sega’s latest entry into the series be any different? I can only guess but I will venture to think, probably not.
For those Initial D fans out there, Sega begins testing Initial D Arcade Stage 7 AA X at select locations in May. This official page has some of the details as to what is new, including a new tag mode, a revival course from ID3, a new boost and probably more.
