Daytona USA: Development details, pics, Japanese date
Japan gets Daytona USA on October 26. It will be priced at 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox 360, so we can be pretty sure our version will be about $10 on both systems. Daytona USA features new HD visuals and support for eight player online play. Modes include a time attack mode, a challenge mode, and a Rooooooling Staaaaart!-tastic karaoke mode. I’m basically in for just the last feature.
Who’s making this game? Andriasang says that Daytona USA is being ported by the same team that previously worked on the home ports of Virtua Fighter 5, Virtual On Oratorio Tangram, After Burner Climax and Virtual On Force. A recent blog post calls them the AM Port Team.
You’ll find some new screenshots of the game in our gallery below. They are blocky as f*ck. I love that there’s still 8-sided wheels in the pit crew shot.
