R: Racing Evolution - Namco's Ridge Racer sequel for PlayStation2™, Game Cube™ & Xbox™



Finally Namco has confirmed the exact release date of their upcoming Ridge Racer sequel: R: Racing Evolution. Following the trend of Namco's latest hit release Soul Calibur II, the game will be published on all 3 major platforms.

R: Racing Evolution features licensed cars, 11 real-world and fantasy tracks, and 8 different race types (Circuit, Rally, Drag, etc…). You can chose between 4 game modes: the Racing Life Mode, Time Attack Mode, Arcade Mode and Vs. The Racing Life Mode focuses on the human-natured competitiveness of racing and gives players a cinematic story of two female racers and their rivalry. Also featured in R is the "New Interactive Driver AI System" that enhances realistic racing situations. The system is indicative of the pressures that drivers feel during real races. Races can be won or lost depending on how a driver reacts to pressure from other racers. In-game communications allow for incoming transmissions from crew members and even in-race trash talk from rival drivers!

Preorders for R: Racing Revolution are now welcome at US$ 59.90 for each version. Release date has been confirmed for November 27th:

  • R: Racing Evolution (for Game Cube™)
  • R: Racing Evolution (for PlayStation2™)
  • R: Racing Evolution (for Xbox™)
