Okay, so the timing of this announcement might have had something to do with our unveiling of the achievements yesterday – you’re welcome – but SEGA have finally officially announced the existence and rerelease of Daytona USA on the Xbox Live Arcade.
SEGA have announced that Daytona USA will be available in "North America and Europe" (specifically worded like that in the press release, so no idea what the plans are for other regions) on October 26th for the Xbox Live Arcade for 800 Microsoft Points. I'd like to think that the specific naming of regions is more of an oversight on SEGA's part, rather than them actually insinuating it won't see release outside these regions. Time will tell.
With enhanced graphics making use of the now-standard 16:9 ratio, steering wheel support and online multiplayer, Daytona USA looks to recapture the nostalgic gameplay we experienced way back in 1993. Complete with iconic soundtrack (now with “Karaoke Mode”) to race to, players can challenge AI opponents in Arcade Mode, race the clock in Survival and Time Trial Modes and race online with up to eight players to see where they rank on the online leaderboard.
Daytona USA will see the light of day on October 26th in North America and Europe for 800 Microsoft Points... now watch the trailer!
