Among legends of arcade lore, few games can match the excitement, the thrills and the earnings that Daytona USA brought to the scene back in 1994. Now, Sega is tapping into this incredible series with Daytona Championship USA. This listing is for the Motion Super Deluxe model (SDLX) that was released in early 2019.
This entry in the series reboots the classic Daytona USA by re-using the original physics engine and offering all three original tracks (Three-Seven Speedway, Dinosaur Canyon and Seaside Street Galaxy) re-mastered in 21st century HD glory! Sega has also created three re-themed mirror tracks to join the roster – Daytona International Speedway, Lakeside Castle and Metro City. With six tracks at different difficulties and manual or automatic transmission options, players will be able to live out their stock car racing fantasies.
