Also known as Initial D3, this is the 3rd edition of the super charged technical racing series Initial D by Sega.
This is based on the popular Japanese manga series of the same name, where players get to jump into the world of Japanese street racing. The game showcases characters and story from that series along with their rivalries as they battle it out along a variety of treacherous mountain courses. Learn the art of drifting to get ahead and become a true “Legend of Speed”. With 8 courses and multiple weather conditions, this makes for 64 racing variations you can experience! You can also race in the classic “Time Attack” mode just to see how you handle the roads.
This edition of Initial D added new licensed cars, new rivals, new music, new roads and new weather conditions. It is generally considered to be one of the best entries in the series. Players can also store their race points on the Initial D memory card and use these points to tune up their cars. This provides an excellent incentive to come back for more!
