SEGA has today officially announced that the highly popular arcade racer, Daytona USA will be heading to Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network later this month.
Both updated versions of the 1993 classic will include the following features:
- Fresh Oil and a New Coat of Paint: Experience the classic retro graphics of the original arcade hit in an enhanced,16:9 widescreen format.
- Let’s Go Away: Relive your glory days of racing to the sounds of the original Daytona USA soundtrack, also available in Karaoke Mode (admit it, you know you’ve been singing along anyway).
- Pedal to the Metal: Drive like a pro with included support for the Logitech GT Driving Force steering wheel controller on PS3, and all Xbox 360-supported steering wheel controllers.
- Reach the Winner’s Circle: Challenge AI opponents in Arcade Mode, race the clock in Survival and Time Trial Modes, and trade paint with up to eight players in online multiplayer to place on the worldwide leaderboard.
Unfortunately, European PlayStation Network users will have to wait until late November for the game, but otherwise the wait is quite a short one. Daytona USA will be hitting Xbox LIVE Arcade in North America and Europe on October 26th (800 Microsoft Points). PlayStation Network users in North America will be able to download the game in North America on October 25th ($9.99).
