Update: Namco Bandai UK marketing director Lee Kirton has confirmed that the delay doesn’t affect Europe, therefore you’ll still be able to play Ridge Racer Unbounded from the end of March.
Original: Ridge Racer Unbounded will now miss its late March release date in the US after Namco announced that the game has been delayed.
While this news is no doubt disappointing for fans of the series, the good news is that the publisher has decided that it wants the extra time “to pack the disc with features that will truly make the game sing”.
There has been no new release date announced as of yet, although the publisher has promised one soon.
Remember, if you pre-order Ridge Racer Unbounded on PS3 or Xbox 360 from ShopTo then you’ll automatically be upgraded to the Limited Edition, giving you access to 3 Cars – The Immortal, Road Wolf & Ghoster and 5 Paint Jobs – Pac-Man, Galaga, Tekken, SoulCalibur & Ace Combat.
