Masamichi Yamazaki, Director of Namco’s of Ridge Racer 3D, has revealed that the latest game in the series, known as Ridge Racer: Unbounded, is going to be taking a different direction from other games in the series.
Speaking in an interview with Siliconera, Yamazaki revealed more details on the new title, some of which may surprise.
“Ridge Racer has traditionally been a game, which appeals to the mass market due to its simple arcade-like feeling. With Ridge Racer Unbounded, it’s more similar to Need for Speed or Burnout instead of the traditional Ridge Racer.
“Ridge Racer should be able to try different directions. Even compared to other racing series they have different themes and styles. I believe Ridge Racer can also do this and give players a game with a new direction.”
Ridge Racer in a Need for Speed or Burnout skin? Could be interesting we guess.
