That's the game curl-6 has been hyping since 2014.

Legends say  Curl-6 still puts it on his most anticipated game list to this day

90s arcade racer is more in tune with SEGA racers TBH than RR of the 90s. Think Daytona USA. Besides this game is never coming out. It's vaporware. It was announced many years ago and has had so many delays. I was so excited when I first heard of it several years ago.



RR was dead an eternity ago. Killed by time and a dozen other franchises. I think the last time it was even somewhat relevant was for being a PS2 launch-era title. Past that, dead for all but the most niche spot.

Shame, I really loved RR BITD. For that matter, a ton of great racers are dead from lack of new entries and everyone basically only has a handful of Sim or simcade games, and NFS stuff to go on these days. Even pretty decent stuff like Driveclub killed their devs :/



Woah woah woah, why is ridge racer getting the credit for killing off that game and not the fact that it's been delayed more times than Zelda?



I've not even heard of this game before, just saw Ridge Racer in the thread title and got excited, I want a new one, lol.

This is the game now right? https://www.nicalis.com/games/90ssupergp for Switch/PS4/Steam.

While I don't think it'll be anywhere as big as Ridge Racer 8 because it's not going to have the same level of budget, marketing as well as the name brand. I think it'll still have a little success as it's lot less realistic and more fantasy style/bright and colourful than Ridge Racer which appeals to me more as someone not big into realistic style games. Also it'll probably be cheaper too to help it sales.



Well Ridge Racer is much bigger and much more serious game in any case.
