See Screenshots Of Namco’s Other 3D Ridge Racer Game

By Ishaan . October 1, 2010 . 4:00pm


If you own a TV that supports it, you’ll be able to play Ridge Racer 7 in 3D on the PS3 real soon. However, Namco also have a Ridge Racer 3D in development for the Nintendo 3DS.


Japanese site 4Gamer managed to get their hands on Ridge Racer 3D at Nintendo’s 3DS conference earlier in the week and reported back with impressions of the game, along with some new screenshots.


According to 4Gamer, the big difference the 3D effect makes is that it’s easier to judge distance while playing the game, such the distance from guardrails for instance. They also liked being able to drift in 3D. It’s something they say is hard to express in words.


Fun note: all the avatars in the screenshots have names from Namco’s fighting games.

    Well, this surely doesn’t look better than a PSP game.

  • Its the quality of a DS game,damn with what we seen of what the console can do,its laughing of people to develop this game >:(

    • Everyone knows that when a system first comes out, the games never look as good as later on its life when developers get used to to making games on it.

        But the PSP Ridge Racer was a launch title and it still looked great, and better than this.

  • ohsama is the best driver there

    Man the grapx suck looks worse than the psp

    • Totally. Worse than the Ridge Racer 1 and 2 on PSP and worse than the iPhone version port of Ridge Racer on PSP…

        Yikes 3DS is not even out and its already got the “bad port” syndrome. Seriously though is Namco even trying anymore?

        • Jellybit

          The Nintendo DS Ridge Racer was a cell phone game port. Now the 3DS Ridge Racer is an iPhone port, which was a port of the PSP version! Second generation port!

  • NeoTechni

    As previous commenters have noticed, why does this look worse than the 6 year old version for PSP?

  • Jose Arturo

    what a shame… looks poor… :/

  • thebanditking

    Glad to see Im not the only one who thinks this game looks bad. This has to be one of the ugliest 3DS games show off. It looks like Namco is just going to re-use what was already created for Ridge Racer 1&2 on PSP, but why have the graphics taken such a hit? I have not played RR on PSP in a long time but I don’t remember it looking quite this bad.

  • jarrodand

    Serious question, is NST making this?

  • kylehyde

    Seriously, Namco Bandai doesn’t have excuses, with the impresive graphics (and in real time) that capcom has displayed in all their 3DS related games is hard to belive that they can’t do more with this game.

    Is kinda ironic that the tales of the abyss remake actually looks kinda good and probably they won’t localize the game (and again in europe case).

  • Is it just me…or does this look like a (rather ugly) PSP game…?

  • Bruce

    what the hell namco ?? this is garbage compared to the psp version
