Daytona USA crossing over with Ridge Racer? It’s happening. On June 6th, Namco Bandai are going to release the Hornet car from Daytona USA as a download for Ridge Racer on the PlayStation Vita for 250 yen. A song called “Ridge racer (RIDGE RACER USA MIX)” will be also be released for 150 yen. Take a look at the collaboration below:

  • The car looks horribly out of place and the Datona theme is reeking with cheesy nastalgia. For those reasons alone I will rush out and buy a copy.

    I was just on a nostalgia spree and listening to that song again.

  • Kitestwinblades

    LOL that song… so hilarious XD nearly has that daytona spirit.
    I havent heard good things about the Vita game content wise but THIS is quite interesting. In a way- I would have much pefered this for GT5, but seeing the old car go that fast without much of its original graphics taken out just puts a smile on my face X3

  • TheGameroomBlitz

    I was really hoping they were going to use Kaz Hirai samples in that song…

    • RupanIII

      I was thinking the same thing! Oh man, that would’ve been awesome.

    Once again proving Sega old franchise is damn nice.^^ But because of bad marketing they fall and burn.T_T

    It better have a Rolling Start!

    • You rather mean:

  • LustEnvy

    Too bad the game is a serious train wreck. As bad as reviews have been, I STILL bought it through PSN. I LOVED RR6, 7, and the PSP ones. This game should’ve been no more than $10. Ridge Racer is dead to me now.

       I don’t think the game is really that bad, just that the extremely clunky way of making the majority of the content DLC was a nightmare. 

      It’s not really unfairly priced either, since the base game was released for a lower than average price and they made two affordable “passes” to download all of the DLC to date.  With everything downloaded, there’s plenty of content to be comparable to a full priced game.  It’s just… why didn’t they just release it as a full priced game with all of the obviously planned content?

      But anyway… DAYTOOOOONAAA.  I will buy this.

    The most unlikely cross over in video game history is also the greatest in video game history. I’d like to thank the goddess of Planeptune for helping to make such a collaboration possible.

    Vita purchase justified!

    • Repede91

      I’ve probably watched this trailer about 30 times now. I need to find this song without the so I can make it my ringtone. “RIDGE RACER! DO DO DO DO DO DO DO! ALL OF US! RIDGE RACER!”

    • Repede91

      What if this song was in that Ridge Racer dub-step thing?

      This DLC continues to blow my mind!

  • Zonic505

    The crossover I never asked for, but it’s oh so hilariously cheesy. I’m honestly tempted to at least rent this game now just so I can download both the Hornet & that song.

  • Haha, was that Takenobu Mitsuyoshi? If so, that’s awesome.

  • ToshiChan

    Sadly it was not the horse

  • xxx128

    This is so WRONG and yet awesome. Would be cool if they gave us a complete edition as i dont DLC for the life of me.
