North America Gets Ridge Racer Vita This Month With Free DLC


Ridge Racer was a PlayStation Vita launch game in Japan, but it came with very few tracks and cars. In North America, Namco Bandai are trying to avoid this by having free DLC available on day one. The DLC adds five cars, three courses, two music tracks and one new extended music mix.


Additionally, the game will be updated with a better framerate for its North American release. In April, Namco plan to release a Ridge Racer “Silver Pass,” which will give users access to paid DLC at one price.


Ridge Racer will be released on March 13th in North America. The game will cost $29.99 at retail and $24.99 for download from the PlayStation Store.
