About The Game
Drift through hairpin turns at blistering speeds to edge out the rest of the pack with powerful drift-tuned cars in the newest installment of the global smash Ridge Racer series.
Using the stereoscopic 3D power of the Nintendo 3DS™, players will be able to experience a level of intimacy with the on-screen races like never before. Players can now accurately judge the distance between them and the competition with 3D depth of field for some of the most intense arcade racing available. Dirt will fly through the screen on rough terrain and nitrous flames will burst out of tail pipes in a brilliant show of the game's particle effects.
Other features include an all-new line up of high-powered muscle machines joining the existing in-game selection of race-tuned road beasts, while the new Drift Button brings makes it easier than ever to pull off spectacular turns through tight corners without losing position. New, exciting and vibrant courses include canyons and snow-capped mountains in addition to favourite courses from previous Ridge Racer titles.
Ad Hoc multiplayer mode lets up to four players battle it out for drift supremacy. Choose a registered Mii™, tag, or your own photo to appear above your machine during a race and know exactly who you’re racing against. Swap Ghost data with other players through StreetPass, and create your personal ‘My Ranking’ profile by swapping course records with friends. Racing with friends has never been such red hot fun.
