Virtua Racer Single Player

Virtua Racing has arguably been one of the most anticipated Sega Ages games since it was announced. The title includes 8-player split-screen, online multiplayer and a built-in replay mode not included in the original arcade release.

While there's still no word on a launch date here in the west, the game is now available in Japan for 999 Yen (roughly $9.00 / £7.00). To celebrate this release, Sega's Japanese YouTube channel has uploaded a new gameplay trailer, highlighting all of the above-mentioned features and more. See what all the fuss is about in the video below:

Virtua Racing began as an arcade release in 1992 and was developed by Sega AM2. It is considered to be one of the most influential games of all-time for popularising 3D polygonal graphics.
