Those of you who grew up in the '90s will appreciate just how amazing it is to have Virtua Racing on Switch; back in 1992, this was a cutting-edge arcade release which seemed almost impossible to convert to a home console without major sacrifices. In 2019, however, it has been transferred to the Switch in a form that is actually superior to the original – which still feels like witchcraft to us.
Thanks to the fact that there have been several attempts to port Virtua Racing to domestic hardware in the past, we've got plenty of existing conversions to compare it to – and that's exactly what the folks over at Digital Foundry have done in their latest video.
The Sega Ages port – handled by the conversion masters at M2 – is put up against the arcade, Mega Drive, 32X, Saturn, PS2 and even the obscure smartphone version created for Sharp's Aquos line of handsets. The video also goes into some of the title's history and makes for fascinating viewing.
Virtua Racing is only available on the Japanese eShop at present, but the moment a western release is confirmed, we'll let you know. If you can't wait until then, why not check out our guide on how to purchase games from the Japanese digital store?
