Namco Bandai's flagship racing franchise is pulling donuts in the car park as it waits for the release of 3DS in March, but rather than show you that the publisher wants you to see this new trailer instead.

Unfortunately it contains no gameplay footage whatsoever, so you can't appreciate the game's graphical style, nor can you get a feel for its use of the 3D effect. It's just a shiny new trailer in a classic Ridge Racer style.

Our intrepid reporter Jon Wahlgren went hands-on with the title last week to bring you his First Impressions: Ridge Racer 3D, which should give you a good feel for how this racer is shaping up.
