90 S Arcade Racer 1

It’s been quite some time since we last heard from developer Antonis "Pelikan13" Pelekanos about his hotly anticipated Kickstarter project, 90s Arcade Racer.

A love letter to SEGA’s cabinet racer line including the likes of Daytona USA, 90s Arcade Racer for the Wii U eShop and several other platforms will pay tribute to the arcade hits of yesteryear with classic mechanics, a colourful and vibrant look and a blend of unique but memorable tracks.

The new 60fps Wii U gameplay footage shows off the title’s slick menu layout, two tracks, spot-on drift mechanics and allows you to briefly experience the overall vibe of 90s Arcade Racer with pumping beats and overhead menu announcers.

For more information about the upcoming Wii U eShop title, take a look at our 2013 interview with the game’s developer. Let us know in the comments just how eager you are to experience 90s Arcade Racer on your Wii U.
