Sega’s last foray into the hardware world debuted on 9/9/99.
Ten years later (plus a month, whatever), and a new game is getting set to be released: Rush Rush Rally Racing.
Hit the jump to see the trailer!
It’s a top-down racing game that supports four-player simultaneous play. It also looks like more fun than anyone has had with their Dreamcast since Sega shut down the Phantasy Star Online servers in ’08.
Check out the feature list from the official site:
- Single-player grand prix mode with four difficulty levels
- Three multi-player modes to enjoy with up to four players
- Five race cars to choose from
- 10 Grand Prix race tracks
- 9 additional multi-player race tracks
- Awesome soundtrack by Black Device
- Autosave to VMU (any port, file uses just 2 blocks)
- Region free
- Rumble pack support
- Compatible with original Dreamcast pads, arcade stick, and third party controllers
- Supports PAL (50/60 Hz), NTSC and VGA displays
- Configurable controls and many other options
- Animated cut scenes
- Plus even more unlockable content!
- New: Online Highscore!
That’s right, fire up the old SegaNet account… RRRR has leaderboards!
You can preorder the game direct from the publisher here for the low, low price of €15.00 ($21.90 at current exchange rates). And don’t worry – since it’s not endorsed by Sega, it’s not region encoded either. This means it will work on your modded Japanese Dreamcast, or your PAL ‘Cast, or your All-American Dreamsicle.
First, Pier Solar, now this. Can we resurrect the Atari Jaguar next?
