SEGA has announced that SEGA Rally Online Arcade, a new HD title inspired by SEGA Rally Revo and SEGA Rally 3, will be racing onto the PSN and XBLA in 2011. SEGA’s arcade and console favorite will include a collection of new features, including the ability for gamers to race their friends online. I personally am so stoked for this title as the SEGA Rally series is a personal favourite of mine with the arcade style driving being a huge draw and if this game lives up to previous ones in the series then it could be one hell of a game.
“We’ve blended our hit arcade racing series with the best elements from the console versions to bring our fans the SEGA Rally experience in compact, downloadable format,” said Haruki Satomi, Vice President of Digital Business at SEGA. “Whether they’re new to the SEGA Rally series or they’ve participated in countless races over the years, we’re confident everyone will enjoy the wide variety of features included in this fan favorite.”
SEGA Rally Online Arcade brings back all the features that players know from the series including Championship Battle mode and Time Attack, but a new online racing mode makes its debut in which players battle it out with up to five drivers around the world. Featuring a brand new achievement system, 13 rally cars to choose from and online leaderboards, SEGA Rally Online Arcade will aim deliver lap after lap of intense rally action when it arrives on consoles in 2011 and let me be the first to say I sincerely hope it does.
