Sega Arcade Classic Daytona USA Rolls Onto PSN Tomorrow
Sega Senior Digital Brand Manager Mai Kawaguchi has announced today that their arcade classic Daytona USA will be rolling onto PSN tomorrow.
To quote: It's time to get revved up with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daytona_USA_%28video_game%29!
The days of throwing quarters into an arcade machine to experience a high octane lap around the Daytona speedway may be gone, but starting tomorrow you can re-live all the excitement at home with the release of DAYTONA USA on PlayStation Network.
It's all here. The cars, the courses, the original soundtrack and of course, the unforgettable Rooolliiiing staaaart! Race your AI opponents in classic Arcade Mode, beat the clock in Survival and Time Trial modes or sing along to your favorite DAYTONA songs in Karaoke mode!
We are bringing back the original DAYTONA USA experience introduced back in 1993 with enhanced retro graphics, trophies, steering wheel controller support and a new online mode that supports up to 8 players.
Since its arcade debut, DAYTONA USA has stood the test of time as one of SEGA's top racing titles. The DAYTONA USA and retro game fans will certainly notice that every detail of the original hit has been meticulously preserved and polished for this ultimate version of DAYTONA USA.
For two weeks only (until November 8th), we are giving away our DAYTONA USA retro theme as gift with purchase. DAYTONA USA is also part of this month's PlayStation Plus program. For Plus members, we are giving away a free theme and retro car avatars.
This game is like in every arcade, I remember going to the Arcade with my friends to verse them in this game. Good thing I can get this game and kick their asses over the internet without going to an arcade now.
