76w ago - Namco Bandai Digital Content Manager Olivier Latanicki has announced today news of two Ridge Racer releases coming soon to PSN, namely Ridge Racer 7 3D and Ridge Racer Ultimate Edition.
Below are the details, to quote: The first part of the year has been quite busy for Ridge Racer and it is not over: we have prepared two very special Ridge Racer releases on PlayStation Network for the upcoming season!
First, we're quite excited to release Ridge Racer 7 3D license version. In the past, Ridge Racer has kept a tradition of being a launch title for new platforms, so Ridge Racer 7 was naturally the best candidate to become our first digital version of a PS3 game. For the occasion, we've also added the 3D licence in this new version for those of you who'd like to give it a try.
That is if you stay home... or manage to convince whoever you go on holiday with to bring your PS3 in your luggage! However, if you're not-so-comprehensive partner would rather fly away alone than carry you and your beloved home console, just discreetly pack your PS Vita in the bottom of your bag and leave it there until the foamy wavelets reach your feet on the wet sand (but don't drop it at this point).
With the Ridge Racer Ultimate Edition for PS Vita we've lovingly prepared for your travels,...
From his blog (linked above): The completely remade 3D edition of UFO Racer is finally on Wii! The Wii port even features motion controls like it did in the 2D version that preceded this.
Along with porting it I’ve made a few improvements. The high score is saved every time you finish a lap, there is now on screen text telling you what your time was from the previous lap, there have been slight changes to the track geometry and texture, the track is now loaded from an external file (it was previously hard coded into the game) and the font used for on screen text...
From his blog, to quote: This will be the third time I have made this game (remade not just ported), and I have become exceedingly efficient at it. It is however the first time it is on PS3 and it’s back to being in 3D (though for the time being it isn’t rendering 100% correctly like it is in the above screenshot) so huzzah for that.
UFO Racer, as the self-explanatory title suggests, is a racing game involving extra terrestrials in hovering/flying vehicles. Some stats are displayed on screen showing how much of the looping track you have finished, how many times you have completed a lap and what the shortest amount of time you have done so in has been.
Use the analog stick(s) to control the ship.
I’ll be updating, fixing up and improving it as soon as I get the time but I’m really trying to get some other things done before the end of the month so I’ll be busy...
