Quelques news de Namco qui nous montrent bien qu'ils savent faire ou éditer encore d'autres choses que des jeux de combats:
RING RIDERS, a futuristic one to four player motorcycle racing simulator.
RING RIDERS is different from traditional racing games where players much reach checkpoints to continue game play. In RING RIDERS the player is allowed continue the race with points awarded by skilfully navigating the bike through the colored rings and by the numerous tricks performed!
Players select from 20 different characters and race against the clock to win the intense race. RING RIDERS can be linked from two to four units. Then, players compete in a blistering head to head meet!
The Theme Park vicinity entices players with two hard-core racing circuits, “Seaquake Ride” and “Hurricane Ride”. Both circuits have diverse types of tracks and a variety of conditions: sand, water, mud, track, etc..
Players test their nerves and skills by taking to the air, sliding through corners; swerving to avoid collisions and trying to get through different color rings.
The difficulty level depends on a range of weather conditions: sun, wind, rain, fog or snow. The handling of the bike will change based these conditions. Players must develop the necessary skills to work the controls to the best advantage. Utilizing the accelerator and the handlebar players can achieve some awesome acrobatics like Nac-Nac, Cliffhanger, Cordova, Heart Attack, etc….

WANGAN MIDNIGHT ~ Maximum Tune, a beautifully, rendered, one player driving simulator.

In the Story Mode players register their car on the card and defeat rival characters one after another, the battle of all battles is against the legendary Devil Z.

If the player wishes they can also select “No Handicap” and enjoy head-to-head races in which the key to victory lies within the player’s driving skills and how well the player has tuned their car. The races with custom tuned cars are exhilarating compared to the usual driving experiences of older model driving simulators!
