DAYTONA USA × RIDGE RACER DLC coming to PSVita’s Ridge Racer title

I’ve frequently stated on this site that two of my favorite racing series of all time are Ridge Racer and Daytona USA, but never in my wildest dreams did I expect this. Today, Famitsu revealed that the famous #41 Hornet machine, as well as a special song for the release called “Ridge Racer (RIDGE RACER USA MIX)”, the result of a collaboration between Namco composer Hiroshi Okubo and Sega’s Takenobu Mitsuyoshi, will be released as DLC for the PSVita Ridge Racer title.

Details on a US or EU region release have not been unveiled, but the pack is set to go on the PSN store in Japan on June 6th, the song for ¥150, and the car for ¥250. A video of the Hornet doing its thing on a desert course similar to the medium track from DUSA is on the Famitsu source link below.

It’s times like this I actually wish I had a Vita, because this is one of the coolest collaborations I’ve ever seen. Here’s hoping Namco brings this to the west.

    That is pretty awesome. Zero chance of me getting this, but I can’t wait to hear the track and see at least a video of the Hornet in Ridge Racer!

  • Actually, if you click the Source link, you can find a video with the song AND the Hornet.
