Ridge Racer Slipstream burning rubber on mobile in December

The Ridge Racer franchise has been with us for a long time now and the latest title in the series, Slipstream, is destined for iOS and Android later this month. From Polygon:

The mobile iteration of the franchise — rendered on an entirely new racing engine, according to Namco Bandai — will feature a handful of different gameplay modes including a multiplayer mode slated to drop post-launch, a Career Mode and an Arcade Mode with three different race types: regular, quick and knockout. Challenge races include 108 different races across 6 Grand Prix Series and all 10 individual tracks can be raced around in either direction.

Not much else is known at this point aside from the promise of regular post-launch content updates and a bunch of cars and customizations that will be on tap for budding iPhone and iPad racers. It's not the first time a Ridge Racer title will have graced iOS, but with the way mobile games have progressed in recent years we're pretty excited to take a look at this. Anyone else?

Ridge Racer Slipstream burning rubber on mobile in December


I am absolutely excited about this title... I still remember the day I out-raced the Diablo on the Playstation and earned the privilege to drive that beastie...
Oh, sorry... Yeah! Can't wait for this one. I'm gonna have to make some room for it for sure. :D

I remember sitting on the Starting Line while the other cars took off, counting to 10, and then gunning it to catchup and pass the other racers!
Ah, good times.

Count me in. I love the arcade style of play with the ridge racer series. The way the cars drift feels so smooth and natural in most of their games. I can't wait to give this a try.
