    They fucked up the Vita release and didn't even bother with a PS4 release and now it might only be on a Nintendo console? sad times indeed.



    No...

    Thatís too bad, but I havenít found RRgames to be that amazing since R4.

    On the other hand, Namco Bandai might be making Metroid Prime 4? That could turn out good if itís true.

    Same here I saw the story and was like whatever. I've tried to like the franchise for years but after R4 and that decent N64 title I've been very unamused by it every time.

    Looking for the above stuff, Neo-Geo MVS, Dreamcast, and Gameboy(any) too.

    6 was my favorite, followed by the psp game. I am excited for this to be honest.
    No, just no.

    The PSP game was also great. Actually, I like them all except the Vita one and that American one (Unbound?). I didn't play RR64, but heard it's the same as the DS RR which I also enjoyed a lot.

    I loved 6, put a ridiculous amount of hours into the both Japanese PSP iterations...I'd be down to give a new game in the series a shot on Switch...hopefully get that PSP vibe all over again.

    Yeah the Vita version was the only disappointment.


    Oh I'd love to play RR on the train on that big Switch screen.

    Let's get a Tekken game too while we're at it please.

    RR64 is more or less the same as RR on DS. The DS game though has some really bad collision problems though with the walls being invisibly tighter than what you see on screen causing a lot of annoying hits that nearly bring your car to a stop which for me was basically game breaking in the later stages. The N64 game though doesn't have that issue plus it looks and sounds better than the DS version so it's still the definitive release of the two.

    I thought the 3DS one was actually pretty cool.

    I always play RR in first person view, so I didn't notice this issue.

    It was a launch 3DS title. I bought that with pilotwings and steel diver. It was good! Better than steel diver…

    Edit: who wants to petition for rhythm shift and Rotterdam nation in the soundtrack?

    The only real disappointing games in the Ridge Racer series were Unbounded and Ridge Racer Online. The spin off R: Racing Evolution is also meh but it's playable. Ridge Racer Vita is alot of fun, but you gotta get the tracks when they go on sale. I got the game used for under $10 and they usually do a racing themed flash sale once a year that includes track bundles on PSN.

    Ridge Racer fits the Playstation perfectly, would be a shame if it's a Switch exclusive.

    the fact that they're making another ridge racer is good enough for me. and even if it is an exclusive just gives me another reason to own a switch.

    Wasn't the 3DS version based on an earlier game too?

    It's better be 60fps, but since it's the next entry in the main series, there's solid hope it will be. Other than that, I'm really excited. The arcade racer is a dying art.

    Ugh. I hate third party exclusives, especially when they're stuck on sub-optimal hardware. I could rationalize this as being a portable release, but that doesn't change the fact that there is no recent "big brother" alternative in this once proud series.

    While I love the switch, I prefer to use it as a console (damn input lag), so Iím with you. Iíd murder for a pc release.

    We need a RR collection. Did RR2 ever get a home release? Would be cool...

    Sorta, Ridge Racer Revolution is like a mish mash of a couple of games.

    While not exactly the same, it's extremely similar to the PSP games. It's pretty much Ridge Racer PSP 3.
