SEGA Bringing Daytona USA to XBLA & PSN
According to the newest post in SEGA’s official blog the old arcade classic Daytona USA is going to be ported to Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network later this month. This title fits in with SEGA’s resurrection of early Sega Saturn hits that have recently been ported to the XBLA marketplace, including Space Channel 5, Guardian Heroes, and SEGA Bass Fishing.
Remember the early 90’s when you walked into any arcade and Daytona USA caught your attention with it’s bright colors and impressive graphics? Gamers who grew up in this time and played the game in their childhood can now relive their fondest moments–whether it’s crashing into the walls or finally getting in first place after dumping a fist full of quarters in the machine–with the upcoming XBLA/PSN port.
“Today we are happy to announce the triumphant return of the cherished arcade racer, Daytona USA! Speeding out of the past from its 1993 debut, Daytona USA will be racing onto Xbox LIVE Arcade for and PlayStation Network. The classic title has been tuned up and overhauled with enhanced graphics, steering wheel support and, for the first time on home consoles, online multiplayer.”
