First PS2/Emotion-Engine based arcade game announced.
Ridge Racer V may have suffered from the jaggy effect but there was no denying that the game looked and played great. It appears as if Namco wants to re-establish Ridge Racer V on Japanese arcades by using Sony's Emotion-Engine board. The arcade version of RRV will be called Ridge Racer V: Arcade Battle. Ridge Racer V is available in Japan right now and we have an import review of the game here. October 26th is the launch day for the US version of Ridge Racer V. Currently no plans or announcements have been made regarding a US arcade of RRV.
