Crave Entertainment announced today that Tokyo Xtreme Racer Drift, the latest game in the long-running street racing series is in development for the PlayStation2.

Tokyo Extreme Racer Drift allows you to race real production cars on real mountain courses. Nissan, Toyota, Subaru, Audi, Alfa Romeo, Mini, Volkswagen and more are all there to be tested on some of Japan's toughest terrain in Iroha, Haruna, Rokko and Hakone.

The game also has two distinct racing challenges. As a race car driver, you take part in official mountain races during the daytime and then race for pride (and car upgrades and parts) at night. The idea is to earn money from day races to enhance your car and then bet car parts in night races. Sponsors will further enhance your income if you are successful. There are uphill and downhill races, day and night time races, challenging weather and season conditions and a nerve-ending one on one rival racing battle system.

The game is expected to be available in early 2006 for an MSRP of $19.99.
