Although it wasn't the most impressive launch title for the PlayStation 3, Ridge Racer 7 was still a fun, exhilarating experience.
And you just can't keep a good franchise down. Namco Bandai Games America has announced Ridge Racer Unbounded , the latest series iteration for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. And much like other aging franchises, the newest title will "break all the rules." In other words, this won't exactly be the RR you remember from olden days; first and foremost, instead of the traditional closed tracks, you'll be hitting the city streets for "one of the most action-packed and destructive racing games ever seen." The new theme for Unbounded is quite simple: Drive, Destroy, Dominate. Said Carlson Choi, vice president of marketing for Namco Bandai:
"RIDGE RACER UNBOUNDED injects a shot of adrenaline into one of the most revered racing franchises in video game history. The talented Bugbear development team is committed to crafting a game with the amazing attention to detail the RIDGE RACER series is known for, while also delivering a destructive game, fans old and new will appreciate."
If you're not familiar with Bugbear Entertainment, they're the "leading Helsinki-based racing specialist, whose games in the genre have earned both widespread critical and commercial acclaim." They don't offer an estimated release date just yet but to remain updated, keep up with the game's official Facebook page .
