Do-da do-da do-do-do-do do-do-do! Daytona USA coming to XBLA / PSN?

According to a recent Australian Classification Database rating, Daytona USA may be making its way to multiple platforms in the near future. Its listing mentions merely that it’s multi-platform, but given Sega’s recent push to re-release Sega Dreamcast, Genesis, Sega CD and Saturn classics to Xbox Live Arcade we’re putting our money on an XBLA release. Ratings usually mean a game is fairly far along, so we should be hearing something in the near future. Thanks to @lifelower for the tip.

Reading the title, thought you were gonna have a posse lining up to lynch you.

Interesting. Defies logic it's not there already. Other than the fact Sega hates money.

Never played a Daytona game. Are they any good?
Heck yeah. Sit down cabs are still pretty popular at bowling alleys and Dave and Busters. I love Daytona.

I thought they don't have the rights to Daytona anymore, shouldn't this say SEGA Racing Classic or something instead?

If it doesnt come with a wheel and a gearbox I can slam from 4th to 1st around every corner, then this is pointless.

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG

Please let it be true.

But honestly, I somehow expect Sega to fuck it up.

Thank god for emulators tho. Proper wheel/force feedback support, widescreen support, and even 3D!

Don't worry, there surely is a monster like that.

And I'm sure he'll post in a few minutes right in this thread.

G25/Fanatec support or bust.

Without a wheel and connectivity, it just isn't the same. :(

Yup. Though if they scored the rights to use the name (and therefore the music) then it will be amazing. I wouldn't have high hopes of getting lag-free multi for more than four players, though.

PS. Is it weird that I still get goosebumps when hearing the theme? The whole song just reeks of my teenage years spent in arcades.

I hope this means we'll eventually get Scud Racer too...

Loved that game!

I predict people will be disappointed by this once they realise the limitations of the old arcade code cannot be improved upon due to SEGA losing just about every source code base ever.

BUT

It's still fucking DAYTONA.

Naw, son; these day's it's all about the piano version:

My google skills have failed me, yes, that is the superior version.

I remember playing this game on some arcade machine. It was a long time ago.
