Footage from Initial D5

November 26, 2008


It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about Sega’s Intitial D5 – we first had news on this one back towards the end of June and have been waiting to hear something more since. Well here it is, footage of the game in action. There’s no doubt that it looks absolutely great, I wonder what hardware it is running on. The funny thing for me is that just yesterday I had a couple of people asking about getting an Initial D at my arcade but I have never seen one personally and I don’t know if my distributor carries it or not (although they probably could get one).

Here’s the embedded video, it does look like Youtube has added widescreen capability to the videos now but I have only seen that on the site and not on embedded material.

BTW- This is the 300th newsfeed we’ve received from The Stinger Report, time has sure flown by as we approach AH’s 2nd year in operation and again, thanks to the Stinger for the great news they send us.

Initial D5 on location test in Japan

June 25, 2008

Yep, add another racer to the slate of arcade releases this year. Sega is now testing the latest iteration of the Initial D series, Initial D5 in arcades in Japan, reports AM-Net. Since my Japanese skills are weak I’m not sure what new features this one will carry other than better graphics so we’ll be keeping an eye on it in the meantime. At least there are a lot of exclamation points on that poster so something is exciting about it!!!

Between Initial D5, Sega Rally 3 and Hummer Extreme, which Sega racing game are you looking forward to at the moment?
