This latest entry in the celebrated RIDGE RACER series turbo-charges the racing genre with full environmental and vehicular destruction. The signature arcade handling and drifting elements that fans have come to know and love combined with explosive action takes RIDGE RACER UNBOUNDED to the next level of competitive racing. With a new car selection including powerful vintage muscle cars, take over every alley and street corner in Shatter Bay in the most visceral and destructive racing game of 2012.

Leading Helsinki-based development studio Bugbear Entertainment Ltd. is bringing its considerable expertise to bear on RIDGE RACER UNBOUNDED to deliver a game worthy of the legendary series.

“RIDGE RACER UNBOUNDED brings the high-octane racing that the series is known for and injects new layers of destruction and carnage to the already intense formula,” says Carlson Choi, vice president of Marketing, NAMCO BANDAI Games America. “With the new sophisticated City Creator, fans can easily create an unlimited number of tracks and share them with their friends for limitless replay value.”

In single player mode, players must impress Kara Shindo, leader of the Unbounded gang, to develop street cred in Shatter Bay through high-speed destruction. Domination Race encourages players to destroy everything in sight including rival cars, the environment and other traffic on the road. Survival Race gives the player one car and one chance to avoid destruction to finish in first place. Additional game modes include action focused on just taking out other cars, drifting and dueling.

In addition to the single player mode, racers can take their driving skills online against other players in several multiplayer modes. RIDGE RACER UNBOUNDED will provide players with unlimited fun by allowing them to dominate cities created by other players, using City Creator.

RIDGE RACER UNBOUNDED will be available in North America on March 6, 2012, and in Europe on March 2, 2012. For more information on RIDGE RACER UNBOUNDED, please visit: http://www.namcobandaigames.com, http://www.facebook.com/namcobandai, or http://www.facebook.com/ridgefan.
