Earlier this year, Crave Entertainment revealed that it would be publishing a Game Boy Advance version of Tokyo Xtreme Racing
, the racing series created by Genki on the Sega Dreamcast. The franchise has moved from the Sega system to the PlayStation 2, and as Genki works on the PSP version for 2005, David A. Palmer Productions is currently sandwiching the design for play on the GBA system.
Tokyo Xtreme Racing Advance will be an original design based on the console versions, putting players in control of street racers in tracks that zip through three different cities, including London, Los Angeles, and, of course, Tokyo Japan. There will be more than 16 unique cars to choose from in this racing game, giving the opportunity for dozens of performance and style modifications.
Details are slim on the GBA design, but Crave has offered up the first few screenshots of the game in action, showing off a 3D engine for the handheld version. Hopefully the final product can hold a high framerate for its fast-paced action, something the console versions have always been known for.
Tokyo Xtreme Racing Advance is scheduled for an October release date, priced at a budget $19.99 tag. We'll have more on the game as it gets closer to its ship date.
