  • This Arcade Video Game was published 26 years ago:

    Ridge Racer © 1993 Namco, Limited.

    A superb, single-person racing game from Namco, featuring texture-mapped polygon graphics; in which the player competes against computer cars or attempts to set a 'personal best' in a time trail event. Ridge Racer features just a single racing track, but different sections of the track become available to add variety to the racing.

    Ridge Racer's superb gameplay places a large emphasis on 'power sliding'; locking the car in a slide and drifting through corners. Perfecting this skill is key to winning races.

    TRIVIA
    Ridge Racer was released on October 07, 1993 in Japan. And in January 1994 in North America.

    A Ridge Racer unit is prominently shown in the second episode of the Japanese TV show "Ninja Sentai KakuRanger," showing an actor playing the game rather poorly.

    According to a promotional flyer, Ridge Racer was the first 3-D arcade game to feature texture mapped polygons.

    Victor Entertainment released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Ridge racer: Namco Game Sound Express Vol.11 - VICL-15025) on Januray 21, 1994.

    A graphically enhanced version of the short track appears in Ridge Racer V as 'Sunny Beach' and Ridge Racer PSP as 'Seaside Route 765'. A graphically enhanced version of the long track appears in Ridge Racer V as 'Green Field' and Ridge Racer PSP as 'Ridge City Highway'.
