D1 Grand Prix announced

Yuke's Company of America - the US branch of the Japanese developer behind the wrestling series  WWE SmackDown! and Rumble Roses - today announced its first game, D1 Grand Prix. Due out in July, D1 will focus on the high-speed world of professional drift racing, a bold departure for a company usually associated with sweaty men and hot chicks tossing each other around a ring.

When it hits, D1 will star 39 different American and Japanese race drivers, as well as more than 40 licensed cars from real-world manufacturers. Thirteen different racing circuits and six game modes will be shoehorned in as well, which should give players plenty of different environments to test their skills at driving sideways really fast.

We expect to be able to try D1 Grand Prix for ourselves sometime this week. In the meantime, though, hit the Images tab and check out these screens.

    Dear Gamesradar, I love you. I really do. has become a "daily routine" site for me ever since finding this wonderful place a few years back. And then six months ago I discovered the joys of RSS feeds and have never looked back. I still visit the site, but damn it do I enjoy having all your content pumped directly into my news feed. And I love that content, and the articles, and the reviews, the everything... but I don't particularly need to be reminded of every single review or feature you've ever done. Every day or so my RSS feed is flooded with a swath of old reviews and articles from peculiar categories - mostly a chunk of reviews that all begin with the same letter. It's always fun rereading outdated news posts, but it has gotten a wee bit tiresome. I'm sure this is the result of a site restructure so no hard feelings or whatever, but just thought you should know of the problem. Any idea when your RSS feeds will stop digging up the past? Love, Tomtatoe
