Don't panic! Ridge Racer Unbounded video interview says the core series is safe

Ridge Racer fans have been more than a little concerned about the direction the series is heading with Bugbear's Ridge Racer Unbounded. But the game's producer, Joonas Laakso, says that - as a Ridge Racer fanboy himself - there's nothing to worry about. Check out our video interview and hear why, while you look at some rather sumptuous footage from the game.

    Wait a minute, Ridge Racer was never an arcade game, dude. But yeah, I get what you mean. I just find these games incredibly boring this gen. They didn't do anything to make it more exciting, like Afterburner Climax. Now THAT is a great latter-day arcade game.

    @GayforGilbert Believe it or not, there are. I'm one of them. I actually broke out Ridge Racer 6 about a month ago and played the heck out of it. Sometimes I like to play the older, simpler, truly arcade-style racing games that are pretty under-represented these days. It's pretty much been RR and Sega Rally Revo/Arcade this entire generation, whereas I'd love to see another Sega GT or Daytona game. Note that when I say "truly arcade" that doesn't include Burnout and games like that. Whereas in that context people use arcade to mean "not a sim" I mean the style of games that actually came from the arcade.

    Are there really RR fans in this day and age? Those games have not changed one iota in two generations.
