Digital download release over XBLA and PSN appears likely...

SEGA has launched a competition on its US blog that as-good-as outs the return of one of its most beloved arcade racing games, Daytona USA.

The video below teases the comp itself, asking entrants to name the game that's about to be announced with the aid of a sound clip hint. For any kids of the 90s though, it's less a hint and more a blatant giveaway – that's right, it's the “Rolling Staaaaart!” audio clip from Daytona USA (you can listen to the original music here).

By the looks of things, SEGA has some kind of re-release or revamp lined up for platforms like XBLA and PSN. The competition small print stipulates that 10 winners will receive a digital download copy of the game for PS3 at an estimated value of $10 per game (that's roughly £6.50, or 800 Microsoft Points).

This isn't the first time that Daytona USA speculation has popped-up on the radar in recent years either: a remake of the classic arcade racer appeared possible two years ago after leaked artwork clearly depicted Daytona USA visuals in the wake of a 'SEGA Racing Classic' patent application from the publisher.

Also if anyone has played Sega Rally 3 in arcades they they will have noticed that the originals Sega Rally's Desert and Lakeside track is in there. The other tracks in Sega Rally 3 are similar to Sega Rally Revo's however they are not the same they just look the same, I am still waiting for Sega to put the Sega Rally 3 tracks on Xbox Live or PSN for Sega Rally Revo, or better still do a port for each of the systems as it is a excellent game and fantastic addition to the great Sega Rally series

I love to hear more on this as I am an Obsessesd Daytona/Sega racing Fanboy (I love all of Sega's racing franchises, Daytona USA, SCUD Race, Sega Rally, Outrun, F355 Challenge, Sega GT and so on). I hope Sega Racing Classic is a Daytona compliation if anything. Why? Because Namco's Ridge Racer (Daytona's original rival) was re-released update for the PSP in 2004 and included most of the main tracks from each of the early games (it included Ridge Racer's, RR Revoulution's, Rage Racer's, Rave Racer's, Ridge Racer Type 4' and Ridge Racer 5' tracks, and more went into the sequel Ridge Racer 2, 2 years after). So if Namco can do this, then so can Sega and it shoul include all the tracks from Daytona USA, Daytona USA CCE and 2001, Scud Race's, Daytona USA 2 Battle on Edge and Power Edition tracks and maybes a few new stage or updates.

 

What ever happen to this title is going to be exicting watching it progress it could be the Daytona we've all been waiting for all these years. Sega Rally Revo was a great game but sadly it was ignored as someone mentioned below. Lets hope it does happen to this.

 

@ SegaBoy > Sega Rally 2006 did come out in Japan on the PS2 and the copy I imported came with an Arcade perfect version of Sega Rally Championship 1995 which is awesome. Sega Rally 2006 was rather dissapointing as it wasn't the same as the others instead of being circuit based it was a point to point racer which in my option isn't Sega Rally. It wasn't terrible though.

Sega Rally 2006 Arcade Series 4 actually had the original tracks from the original Sega Rally Championship tracks but updated into point to point style.

Anyone who had Outrun 2 on Xbox can play on the Daytona 2 Power Edition and Scud Racer track for completing the mission in the Outrun 101 missions mode.

Hell yeah - I mastered both of them.  For some reason, I had more fun witht he original SEGA Rally on Saturn then I did with SR2 on Dreamcast.

Do you remember SEGA Rally 2006 that only came out in Japan on the PS2?  Saw it at Tokyo Game Show in 2004, but it never materialised anywher else.

the same could be said about the dreamcast and saturn versions absolute gems but everyone was too hyped up over the ps1 and ps2 to care about them.

I thought SEGA Rally from the sadly missed SEGA Racing Studio was a good attempot at re-doing the original SEGA Rally - Lakeside and everything!  Shame nobody bloody bought it.
