This is the name of one of the legends who made the video game industry what it is today. Designer, programmer, producer, and engineer, he headed the AM2 department releasing some of the greatest titles ever published by SEGA.
Games like Space Harrier, Hang-On, After Burner, Virtua Fighter, and Shenmue lead him to be globally considered one of the most important figures in the whole scene. But other than these, there’s a specific game who is considered his masterpiece, and that 33 years after its original release is still very popular among gamers of all ages. Obviously, we’re talking about OutRun!
Pioneering non-linear gameplay, selectable soundtrack, and a state-of-the-art graphics style, OutRun is one of the best selling games ever. Appeared in Japanese arcades in 1986, this innovative high action road racing adventure sees the player race across the world at the incredible speed of 270 Km/H; released in three versions: deluxe, standard and upright cabinets OutRun was present in every arcade worthy of that name. And due to its incredible success, it has been ported for all the systems of that era including MSX, Commodore 64, Amiga, PC-Engine, Sega Mega Drive and many others. Followed by a large number of sequels, it is also present in modern titles like Yakuza 0, Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, and Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise!
But if you’re a Nintendo Switch owner, and you need for speed, today is your lucky day! Yes, because OutRun is finally out on Nintendo eShop!
Turn the ignition, and step on the gas of your shiny red Ferrari Testarossa Spider; several thousands of kilometers just waiting for the burning rubbers, they’ll lead you to one of the five endings that will crown you as the fastest racer of the world.
In OutRun for Switch, you can feel all the speed, the thrills, and the wind in your hair directly from the 80s; accompanied by the wonderful soundtrack composed by Hiroshi Kawaguchi this gem tests your nerves, reflexes, and your driving skills to unbelievable limits!
Roar over the asphalt, drive through the devil’s canyon, slip ‘n’ slide on the wheat field, and across the line, but be careful…even if absolutely exciting, OutRun for Switch is not an easy ride, ’cause hordes of screaming-fast cars will try to throw you off the road.
Now stop talking; do you have what it takes to come out on top? Discover it with this digital-only retro gem…all is up to you.
You’re cool & the engine is hot! Get geared for the ride of your life!
