Namco Bandai to Bring Ridge Racer Franchise to iPhone

Sometimes it’s just plain impossible to hate a good racing game.

Namco Bandai is apparently set to release a version of Ridge Racer, its classic arcade racing game to the iPhone.

The Ridge Racer series has been gracing a variety of gaming platforms since 1993 with its unique, drift-heavy racing style. The iPhone version looks similar to the recent PSP editions of the game, where you race against up to 12 competitors. The controls are said to be accelerometer-based, and the screenshots show a gas pedal & brake located either both on one side, or one on each side of the screen.

Both behind-the-car and front bumper camera options are visible as well. Not much else is known regarding the feature list of the game or its technical requirements, but we’ll do our best to bring you details as they become available.
