Sega Amusements just posted that gif. It's playable at IAAPA and OCCC for the next two weeks. Seems to be arcade only.

How I feel right now.

I'm going to an arcade expo in London in January, here's hoping they also preview it there. If they do I will be covering it extensively. :D

More Daytona trash posting for the greater good:

Awesome that we're getting a Daytona 3. I've only recently started playing old SEGA racing games. I would have preferred a new OutRun since OutRun 2 was amazing, but I'd still be up for Daytona. Problem is how arcade is doing in the West. There are people who speculate that VR might bring back the arcade industry in the west some day, but we just got that stuff out the door recently. I really hope I can try this some day, I don't want to have to get a plane ticket just for one game since arcades are basically non-existent in the US. Knowing how a lot of modern Japanese arcade games are now, they'll likely port this to PS4 and Xbox after a while, so I'm content. It may not happen with in the next few years, but eventually, hopefully.
Also, really wanted to play the Daytona HD port, but it's digital PS3 and 360 only. Digital games are a blessing and a curse. It's like they don't keep in mind that people will want to try their games for their first time past their shelf life. But I obviously understand it from a business stand point.

Daytona –The True Legend Is Back

You read that right, Daytona is back and just as it was first time around in the 90s, it's set to be a game changer.

Daytona USA is the pinnacle of arcade racing and now Sega is ready to bring its #1 racer screeching into the 21st century!It revolutionised the arcade scene when it was first launched in 1994, and this franchise can deservedly lay claim to bold statements such as iconic, classic and legendary. This brand new version, Daytona 3 Championship USA, features three brand new tracks including a recreation of the newly renovated Daytona International Speedway. In addition, the original three classic courses have been remastered for the modern era. New cars and new game modes bring more for players old and new to experience.Sega has gone all out on a cabinet design to do this global brand justice and make it stand out from the pack. The cabinet with 47” LED monitor is linkable for up to eight players and lit from top to bottom. It even has a moulded under seat engine!

New game features include a live in-game camera system so you can enjoy maximum bragging rights as you overtake your friends! Also brand new to Daytona3 is the ‘Live TV’ inspired spectator video billboard marquee with 27” display. This allows spectators to see what's happening in the race, whether it's a crash, a pass for position or to find out who's winning or losing!

“This is a game changer. This is a premium game that delivers on quality, player experience and operator features that sets a very high bar for arcade video racing games. Importantly we have based it on the original game engine that gave us the amazing ‘AI’ and ‘catch up'feeling that we all grew to love” commented Patrick Michael, Head of Local R&D. The game also has an all-new party mode allowing operators to run special events easily. In addition, to assist engineers, there is the introduction of ‘Sega-IQ Intelligent Service Menus’; these are designed to offer prompts and troubleshooting advice when the onsite technician is maintaining the game.

“At SEGA we have always been passionate about developing the best arcade racing games, it's part of our DNA, so to have the opportunity to work on this title that truly captures the spirit of the racing scene in Daytona is nothing short of an honour.”commented Sega's CEO Paul Williams. Whether players enjoyed the game back in the 90s or experience it now for the first time, they'll find it's easy to pick up and fun to master; with simple and quick menu options they will be straight to the starting grid. Confidence will come from the first lap and the competitive spirt will kick in as players find themselves challenging their rivals for the lead! Developed and manufactured to the highest quality,Daytona 3 Championship USA will feature in game rooms and FEC's for years to come.

Have you got what it takes to take the flag again…. because Daytona is back!

Oh, I guess it will be coming to US first. The game is called Daytona USA. Regardless, I don't think it's going to be very prominent. If this is anything like any remotely recent SEGA arcade game, you have to go out of your way to find a machine.

Huh. Well, alright then.

I am intruiged that they think the casual arcade racer will find fun in a recreation of the 2.5 mile superspeedway, but hey :v:

Takenobu Mitsuyoshi is apparently confirmed to be working on this along with most of the original game staff. Wowowowow.

Depends on what configuration they use, I guess. Daytona International Speedway has several, apparently.

I mean, it's probably the obvious one with only left turns, but if they're including the three original tracks as well (for... some reason), then it'd be sort of redundant with Three-Seven Speedway.

God I hope he is. That man's voice is like melted garlic butter on a well-done steak levels of awesome. If they do a remix/remake/whateverthefuck of ROLLING STAAAAAAAAART I will track down a machine of this and play it just to hear it.

I've yet to see a good reason as to why Takenobu Mitsuyoshi doesn't get much work anymore at SEGA. It's good we at least have something to see him again in.

I don't think that it'd be redundant, but rather that Daytona doesn't really have a lot to make for interesting scenery. Unless they take liberties with it, I don't think it's the sort of thing that'll attract people, which is probably why Three-Seven Speedway is the way it is. Besides, Three-Seven Speedway shares more in common with Pocono Raceway than Daytona International Speedway, but an oval is an oval! I think that the infield 24h road course at Daytona would be too twisty and narrow for how the game plays, so I'd expect them to be using the superspeedway itself.

I guess it's just kind of curious that a game named after the speedway never had the speedway!

This will be amazing! I hope they incorporate some old school aspects into it. They have got to remix old tracks into it. If it does well I hope we get a console release! Cant wait to see what they do for the arcade cabinet.

Awesome news. Daytona is legendary. Loved the original, the arcade only Daytona 2 and also the Dreamcast port. Amazing to see Sega showing the series some love.
