Remember the Senile Team indie Dreamcast game Rush Rush Rally Racing that came out way back in 2009? The game also got a WiiWare release back in 2012 featuring two new modes titled challenge and time attack. Now Senile Team is set to re-release the game as Rush Rush Rally Reloaded back on the SEGA Dreamcast with the two modes that used to be exclusive to the Wii version.
Senile Team isn’t stopping there since they have said Rush Rush Rally Reloaded will also feature re-designed menus, improved graphics, faster loading, optimized video code, and a lot more features. If you want to see everything that is new in Rush Rush Rally Reloaded has to offer hit the jump to check that out.
Compared to Rush Rush Rally Racing on Dreamcast, new features in Rush Rush Rally Reloaded include:
- New single player mode: Time Attack.
Drive around in a selected race track endlessly to improve your best lap time. This mode is also a good way to practice for the Grand Prix!
- New single player mode: Challenge.
Like “Get Ahead” from the original game, but against CPU players.
- Re-designed menus.
- Changed camera distance so you can see a bit more of the road ahead.
- Some improved graphics, including but not limited to: light beams are larger and rotated more smoothly, more colorful billboards, additional illustrations.
- Faster loading.
- Optimized video code. The original was already running at 60fps most of the time, but there were some issues particularly in split-screen modes. These are now also running at 60fps.
- Removed video mode switches between 640×480 and 320×240 resolutions. Low-resolution parts are now upscaled to 640×480. This should fix screen blanking issues that occurred on some TVs.
- Changed video signal settings. This should fix positioning issues that occurred on some TVs.
- Support for more character sets in name entry (press up or down to select a different character set).
- Last entered name is remembered for name entry so you don’t have to input your whole name every time.
- Improved legibility of internet score codes (the difference between O and D used to be hard to see on some TVs)
- Redesigned packaging and user manual.
- 6 languages: English, German, Dutch, Spanish, French and Italian (defaults to English, can be changed in options menu).
- Improved control configuration options.
- Added engine sound option.
- Various other bugfixes and optimizations.
