Press release:

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 Daytona 3 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!

Hmm, Raw Thrills/Nintendo just announced a new Cruis'n, so it will be nice to see Daytona blow that out of the water. :) Sorry, I do love Eugene Jarvis but the Cruis'n series is like slow motion compared to any Sega racer. Overall though it's really nice to see some classic arcade titles return to the arcade.

What are your all thoughts on it being an arcade exclusive? I am of the mindset that arcade exclusive's incentivize arcade owners to buy the machines. When they know the game will not be a digital title in 6 months time they are more likely to have the machine in their arcade.

I understand some people online are upset over the exclusivity, but my take on it is that SEGA would not be making a Daytona 3 if it were not arcade exclusive. Well known arcade games like Daytona are popular, exclusive games is a great incentive for arcade buyers. Sounds like a win/win.

I think Arcade deserves a win once in a while. We always expect the same platforms getting stuff without the context that some type of games do well on others just fine.
For now, if the game is popular I'm sure it will be ported.
Although, I am still waiting for Border Break that is an arcade game I want to play.

Totally fine with this being arcade only. Daytona is truly meant to be played this way anyways.

I think it's a shame really. It's a well loved title and although I agree it should be in arcades, I think it's a missed opportunity by SEGA to bring a fully optimised title such as this to the masses.

UPDATE: We have learned that SEGA has assembled as much of the original Daytona team as they could to develop this game, including Takenobu Mitsuyoshi on sound.

I don't mind it being a timed arcade exclusive, but if it never comes to home platforms I'll probably only ever be able to play it a few times. Let's not forget that some people like to practice at home in order to get better at the arcade version.

Guys, there were rumors of Daytona 3 back in 2001 for Dreamcast (after Daytona USA 2001 was out in Japan)
Then later more rumors in 2002/2003 for NAOMI 2 or Sega Chihiro hardware & XBOX, none of which ever panned out.
