SEGA Model 3 Classics, Daytona USA 2 (SEGA Racing Classic 2) and Fighting Vipers 2, set to be playable minigames in Like A Dragon Gaiden

In a recent issue of Famitsu, it has been confirmed that classic arcade titles, Daytona USA 2 (now renamed SEGA Racing Classic 2) and Fighting Vipers 2 will be fully playable as minigames in Like A Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name. For the first time ever, arcade goers can now play Daytona USA 2 at home and Fighting Vipers 2 can now be played worldwide as the original home ports were only available for Europe and Japan territories.

In addition, SEGA Master System titles will also make an appearance again as playable games since Lost Judgment such as Flicky, Galaxy Force, and many more. It amazes me to see more arcade titles ported to RGG games from Yu Suzuki’s classics, Model 2, and now Model 3 games. If this keeps up, I wonder what rare classic SEGA games will appear in Like A Dragon: Infinite Wealth?

Like A Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name will be available for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC (Steam) on November 9.

    the blue flame suggest SRC2 is the “power edition” of daytona usa 2.

    Please help me contact Sega to also ask for the “battle on the edge” version of daytona 2 because if we only get power ed; that means we will miss out on the forest dome indoor oval track!!

    I really wish they would stop doing this in lieu of standalone releases. Motor Raid not being available outside of Judgement was bad enough, but it’s even more obnoxious that this massively anticipated port is relegated to being another Yakuza sideshow. I have zero interest in the Yakuza franchise and don’t want to clog up my PS4’s hard drive with 20+ gigs of game that I’ll never play, not to mention however much of LaD Gaiden needs to be slogged through to even access Daytona 2 to begin with. I guess I should be grateful it’s this instead of Arcade1Up trapping it in one of their plywood lag boxes, but it’s still such a completely asinine way to handle releasing these masterpiece games.

      I won’t disagree with you. I think the intended purpose however, is to hype up the Yakuza games, but I agree, it’s a pain in the ass. Don’t get me wrong though. I appreciate what Sega is doing, because otherwise, we get nothing, but i wish they would feature it as standalones maybe after a year of “premium users” playing it on their fancy Yakuza games. Sort of like letting people who buy the Yakuza game get first crack, but then a smaller standalone port is made available for the poor peasants.

      Although to be honest, I must say that Sega did put the arcade games at the beginning of the game this time, and it’s all in Chapter 1 of Like a Dragon Gaiden. So it won’t take long to access the Arcade where the games are. But I agree, release the darn things as standalones, and just make people buy it directly from the Sega Store or something if they don’t want Steam to get a cut.

    Huh, that’s interesting with Flicky. That’s actually the SG-1000 version, don’t see those games ported very often.

    Someone hasn’t figured out how to rip the games out of the main game to somehow play as standalone?
