New for Namco in the racing genre is R: Racing Evolution, which is being created by the same team that developed the critically-acclaimed Ridge Racer and MotoGP franchises. The game will be available on all three console platforms and will ship in Q4 2003. R: Racing Evolution will showcase 4 game modes: the Racing Life Mode, Time Attack Mode, Arcade Mode and Vs. The Racing Life Mode focuses on the human-natured competitiveness of racing and gives players a cinematic story of two female racers and their rivalry. Also featured in R is the “New Interactive Driver AI System” that enhances realistic racing situations. The system is indicative of the pressures that drivers feel during real races. Races can be won or lost depending on how a driver reacts to pressure from other racers.
