Namco Bandai has announced that Ridge Racer Unbounded has been delayed in the US and will no longer be arriving later this month.

According to the publisher, developer BugBear will be using extra time to create new content in order to pack the game disc "with features that will truly make the game sing".

Namco Bandai will announce the new release date and pre-order incentives in the near future. According to VG247 the game is still on track for release later this month in Europe.

Any VG guys reading? How do the cars handle? Does it feel like a RR title?

@munkee - I need to look into Dirt 3, especially with that complete edition out this month. I played the demo for Driver: San Francisco but wasn't completely taken by it. If I saw it for a tenner I'd pick it up though.

@BC_Animus - Autolog made that game for me and even though I only had two people on my list playing it, it helped that one was a close friend I see all the time. Every now and then I think about getting back on there to renew our rivalry!

I didn't really enjoy that new Hot Pursuit remake. Probably because I was only playing single player, with no one on my friendslist for the whole autolog thing. I remember playing against mates when I was younger, think it was on NFS4 on the PSOne? Ahh good times.

Anyways I really enjoyed the previous Ridge Racer games, but from the premise and the trailers this one just doesn't feel like a RR game. But who knows, maybe a change in direction might just end up injecting life and ideas into this aging franchasie/genre. They better have an announcer like in the previous games though - otherwise I'm gonna rage quit after the first race.

I have a top 3 arcade racers. If racers can't be as good as these, then they're unlikely to get my play time, or money.

Dirt 3
Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit
Driver: San Francisco

Ridge Racer: Unbounded is gonna struggle I reckon.

I still can't get over the name. Is it just me that thinks 'unbounded' sounds properly sloppy?

Name aside, I'm not fussed about this unless it turns out to be stellar. I want to play a racer as good as NFS:HP, specifically a sequel!

They need to fill it with RC cars and a top-down view.

I'm still torn on this one. Love Ridge Racer. Yet I really don't like the look of the new crash & smash mechanics. I'll give it a phatty session. But, I'm not expecting much.
