Based on the hugely popular drift racing anime, Initial D, the “Stage 4” Initial D racing arcade game in Odaiba, Japan’s Joyopolis arcade puts you in the actual driver’s seat of the real life version of the anime character’s rides. The game lets you choose from either Takumi’s Toyota AE86, Keisuke’s Mazda RX-7, or Bunta’s Subaru Impreza, and each car feature real force feedback racing wheels, working gauges, fully operational shifters, and a complete interior, all suspended on a platform that responds to your every maneuver. We desperately want to see something like this in America.
