It wasn't the news we were hoping for sadly, however we can still look forward to Shutokou Battle Xtreme coming to iOS and Android mobile platforms later this month.
The mobile title is free to play and developer Genki are currently asking fans to pre-register on the official site with various bonuses on offer depending on the number of players registered as seen below.
10,000 – Two-Star Suzuki Alto Works HA36S 2015
50,000 – 500 VIP Coins
150,000 – 1,000 VIP Coins
Shutokou Battle Xtreme will task players to drive on the Tokyo motorways at high speeds (at night no less) while taking on rival drivers. We can no doubt expect to see a range of iconic Japanese cars on offer with some customisation options thrown in for good measure.
