Crave Entertainment in association with top video game developer Genki Co., Ltd., is offering gamers the opportunity to rev up their engines as they tear up 200 miles of scenic highway in its new racing game, Tokyo Xtreme Racer 3, for the PlayStation2. For players who enjoyed navigating the open roads of Tokyo in Tokyo Xtreme Racer Zero, the game offers realistic drives along the highways of Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya.

For the first time in the series' history, Tokyo Xtreme Racer 3 uses licensed Japanese, North American and European car manufacturers. Players will be able to get behind the wheel of over 15 different car manufacture models. The game also benefits from a massive upgrade from previous games in the series. The upgrade includes the driving physics engine, graphical effects and editors, driving conditions and courses, vehicle tuning options and rival characters.

Tokyo Xtreme Racer 3 will feature:

  • A total road length of 200 miles to manuever, all graphically designed to re-create the look and feel of the actual highways of Japan.
  • Over 15 different licensed car manufacturers including Nissan, Toyota, GM, Ford, Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen.
  • Challenge up to 600 rivals on the highways, offering extended game play.
  • A virtual "stock pile" of car tuning options to choose from. Players can adjust just about every body or performance part on the vehicle. Trick out the car with custom parts from Hart, Riverside and Yokohama. Customize the look with the skin editor that offers pixel-level control of the paint job.
  • A Unique vs. Battle SP Racing System which distinguishes the game from other racers.

Tokyo Xtreme Racer 3 is scheduled for release in Q4 2003 and will be available for PlayStationÃ’2 with a MSRP of under $20.00.
