Namco Bandai announced today that its World Rally Championship racing game has gone gold. The first officially licensed WRC rally game on a handheld, WRC provides the hi–octane thrills, pace and dynamics of rally across the globe to the gamer on the move.

“Rally cars are engineered to go anywhere under any condition so it is aptly fitting that we bring the only official FIA World Rally video game to the PSP system; a system that was also designed to go anywhere, “said Jeff Lujan, Business Director at NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. “Racing fans and PSP system owners will be able to practically taste the mud with the high-octane thrills provided by WRC.”

The only official game of the FIA World Rally Championship, WRC offers a complete World Rally Championship season across five continents and 16 countries, and includes a vast array of wild terrains and surfaces including such first-time locations as the streets of Japan and the hills of Mexico.

WRC is based around the 2005 season and features 30 official and fully deformable 2005 WRC, Evolution, and Extreme spec cars from leading manufacturers such as Ford, Subaru and Mitsubishi, as well as all 36 official WRC 2005 drivers and co-drivers.

Offering 64 Super Specials Stages on gravel, tarmac and snow, WRC incorporates six exciting game modes encompassing single and multiplayer levels, including Quick Rally, Time Trial, Single Rally, World Championship, Head-to-Head Wireless and Turn-based Multiplayer, as well as Wireless Multiplayer (Ad-Hoc) for up to eight players.

Developed by Traveller’s Tales, WRC will be available April 18 and is rated E for Everyone by the ESRB.
