Drift21 puts you behind the wheel of your very own drift racing car as you take on Japan’s legendary EBISU circuits.

Become a drift legend! Tune your dream drift car, change parts, boost performance and test your skills on the legendary EBISU circuits. 

Once raced illegally on the streets of Japan, drifting racing has now spread across the globe. Sanctioned races are held in many countries including the UK, Germany, Poland, Australia, Japan and the United States and attracts drivers at the very top of their game. These specialist drivers push their skills and their cars to the very limits to drift at speed through the entirety of a corner while maintaining total control.

Choose from a range of fully licensed cars and fine tune your dream drifting machine right down to the smallest engine parts to gain every advantage when on the track. Dirft21 will deliver an unparalleled driver experience creating a new level of realism in both visuals and vehicle handling and by using 3D scanning techniques, the development team were able to recreate real drift tracks from around the world in stunning detail.

To get your engines revving, 505 Games has released a trailer showcasing some of the tuned cars from Dirft21 being put through their paces on the legendary drifting circuits. 

As part of the ongoing development roadmap, today’s new update will test your drifting skills on the longest course of the entire EBISU complex. The EBISU West course, also known as Nishi, is over 2100 meters in length with long straights and demanding, fast corners. Take the time to explore the track as you may well find a KuruKuru Land right next to it!
