Zero4 Champ series
Group DescriptionA series of racing games by Media Rings, dedicated to Japanese street racing style called "Zero4" or "zeroyon" (ゼロヨン; the name is derived from the customary racing distance of 0-400 meters). Besides actual racing gameplay, these games contain extended simulation-style story modes, in which an aspiring driver has to earn money, purchase and customize cars, and win races, eventually becoming a champion.
The series was the brainchild of designer Yutaka Kaminaga, and were famously known as the first Japanese-made racing games to feature licensed cars from real manufactures.
