Eighteen years after it first came out in arcades this 2011 version is the first arcade-perfect home release of Daytona USA. All three tracks from the original arcade version are available using their original arcade assets in full 1080p resolution. Players choose from either manual or automatic transmission, four different camera views, and either the original downsampled arcade soundtrack or the redbook audio version of the Saturn release. Lap numbers (Normal, Championship, and Endurance), tire grip, and leaderboard supported time trials can also be selected.
New to this version is a challenge mode that teaches each corner of the tracks with 30 challenges and a karaoke mode for the game's songs. Finishing races unlocks the ability to rewind and re-do bad turns from the in-game menu. This version is also the first conversion to support full 8-player multiplayer races online.
