Power Drift

A racing game from Yu Suzuki, the father of Sega's early "physical experience" games, which includes such other gems as Out Run and After Burner II!

Take control of a monster machine and race through three-dimensional courses. Along with Galaxy Force II, this game made use of the revolutionary Y-Board technology.

With over 25 courses and a catchy soundtrack, it's no wonder this title ranked number 1 in user feedback in what games they'd like to see added to the SEGA 3D Classics series. We are pleased to offer this port with a new widescreen view option as well as a presentation that mimics an old arcade cabinet, including its movements and sound effects.

Press the X Button to begin. To progress onward, you need to finish the race in the top three after four laps. Accelerate with the Y Button, brake with the B Button, and press L or R to shift gears.

If you finish in fourth place or below, you will have the option to try again. Try to place first in all five courses, and a special race will become available.

In addition, players now have new gear shifting options not present in the original arcade release!

Players can save at any time and load their progress later on, use the Replay function to save a recording of their gameplay, or challenge a friend using Local Play (both players need a copy of the game).

In addition, the arcade view has a separate option where arcade cabinet is in 3D, but the game screen is in 2D.
