I just noticed the new car racing arcade game Initial D: Arcade Stage by Sega also uses a card system, just like Derby Owners Club (domestic and foreign) and VF4 (domestic only). With a card, the player accumulate points that can buy accessories that can be mounted on the player's car. Besides Sega, isn't any other arcade game maker also using a card system? Initial D: Arcade Stage is officially based on the manga/anime Initial D, with all its drivers, cars, and Eurobeat songs. The cars of course include the legendary Hachiroku (Eight Six) of Akina, an obsolescent Toyota Trueno AE86. Battle Gear 2 has an AE86 too, but this false AE86 doesn't have the "Fujiwara Tofu Shop" labels on its sides. 8D Initial D: Arcade Stage also seems more popular than Wangan Midnight, the other car racing arcade game based on the manga Wangan Midnight. A friend commented the Initial D has no cup-holder, or the cargo space behind the seat to carry a load of tofu. 8D I think an expert Initial D player can defeat a CPU Hachiroku, when the race is uphill and isn't downhill.
