Drift Stage will feature a roster of cars inspired by the mid-late 80’s and early 90’s racing on tracks ranging from city streets to coastal beaches and many in between. The game comes fully loaded with single-player modes including a character oriented career mode, circuit races, and leaderboard chasing time trials. Local splitscreen and online multiplayer races will also be in full swing.

The game’s Miami Vice inspired pastel colored graphics and synth-pop soundtrack draws an inspiration from the classic arcade games like, Outrun and Ridge Racer.
