Formula Retro Racing is a retro racing game that looks similar to SEGA’s Virtua Racing

SEGA arcade racing fans, rejoice. Repixel8 is currently working on a lowpoly retro arcade racing game, Formula Retro Racing. This indie racer looks very similar to SEGA’s Virtua Racing, and you can find its first gameplay footage below.

As Repixel8 noted, the game is still in development. As such, this gameplay footage does not represent the quality of the final product. Still, it will give you an idea of what you can expect from it.

Formula Retro Racing looks like a HD remake of Virtua Racing. The game retains that iconic blue-ish arcade visual style, and looks retro-amazing.

To be honest, this video reminded me of another SEGA-influenced racer, the 90s Arcade Racer. 90s Arcade Racer aimed to recreate the feeling of SEGA’s arcade racing games, like Scud Race and Daytona USA. Unfortunately, and despite a successful Kickstarter campaign, this racing game never got released. As such, I seriously hope that Formula Retro Racing will not meet 90s Arcade Racer’s fate.

Last but not least, Repixel8 aims to release the game on Steam in Q2 2020.

Enjoy the gameplay footage and stay tuned for more!
