New BGM
Music List here.

--------------------

Updated Game Modes
Now, playing Legend of the Streets, Online Battle and In-store Battle, will all fill "Mychara Gauge", once completely filled, will give a chance to spin for a character part.


Legend of the Streets
The races had been grouped according to racing teams of Initial D. You start of as a new member of the team.
Each race have its own requirement, from simple things like "win by 100m advantage" to more advanced things like "Simulation 3: pass your opponent at the final section", and even ridiculous stuff like "Make Iketani faint."
Each time you complete a race, you will be ranked from 二流,一流,超一流 (2nd tier, 1st tier, top tier) based on your performance.
When you complete a whole team's TeamSide battles with 一流(1st tier) or better, the team's RivalSide battle is unlocked.
RivalSide involves you playing as a character from INITIAL D, and you are required to change the outcome of events that take place in the Initial D Universe.
When you complete all RivalSide battles, InfinitySide is unlocked.
InfinitySide will be reset every monday.When you complete all battles with 一流(1st tier) or better, Bunta's Challenge will be unlocked.
Getting 20 Infiniti rank would unlock wings aura(basic wings, dissappear after a while). 100 rank will unlock permanent wing. 250 and later, wings will have more feather, and amount of feather grows gradually by amount of rank.
NEW FEATURE(1.2 Update)"Barricade": Prevent your opponent in Online Battle from choosing up to 3 courses that you don't with to play (D Coin required)


Time Attack
NEW FEATURE(1.2 Update)"Ghost": Load your fastest time's ghost data in Time Attack (D Coin required)


Online Battle
Your opponent is now solely decided by your Racer Class. E3 will only be against E3 +- a rank or two.
Instead of having 2 bars, one orange and one blue, you only have ONE unified Racer Class Gauge. This gauge is only filled by Online Battle, which means only online battle can change your Racer Class (Rank). This also means offline cards will have a max Racer Class of E3.
When Racer Class Gauge is filled to the brim, "Up-rank battle" will occur on your next online battle. losing an "Up-rank battle" will cause your Racer Class Gauge to fall back.
When Racer Class Gauge is empty, "De-rank battle" will occur on your next online battle. losing an "De-rank battle" will cause your Racer Class de-rank.
D Coin can be used to re-try an "Up-rank battle" or a "De-rank battle".
There is a special up-rank method, that can be done at all low ranks, even E3. If you are consistently winning matches by a large distance ahead of your opponent (typically above 100m) and have a very good win/lose ratio, you are likely to be specially rank up and skip directly to A3 after winning a match. This process is to help experienced players level up faster and dis-encourage good players to smurf in the lower ranks. If you want to prevent this rank-up, you can try keeping the distance between you and your opponent in ~50m before winning. This will eliminate your chance of getting a special up-rank.

As already mentioned, finishing with a high distance while already having a good win/loss ratio will increase the chances of you jumping to A3, if that's what you're going for.
Same as IDAS7AAX, your basic yellow aura will first appear on Racer Class A3.


Online Tag Battle
Online tag battle levels will unlock different aura visual styles, except wings, which is unlocked in story mode.


Operation Kanto Tag Battle
Tag Story Mode had been updated, with new characters such as Seven Star Leaf members and Evo 5 and Evo 6 dudes.

I read "Free Play".

How is that supposed to work in a Timezone?

Also, do our old cars carry over?

It is not certain if the "free play" will be carried over to EXP machines like the ones in Timezone or Timezone Active. But even if it does, it is gonna work. Because you can continue to play for winning online battles anyway.

According to past experience, as long as your IDAS7 card is transferrable, your car will be imported to IDAS8. All the cosmetics will be saved, but your car might be tuned down. Cosmetics will be reset and your car is tuned down to SPEC 0

EDIT: updated info shows only your car colors are kept.

It mainly was back in AS7, where there was Tsubuka and Nanamagari snow. So it was...eh, plus it they were update courses.

I don't know if there's a real RivalSide requirement for winning, it is simply win the race. Sure there are some 'mission' requirements, but that's simply stuff similar to the races before you can race RivalSide.

I know for the Fake Project D RivalSide (where you play as Itsuki and the AE85) I just raced and won. Plus i got the highest grade, think it was a distance battle or not hit the walls deal.

I've seen it whereby you race as Miki (ST205), against takumi. Once takumi passes you, you cannot get the high rank. So I think it might not be as simple. But if anybody can confirm this it will be better

IDAS8 is not available in my area, (well, i don't live in Japan) but from videos on youtube, I've yet to see a single wet TA. So we can safely assume no wet TA.

Well I have yet to unlock that battle as Miki yet, so I will take your word on it. FOr what I know though, here is what I have unlocked and what you need to do to 'win' for the RivalSides.

Night Kids: Can't go past the red steering.
Seven Speed Stars: Can't go past the red steering. (Personally this was much harder)
Todou Racing School: No special conditions.
Fake Project D: No special conditions.

Yet to unlock the others, but recently finances and school are making it hard for me to play recently.

@SonicSP Yeah, no wet TAs. Sucks, but whatevs.

I like the new hakone course... basically 超高速extreme speed course. you are doing 200+KM/H almost all the time. There are also jumps. What a surprise. It is almost like playing WMMT

The game is partially locked at the moment, not all new contents are available. I'm not liking how Sega is preventing us from playing content already in the machine. Cars, courses, and even story mode are locked until we see September update...not in a hurry to play the game until everything is out

Yeah I don't particularly like what the hell Sega is doing now. Basically all the new cars (BRZ, Evo V and VI, and ER34) are locked, Hakone and Momiji Line are locked from TA, Story stops at Fake Project D. Bleh.

I think they've been doing this since D6. Not to this extent, but the general practice I mean.

You won't get it perm. It is like a subscription, once you stop playing your membership terminates. BTW this had been available in IDAS7 too, except not in our region. If you have a HKG, TWN, or JPN card you could still buy membership on the specific ID.NET region website. So far I've only seen 1 dude that have member in SGP on IDAS7.

$4 a month okey la, but I don't even know if it will still be this price when the EXP machines reach SG. Maybe they will not give us ID.NET like IDAS7AAX. -.-"

Only machines are connected online have the ability to transfer cards. I think Indonesia is among the countries to have online connectivity, so keep your hopes up.

^Eh I thought it's confirmed already?

But either way, you're arcade must support online even if your country has it. Because your arcade needs to pay Sega to be online, they would also have to agree to it also.
