Product description says it includes all 9 races from Fifth Stage and Final Stage with new eurobeat songs, but there's no hope that it will include any new footage like the two previous Battle Stages did, right? I mean, Fifth Stage was rushed as hell, but it's not like it skipped any Keisuke races.

If it included anything other than what we saw, it would say so. That it just says it includes the 9 races from Fifth and Final Stage pretty much seals that that's all it'll have.

Still neat that after all this time they're bothering to make another Battle Stage I guess, and I look forward to the new music. But my biggest question is if they'll bother to fix the shoddy SFX direction from Fifth Stage and Final Stage. For example, giving a Z33 the engine sound of a 240Z.

Again, doubt they'll bother, it'll probably just be a cash grab...but we'll see.

Looking forward to the new eurobeats. Finally they can release an actual album instead of putting together random songs and calling it an Initial D soundtrack like with the last few Dream collections.

A youtuber called Xagy made an excellent supercut of all the races in 5th/Final Stage with new eurobeat, and I've watched that so many times my mind basically thinks it's the unofficial Battle Stage 3 lol. Sadly the videos have all been taken down now.

If this sells well, maybe we'll finally see MF Ghost anime in the near future?
