WTF mate? How long has 4 actually been out?

It would be sweet if they finally gave it some GT5-esque physics so as to separate the men from the boys when it comes to real racecraft.

Agree Banken; I thought that it was strange that the 2007 release would get another sequel so soon. I know there have been problems with the IC cards in Japan, and that the players have trashed all the car profiles, but this next All.net release came as a surprise (rule of thumb, if testing now release for Feb'09).

I didn't really pay attention, but does it say there "Wait until July 8th, then begin Location Testing?" I don't know lots of kanji so I could definitely be wrong.

Interesting news, though. Sure beats all the n00bs thinking that Initial D Arcade Stage 4 Limited is 'new'. laugh.gif

Will the driving dynamics be similar to ID3 where the cars weren't as drifty as ID4? I personally don't like ID4 because of the drifting and gearing/acceleration issues and stuff.

Jeez, first WMMT3, not ID5. I need to get a job at this rate. Can't wait to try out the game.

I want to know if they added back in some old courses and cars (i.e. EVO VI).

like maximum tune no mater if it is a 4 or 5 gear the higher gear acts like nothing.. oh yeah and a clutch

そして, 八方ヶ原 コースも復活!!

It mentions the "rebirth" of the Happogahara course.

O_O man... these new versions are coming out way too quickly
It totally means there is no point in getting good because a new version is just around the corner!

People were excited that V4 came out but how many really did play the game.Half of the people did play V4 went back to V3.And when I saw the game play of V4 i was not too happy so I hope V5 will atleast make the game play better unlike the super fake drifting in V4 the cars slide way too fake.Thats what killed it for me.

i'll give it a try as long as they add 3 things to id5: 1 give back all the cars they removed, 2 return the other 3 lost courses and tone down the drifting. ....maybe they should leave out the evo7 in v5, im rather enjoying the MFS evo3 :S.

More from the poster. Here's the large text on the top.
最速, 最強を決めろ! (translation's a bit wobbly, but it looks in the ballpark of "Choose to be the strongest and fastest")
いよいよ[??? Event]開幕 (Finally raising the curtain at *f--ked up characters*
event)

*I couldn't for the life of me find any of the 2 nasty kanji that made up the event name, but I'm guessing that it's a SEGA event of some sort.*

This is the large, legible text on the bottom half.

操縦性ー新!! (New Maneuverability!!)
新たなるバトル感覚を体感せよ! (New sensory experience in battle!)

EDIT: Added in a kanji (感, which incidentally took me forever to look up) to the second line that I forgot the first time over. Now the translation makes a hell of a lot more sense!

EDIT2: Added the top lines as well, since I'm such a nice guy. wink2.gif

here's my wish list for ID5...
--ID4 data can be transferred to ID5
--it's like IDv1-v3, same game, just different languages (not like ID4 which technically was two diff. games for two diff. versions)
--japanese version features are incorporated into the int'l english version as well

otherwise i might not just try it at all...

Too soon. They released D4 what, a year ago? IMO, the release of 5 should be put off until AT LEAST late 2009 or even 2010...

It's just an announcement. They can announce a game quite a while before it's actually released.

I believe it's just on time, considering all the griping people have the changes made in 4.

It's like all those movies the creator of Superbad made. Each were decent, but released WAY too quickly in succession, and quality was sacrificed. It's been announced, but a bit too soon to me.
