Script error



Initial D Arcade Stage (commonly referred to as IDAS, followed by a version number) is a racing game series developed by Sega Rosso, a division of Sega, based on the anime and manga Initial D. In the U.S., the games, which keep their version names in later entries, are otherwise known as simply "Initial D" without the "Arcade Stage" subtitle.

Premise

In Initial D Arcade Stage, players race against different opponents in various mountain passes featured in the manga. Using the optional magnetic card system, players can save a customized car and their progress for future sessions; otherwise, game progress is lost. Players can continue progress with their cards on another Initial D cabinet of the same version. However, the card must be renewed every 50 plays.

Note that resuming from another version is subject to following conditions:

  • It is not backwards compatible (i.e. a version 2 card cannot be used on version 1 machine).
  • Upgrading the card to a more recent machine is permanent.
  • When upgrading from one version to another, remaining plays will be carried over and 50 plays will be credited to the card.

There are eight games released so far. 5 are for arcades, and 3 are for home consoles. A ninth one was on location test in Singapore recently.[when?]

Game modes

Legend of the streets
In the main story mode, players race with different opponents from the original manga in the game.
Time attack
Players race against time to rank against other players at the current machine or across the internet.
Bunta Challenge
First started in Version 2, the player races against Bunta Fujiwara, the legendary street racer. Each time Bunta is defeated, the player will gain a level. Each subsequent level is harder. And when the player is defeated the player loses 1000 points in version 3. Bunta's car differs across levels. Level 1-6: AE86 Trueno, Level 7-11: AE86 Trueno w/TRD 20-Valve 4AGE Racing Engine, Level 12-15: GC8V Subaru Impreza WRX STi Version V.
Tag Battle
Introduced from Version 6 AA. Team up with a friend in the same location. One player drives uphill, the other drives downhill to race with rivals. Matcing will be made based on past racing results. It will match with tag team whose driving technique is close to you and your tag partner. When there is a difference in the level with your tag partner, stronger driver will match with strong, and weaker driver with the weak. Get the A(Ace) panel on the course. High score when you get the same color panel at the same section. Team with highest score wins.

Initial D Arcade Stage 6 AA

Initial D Arcade Stage 6 AA was released in March 2011.[dated info]

New mode introduced, Tag battle. Team up with another player in the same store to challenge against another pair of players across the online network. Scattered around the track will be Ace panels containing gold and silver. Hit those to get a score. The team that gets the higher combined score at the end wins the battle.

Mr Arai Kenzi presented the game on the main stage. He said: Until this version players battled head on. This time battles can take place as a pair. Based on the Takumi downhil / Takahashi uphill framework, this game mode resembles the original (manga) series. Team up with your friends and battle others! Aim to form a formidable team! Now not only the fast will win. Team work is vital in Tag battle mode.

In the demo course Usui, 8 times the panel will appear. 2 points for gold and 1 point for silver. If the team takes the same Ace bonus will be given. The gold Ace will be placed in dangerous areas (e.g. close to wall in corners or the outside line). In a moment your team-mate playing next to you might say: I am sorry! Take the silver pls!’ as a part of team strategy. In addition, the points given will be doubled for the last section of the course. If you double gold Ace the points scored will be 6 X 2 = 12. In this scenario there is a chance of reversing the result of the battle even if your team is trailing by less than 12 points in the 1st three sections.

There will be a total of 10 courses including two brand new courses. Three new cars are added: “FAIRLADY Z Version S”, “LANCER Evolution X GSR” and “NSX” bringing the total number of cars to 34. Online network is extended to support regions in which earlier versions of the game was known to be popular in, finally achieving both national wide and international matches. Additionally, you can enjoy in-store Tag battle if the arcade outlet has at least 4 machines. IC card design becomes a license type, the game will start operation in 2011.

For the first time, a new concept car, the Toyota FT-86 G Sports Concept, is added to the game on May 16, 2011. The Mount Akina in Snow Condition, which previously available in Arcade Stage 3, will return to Arcade Stage 6 AA on June 20, 2011.

Another new car, the Nissan GT-R, will be added to the game at August 10, 2011.

New characters that appeared for the first time in the game are : Ryuji Ikeda, Hiroya Okuyama, Rin Hojyo & Go Hojyo.
