New pics for Initial D Arcade Stage 8 Infinity from JAEPO 2014

IDAS8 JAEPO 2014As we already reported, in our JAEPO 2014 article, that Initial D Arcade Stage 8 Infinity has been announced to be released by SEGA on July 2014 (mind, this is the Japanese release date). But today we’re here to show you new pictures of the brand new cabinet (and more…) from the Japan Amusement Expo 2014.

Let’s start by saying that the game, beside being at JAEPO, is currently under location testing in several Japanese game centers.

Then let’s move to some new features that IDAS8 will have (translated by AB):

  • A renewed “Legend of the Streets” story mode with special challenges taken from famous scenes of the manga such as “avoid spilling the cup of water” or “cause Iketani to faint”.
  • Players can now choose what they display on screen: earned titles, tachometer type and even use the “cup of water”.
  • The introduction of “D coins”. An in-game currency used for special tuning of the cars.
  • New special ranks.
  • Initial D Arcade Stage 7 AAX card data can be transfered to Initial D Arcade Stage 8 Infinity.

Now let’s proceed with the official arcade flyer!

    Played this in Nagoya last weekend. They aren’t new cabinets, just new stickers and signs on the old one. Game still plays pathetically slow until you spend the $$ to upgrade your car. The other modes exist because there is no more story left in the franchise. Many of the problems that caused people to quit playing the previous version are still in this game.
