Game Description

What is a VS Player?

Players in the same arcade can race against each other.

How to challenge other racers?

If a player selects YES for "Accept VS" when an opponent requests a battle during gameplay, that player can play against other players at the same location.


Accept VS must be selected upon entry for players to enter another player's game. Even if a challenger has been rejected, by pressing the Accept/Reject VS button, a player can switch back to seeking opponents again.

Branching points

There are some branching points on the courses. Just before the branching points, a panel where you can select which path to take will be displayed. The player in first place at that point decides the course for all players by selecting it from the panel.
