Namco Bandai is taking the old Ridge Racer franchise for another spin, its first in almost three years, this time on the visual powerhouse that is... Apple's iPhone? Yes, Ridge Racer: Accelerated is an iPhone game.

But at least Namco Bandai hasn't forgotten about the arcade-style racing game, with plans to release Ridge Racer: Accelerated some time this month. Further details are still forthcoming, but Famitsu has in-game screens and swears it'll be out before the end of the year for an unspecified price.

Some screenshots:

That's what I was thinking, doesn't look anything like the PSP polish.

This looks alright!! The car racing games are popping out left and right, on the app store. The competition is getting really fierce.

Kind of looks like a cheap windwos mobile racing game that uses software rendering... they do know that you can do hardware accelerated graphics on the iphone right?

This won't be able to compete with Gameloft's and EA's racing games.

The car engine in the trailer sounds awesome, but once I saw the gameplay trailer it's not too awesome anymore.

Played RR a TON on the PS1. Had high hopes for this...

Gameplay video looks VERY weak :(

Yeh, you just couldn't beat getting sideways in RR...but this, makes you not want to even get excited about getting sideways again...

this could be succesful if it was released last year or even early this year
but now that we have Real Racing,Asphalt 5,NFSU and NFSS is coming soon
i don't think so, this looks good only for those who haven't yet see all the game i said ;)

I was a huge Ridge Racer fan on the PSP. However this looks terrible. I suppose this answers the question of which is the more powerful machine iPod or PSP. Unless of course Namco are really rubbish programmers.

Like Betty said - I was and still am a huge fan of the Ridge Racer series on the PSP system but I can't imagine this to be good from what I've seen, they should really have touch controls and better graphics engine to make this good.
