In an interview with Japanese show “Love Cars!”, Yamauchi hinted at updates to GT5‘s damage modeling:
“In GT5, NASCAR cars will able to smash into little pieces – some the size of a bolt.”
This sounds like a significant progression from what we’ve seen on the WRC cars so far, and it actually isn’t the first time he has mentioned a more violent damage model. He also states he will be able to reveal the release date of the game “soon” (presumably at E3 in June). The problem is that this interview is on video, so we can’t rely on bungled Google translations to see if there’s any other tidbits that we might be missing. You can see the full unedited clip right here, so if you speak Japanese, please check it out and let me know if you hear anything else of interest.
Thanks to Denur for the tip, and Famine for the clarified translation above!
UPDATE: Although we are still waiting for a trusted source to confirm the complete contents of this interview, some have cast doubt regarding the reliability of Yamauchi’s quote above. Until we have confirmation otherwise, it’s best to assume this was never actually said.
