In this fresh new interview, Kazunori Yamauchi explains the details of Gran Turismo PSP‘s new ad-hoc multiplayer features. There’s also some nice clips showing off two new cars coming to the GT series for the first time. Here’s what you need to know:
- Multiplayer Modes:
- Standard Race: Classic, head-to-head racing.
- Party Race: One player gets a “head start” as a handicap.
- Shuffle Race: You don’t know what kind of car you’re going to get for the race – it may be fast or slow for the event.
- Cars earned in Gran Turismo PSP can later be transferred to Gran Turismo 5 (we’ve actually heard this before).
- The Mazda Furai concept car is coming to the game.
- A new Audi R8 “race car” is also going to be included.
- Aerodynamic pieces of the cars will “move” (notice the rear wing on the Bugatti Veyron).
Don’t forget, Sony’s promised that Ad-Hoc Party is coming to the United States, allowing you to play ad-hoc mode with others via the Internet. We’ll be organizing lots of pick-up races right here in our forums, so you’d better start brushing up on those D-pad skills now!
