Ridge Racer Unbounded is a new direction for the classic series. It’s the first game in the series to be developed in the west (FlatOut creator Bugbear is at the helm), and has an emphasis on environmental destruction. You can also design your own tracks with the City Creator tool, which is said to be powerful but accessible, and then share them with others online.

Ridge Racer Unbounded is due for release on PS3 and Xbox 360 on March 30th.
