Namco Bandai have announced Ridge Racer Unbounded, a supposedly more "dangerous" take on the series that is being developed by Flatout's Bugbear Entertainment.
"Ridge Racer Unbounded is a brand new title from developer Bugbear," he said, "I can't disclose any major information on the gameplay as yet, but what I can tell you is that this is the kind of 'dangerous' version of Ridge Racer.
"We explained that we are very faithful with our franchises and with this Ridge Racer title we are showing a much 'wilder' side," he added.
"It's important to point out that it's an important franchise and we hope to open the world of RR to a much wider audience. We have a number of Ridge Racer titles as you know across different formats, and each of these will have a unique style."
The game is set for a 2012 release on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
