After five years in development, Polyphony Digital's PlayStation exclusive racer Gran Turismo 5 shipped 6.37 million units worldwide following its highly anticipated release last November. Publisher Sony has since supported the game, releasing a "Spec 2.0" update and downloadable content pack earlier this year.
Now, Japanese gaming site Andria Sang is reporting that Sony Japan has formally announced the Gran Turismo 5 Spec II pack, which will include the updated version of Gran Turismo 5 with all the content from the previous update, as well as a product code for downloading the downloadable content released earlier this year.
The site is reporting the Spec II pack will hit store shelves in Japan in February 2012, and it will cost ¥4,980 ($63.99).
The Gran Turismo 5 "Spec 2.0" update offers new interiors for all cars in the game, reduced load times, the ability to save during a lengthy race, and the option to adjust weather conditions.
Additionally, the update includes revisions to the game's Photo and Shuffle modes, offers full support for Logitech's GT5 and GT7 racing wheels, and gives gamers the 2011 versions of 11 NASCAR vehicles.
The DLC offered in the Spec II pack includes new vehicles and tracks.
Sony reportedly told Eurogamer that it has no plans to release the pack in Europe at this time. The publisher has also made no other mention of the pack hitting the US or any other territories.
