MotoGP 4 peelin' out on the PS2
Namco's two-wheeling racer returning to Sony's console in Q3; latest version features all three engine classes; first screens inside.
Namco Hometek today announced that MotoGP 4 is currently in development and will be available on the PlayStation 2 sometime in the third quarter of this year. This is the fourth PS2 edition of Moto GP, and it's the first since Moto GP 3 was released in 2003.
In MotoGP 4, riders will once again be treated to a realistic simulation of motorcycle grand prix racing. All three racing classes--125cc, 250cc, and GP--from the 2004 season are included in this version, along with 16 real-world courses. Gamers will also be able to select from a roster of real professionals, including Kevin Schwantz, Wayne Gardner, and Mick Doohan. When not tearing through a hairpin, riders can upgrade their rides with new parts, as well as test them on practice runs.
The Moto GP franchise has also seen a tangential series on the Xbox and PC. Moto GP 3 for the Xbox and PC is scheduled to hit the road next month.
