Sega is developing a free-to-play Initial D game for 3DS called Initial D: Perfect Shift Online, this week’s Famitsu reveals.
It appears players won’t actually drive vehicles in the game. Cars move on their own, and players will have to up- and down-shift gears at the right moments in racing to victory—kind of like a rhythm game.
Characters and vehicles from Initial D will appear in the game.
A closed beta is planned for January, with the full release due spring 2014 in Japan.
