GTI Club Plus Screenshots



Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH will release a completely updated and enhanced version of its popular GTI Club arcade game for PLAYSTATION®3 via the PlayStation Store this November. Entitled GTI Club+, the game boasts all-new HD visuals and widely expanded gameplay elements.

GTi Club+ has been initiated by Konami’s European Product Planning department and marks the first next gen game for this European R&D facility. The original arcade game was released to huge acclaim in 1996 and was a fun and manic free-roaming racer featuring four styles of rally car and a unique handbrake feature for sharp turns. GTI Club+ retains the open element of the original, but has been totally reworked in every aspect. Running at 720p at 60fps, the new game has all the modes of its arcade forebear, but takes the race online, allowing up to eight people to compete simultaneously.

The new game has been overseen by Konami’s European Product Planning department and developed by SUMO Digital Entertainment, and has been designed to boast all the content and add-ons expected of a next gen title. GTI Club+ brings the arcade game bang up to date with incredible visuals and speed, with the option to customise the various cars with bespoke paint jobs and decals. The original game’s four cars have also been expanded with a number of vintage and modern vehicles added to the roster.

In game, GTI Club+ also utilises a rear-view mirror for the in-car view, and a Sat Nav system to help traverse the open nature of the huge courses. Dizzying replays of key action, 5.1 sound including a remix of the coin-op’s music by Atjazz, and player-to-player voice comms also add to the camaraderie as players compete against each other. The game is also compatible with Sony’s Eye Toy HD, allowing users to see their rivals as they play.

With a full set of modes, including Free Run, Arcade and Bomb Tag, GTI Club+ sets a new standard for downloadable titles. Die-hard racers can test their mettle via worldwide rankings, while Konami is committed to expanding the game via regular downloads.

“GTI Club+ brings the fun back to racing games and offers incredible value for money,” commented Dave Cox, Head of Product Planning for Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH. “It is the most ambitious and expansive addition to the PLAYSTATION®Network to date, and brings one of the most exciting coin-ops of yesteryear bang up to date with stunning HD visuals, all new in-game elements and the ability to add new elements to keep the gameplay fresh.”

GTI Club+ will be released for PLAYSTATION®3 via the PlayStation Store in November, price TBC. For more information, please contact Steve Merrett at Voltage PR on 020 7903 5122 or email steve@voltagepr.com.
