Overview

An incredibly popular racing game. The first game to come out on Sega Model 2 hardware, worth mentioning above and beyond anything else due to the fact that it is the number one grossing game of all time. Daytona also caused and still causes a problem in the arcade industry, Sega had come up with such a 'killer app' that no other game from them or any other company since has matched it in terms of profitability, leading to the phrase heard from most site operators, 'It's no Daytona'. This game contains statues of Sonic the Hedgehog and Jeffrey from "Virtua Fighter". Daytona USA was re-released in 1996 in arcades as Daytona USA: Special Edition, designed as a smaller, more affordable sit-down cabinet. Additionally, using the systems network feature up to 8 units can be combined for multi-player racing.
