Back in August, the Japanese team Project YNP released Future GPX Cyber Formula SIN Vier, a doujin racing game based on the popular Shinseki GPX Future Cyber Formula anime series.
To be more precise, the game is based on the 1998 OVA series Future GPX Cyber Formula SIN. If you’re not familiar with the term “doujin” game, basically it’s an unofficial title created by fans.
That being said, Project YNP has been creating games dedicated to the franchise since 2003, and while this isn’t officially endorsed by publisher Sunrise, it has at least been acknowledged rather officially with a mention on the franchise’s official site.
The problem with the original release in August is that it was only available at select enthusiast and hobby store in major Japanese cities, basically cutting off western fans. Now this has been amended, as Future GPX Cyber Formula SIN Vier has been made available on Steam, including an English interface.
If you’re curious about the game, you can read an official description directly from the Steam listing.
