    anyone know what's happened to the game?
    Even though I was hoping they'd make a traditional top gear game like their kickass GBA top gear, I still really hope this game comes out.

    The official website for it was taken down last month. Also the publisher ShadeTree has apparently ceased to be and the developer Tantalus Interactive haven't updated their site since last year.

    Perhaps it'll never come out. [​IMG]

    Well the gamestats say 31st December 2008 so that's obviously not true & Chaos.com has always gotten things wrong.

    I'd love their date to be true though.

    I sent tantalus an email, I'll let you guys know if I get a response.
    This was/is one of the games I'd gladly buy [​IMG]


    edit-
    Just throw a couple Z's in the title and I bet Ubisoft would love to publish it

    It leaked? Nice.

    Puchi Puchi Virus (US) was another incredibly early leak, IIRC.

    Alrighty, the game is pretty fun so far.
    doesn't look like any language options tho.. they must be in there somewhere considering tantalus is an australian company...

    I personally think that this game was not developed by Tantalus but published by them instead. Why would they have Japnese release months before English, it does not make sense.

    Perhaps they just bought the rights to the game and localised it?
