Sega Offers Free Software Upgrade for Daytona

Sega released a free software upgrade for its Daytona Championship USA racing game that adds brand new features and a refined experience. The update includes a new panoramic attract sequence that works with four linked cabinets or more,

Transforming a bank of games into a massive billboard.

Other updates include refined car handling, refined force feedback, and revised AI difficult that makes the game more accessible for beginners and more difficult for those looking for a challenge. Updated graphics and audio, as well as a new part mode that can handle up to 128 players, complete the update.

The update is free of charge and Daytona operators should receive a USB-drive containing it soon. If you do not receive the USB, email sales@segaarcade.com  (or customers can follow the links below to download the files themselves).

“The entire process is easy: You just need one USB-drive to update multiple cabinets, and the same USB-drive will also update the billboard and gameboard,” said Sega GM Justin Burke.
