Namco Bandai just released the first gameplay trailer for Ridge Race: Unbounded with actual gameplay footage in it, showing that you can kiss the pristine beaches, blue skies and palm trees goodbye. This is straight-up urban racing, with burning wreckage and destruction.
It looks a lot like Burnout to me but this is not a bad thing! Ridge Racer: Unbounded is said to release sometime in 2012. Until then, enjoy the trailer!
