Initial D: Arcade Stage Ver.3, released in 2004, benefits from a slight graphic improvement thanks to an increase in Ram in the Naomi 2 Hardware: finer texture and clipping problem solved. This latest version combines the two previous versions, continues the story until volume 27 of the manga (the last available at the time of the game’s release), adds 4 new racing cars, 3 new opponents, 2 races and some circuits
can be played on snow. The magnetic cards of ver. 1 & 2 are compatible.
