Initial D and Wangan Midnight are probably the two street racing series that have enjoyed the most success. Today, Sega announced that Wangan Midnight will be featured in a collaboration event in their newest arcade version of Initial D, Initial D THE ARCADE.

The collaboration will allow players to obtain items to use within the game and two of the iconic cars from the Wangan Midnight manga series: the Nissan Fairlady Z (S30) and the Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6 (964).
If you happen to live in a region where Initial D THE ARCADE is available, the collaboration event kicked off today 22 April 2021, and will run through 9 June 2021. Sega has yet to make any announcement of Initial D THE ARCADE getting an international release. It’s very strange, considering how popular the previous versions of the game were in arcades. I guess all we can really do is hope and wait.
