Racing Lagoon is a game that is difficult to categorize launched by Square in 1999: Inspired by the problem of illegal street racing in Japan in the 1980s, it casts you into a villain like this. In this world, you are in racing, RPG style Story and relative depth of car customization. It was released on PlayStation, never released in Japan, and never had a sequel, and in the following years, for some Square fans, it has acquired a certain fanatical status.
So much so that a team led by Translator Hilltop decided to translate the entire game into English: now they are done (thank you Kotaku). “The past six months have been absolutely fun, and I am humbled by the amount of support this project has received,” Write on the top of the mountain“After more than two decades, it’s finally time for the rest of the world to experience one of the most unique and memorable RPGs ever. I want to express my deepest gratitude to the other members of the team and all those who keep their dreams. The localization of this game is alive.”

Obviously, you start racing with other drivers by flashing their headlights, and when you beat them, you can take the debris from their car as a prize! The world also has scripted missions, battle modes, and stories about mysterious races held ten years before the game’s events.Your character Akasaki is one of the street racing team, a member of the Bay Lagoon racing team, according to Wikipedia “Determined to find out the mystery of the’fastest legend’ and his forgotten past.”
Part of the reason people like this game is its soundtrack, a small part of which can be heard in the trailer, but its visual style is still shining-this is definitely not what you can say about most PlayStation games. Square Enix’s long and legendary history is indeed curious, and I think now we can know whether its cult status is worthwhile.
