SEGA has just confirmed earlier rumors that it plans to bring its old school arcade racing series back into the limelight with a new XBLA and PSN release.Daytona USA will be arriving with a staggered North America and European release. It will arrive on October 26 for NA and Europe on Xbox Live, and on October 25 in NA on PSN. The PSN version will be coming to Europe in “late November”.
