First pics of a new Sega arcade cabinet have apparently confirmed the existence of an HD Daytona remake.
The game – named Sega Racing Classic – runs at 1280×720, and was teased in a bit of arty recently.
No news of a home port. We suggest you shouldn’t expect any, either.

Speaking to Kikizo, Sega AM2 head Makoto Osaki has lamented the loss of the arcade market outside Japan, saying it’s basically “dead”.
“Let’s not even go into the overseas market… it’s practically dead,” he said.
“The market there is entirely redemption [prize] machines now. The users in America just don’t go to arcades anymore, because they don’t see why they should invest the effort when they have games at home.
“In Japan, you’ve got arcades near train and bus stations that the vast majority of the people have to pass going to and from work, so they get a lot of traffic.”
There’s lots more through there on Virtua Fighter 5 development, if you’re feeling flush.
