Ridge Racer 7 is the latest installments in the Ridge Racer series, exclusively released for iOS and Android platforms on select markets.
Unlike the previous installments, in this title, players have to draw/trace a specific path prior and tap the screen at certain points in the race to execute drift, similar to Drift Spirits, Bandai Namco's drift racing game.
The main career mode is now dubbed "Ridge Racer World Cup", set in Ridge City. Reiko Nagase returns for the series, but not as the race queen, but rather as the player's manager.
Aside from the Ridge Racer World Cup, a side event dubbed "Legend League" is also available if the player has reached a certain level. The league is coordinated by Jin Kazama, who also serves as a boss.
Drifting and Controls
Drifting is now executed at specific zones marked in green and white. The white strip on the drift zone indicate the "perfect drift". Drifts are now rated based on the player's reaction time.
Cars divided into three classes: R1, R2 and R3.
