[PS2] Tourist Trophy: The Real Riding Simulator - Dos criadores de Gran Turismo

    The next game from the people who make Gran Turismo won't be a Gran Turismo game. Polyphony Digital has announced its oft-rumored motorcycle simulator. Titled Tourist Trophy: The Real Riding Simulator, this PS2 title promises to do to two wheels what Gran Turismo did to four.

    On the eve of the Tokyo Game Show, Tourist Trophy has been unveiled on the pages of Famitsu magazine. Polyphony seems to be going all out with this one, with a collection of bikes from big bike makers like Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki and Honda. The developer is even including real life suits and helmets.

    While we're not sure how many bikes will feature in the game, Famitsu provides a partial list. Here's some of what you can expect to ride in Polyphony's first motorbike game:

    Honda CBR600RR

    Honda NSR250R SE

    Honda CB750F

    Honda CBR1100XX

    Yamaha YZF R-1

    Yamaha MT 01

    Yamaha TZR 250 SPR

    Yamaha Grand Majesty 250

    Kawasaki ZRX1200R

    Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R

    Suzuki GSX1400

    Suzuki Hayabusa

    Suzuki GSX-R600

    The final selection will include a small number of motorcycles from the 80s, although 70% will be from the 90s to the present. Although the above makers are all Japanese, the final game will feature European bikes as well.

    Polyphony is concentrating on making these bikes control like the real thing. Of course, with motorcycles, cornering is an important part of the race, and, sure enough, changing your riding form during cornering plays a major role in the game. The magazine introduces a few of the more important moves, including lean in and lean out (these describe how far you lean your bike when going into corners -- lean in makes your bike go closer to the ground than lean out). You'll also apparently be able to create your own riding form.

    We know less about the courses set for inclusion in the game. Screenshots in the magazine show Tsukuba and Fuji Raceway, both of which are in Gran Turismo. The game will feature non GT courses, though.

    As with Gran Turismo, tuning will play a big part in the game. You'll be able to tune such areas as your front fork angle, engine, dumper and final gear ratio. You'll also be able to select your tire type, selecting between three types of slick tires and two types of commercial tires.

    Control will inherit quite a bit from Gran Turismo. In fact, the control setup will be, in its default state, exactly the same as that of GT. However, for the pros out there, Polyphony is also adding the ability to lean your body flat on your bike, which is the best way to attain top speed. You can do this with the L2 button. In this pro mode of play, the R2 button breaks and up and down on the analogue stick changes your weight around. Remember, this is just the professional control setup, so we expect it to take some getting used to.

    There will be some additional functionality that you didn't find in Gran Turismo. The game will make use of the PS2's analogue face buttons to determine throttle and breaking, which is similar to what Polyphony did with GT, only here on-screen displays will show exactly how hard you're pressing the buttons.

    Tourist Trophy is clearly aimed at motorcycle lovers. The game is even set to feature a photo mode where players will be able to snap pictures of their bikes and their virtual riders.

    It should come as no surprise that this new Polyphony project is being headed up by a motorcycle lover. And we're not talking about company president and Gran Turismo father Kazunori Yamauchi. Yamauchi is serving as the producer of the game with a more recent Polyphony employee, Takamasa Shichisawa, serving as director.

    Shichisawa joined Polyphony in 2000. He initially worked on the opening movies for the GT games, but his real love was apparently in motorcycles, as he had raced for ten years as an amateur. Two weeks after entering Polyphony, Shichisawa asked Yamauchi to make a motorbike game with the same level of quality found in GT.

    Interviewed in the magazine, Yamauchi states that he made Gran Turismo because he loves cars and he therefore understands how people who love cars feel. He doesn't know too much about motorcycles, though, and he jokes that this is true even though bikes, like cars, have wheels. Yamauchi entrusted the required love of motorcycles and understanding of biker culture to Shichisawa.

    A motorcycle game from Polyphony has been rumored for some time now, and there might have been some truth to the rumors. Yamauchi knew for some time that it would be technically possible to use the GT development team and Polyphony's resources to make a motorcycle game. It was just a question of timing and the need for someone who loves motorcycles. Actual development on Tourist Trophy began only recently -- in January, following the Japanese release of Gran Turismo 4.

    Shichisawa shares some details on the game structure of Tourist Trophy. You start off with two bikes. It's not the case that in the game's arcade mode you'll be able to just pick from any number of bikes and race away. The reason for this is that, unlike with cars, most people don't have familiarity with bikes, so Polyphony hopes to hold the player's hand early on and teach the basics of motorcycle racing. The development team hasn't decided yet if they'll have players go through license tests as part of the single player mode, however we can expect a mode of play where the player performs tasks of progressive complexity.

    Yamauchi gets the final word in the interview. He states that Polyphony first knocked on the door of car culture back in 1997 with the release of Gran Turismo. With Tourist Trophy, Yamauchi says, the team is knocking on the world of motorcycles. The knocking will begin in Japan this Winter. Sooner than that, we can look forward to a video demonstration of the game at the Tokyo Game Show this Friday.

    Talvez tenha ou não Ducatis, mas os GT não tem Ferraris e Porsches e não são "fracos".

    O problema do GT com os Ferraris e os Porsche são as licenças
    Mas os Porsche eles contornam isso com os RUF
    O jogo deve ser brutal apesar de não ser grande apaixonado das duas rodas.
    Mas com Ducatti, Aprillia e Triumph ficava melhor
    Ou mesmo uma MV Augusta ou isso

    Uma Bimota sem dúvida que dava um certo cenário

    Ainda me lembro de ser puto e me babar todo pra Bimota Furano e pra SB6 com o motor da Suzuky GSX-R 1100 que era na altura se bem me lembro o motor mais poderoso montado neste tipo de motas

    Os gajos aperceberam-se que não há grande concorrência no género de bikes... há o MotoGP e pouco mais.

    Enfim boas notícias para fans do desporto.

    Para mim o MotoGP para PS2 nunca foi grande coisa, as 500cc mais pareciam as 125cc. Bom... não fiquei fã daquilo.
    Gostei do trailer, se o jogo estiver minimamente parecido acho que será um dos melhores jogos de motas até o momento. Vi qualquer coisa parecido com uma Ducati Monster... será?

    Mas eles têm algum acordo de exclusividade em lançar jogos apenas prá $ony?

    É que se lançassem jogos pra PC, de certeza que iam ganham muitos milhões a mais do que ganham agora!

    Quem é que daqui não compraria um GT4 pra PC?

    Se não estou em erro a Polyphony Digital pertence à Sony.

    OMFG...

    E porque não há uma equipa que lance um wanabe do GT4?

    Fdz acho que toda a gente quereria jogar GT4 no pc!

    Há o Forza Motorsport que é bastante bom e a MS provavelmente deixará lançar no PC daqui a um ano ou isso
    E depois tens excelentes jogos em termos de simulação como o LFS
    Não tens é os carros, as opções e tudo o que o GT4 e outros títulos mais comerciais oferecem

    Mas o LFS é too damn hard pra controlar (quer dizer... Ainda vou ter de experimentar agora com este rato novo, G5 ^^ ), sem termos um volante e uns pedais.

    E ainda não me tinha lembrado do Forza. Esse é que já deveria mesmo ter saído pra PC, já que a XboX é da Micro$oft!

    O unico que conheço pró pc é o Sega GT.

    É muito, muito bom e recomendo a todos.
