Daytona USA 2: Battle on the Edge/Hidden content

From Sega Retro

Back to: Daytona USA 2: Battle on the Edge.

Extra views


There are four special "views" to go along with the four advertised. Pressing views 1 and 2 puts the camera behind the front left wheel, while 2 and 3 puts it behind the front right one. Pressing the view 2 button while already in view 2 will switch to a cockpit view. If the user holds the first three view buttons and then presses view 4, the game will switch to a top-down camera, just like in Daytona USA.

Swap singers


If the user holds  START  while waiting for a race to begin during the "GENTLEMEN, START YOUR ENGINE" screen, the music's main singer will change to whichever one isn't set as the current by the arcade operator; so if Dennis St. James is set to sing during the races, Takenobu Mitsuyoshi will replace him for the race and vice-versa.

Time attack


A time attack mode can be activated by holding  START  and pressing the accelerator at the transmission select screen.

Reverse tracks


Reverse tracks can be initiated by holding  START  and pressing the accelerator at the circuit select screen. This change allows the user to see parts of the scenery designed specifically to be seen from the opposite direction.

Hidden texture

References DaytonaUSA2 ARC Games UniparsalStudios.png

A hidden texture loaded when booting up the game displays a photograph of an unknown Sega developer alongside the name "Sega Uniparsal Studios" (an Engrish misspelling of "Universal Studios") and Japanese text saying "Coming Soon" - a reference to the GameWorks chain of arcade-restaurants established by Sega and Universal Studios. This texture was removed in the game's later update, Daytona USA 2: Power Edition.[1]
