Daytona USA Deluxe, known as Daytona USA Evolution (デイトナUSA エボリューション) in Japan and South Korea, is a Windows-exclusive update to Daytona USA, Daytona USA: Championship Circuit Edition and Daytona USA Circuit Edition, and was released in 1997.

Gameplay

Deluxe borrows most of its features from the US/PAL Championship Circuit Edition and the Japanese Circuit Edition, both Sega Saturn exclusives. However, it also adds eight-player network support and a brand new exclusive track; Silver Ocean Causeway. The original hornet from the arcade Daytona USA is also unlockable.

From a technical standpoint, Deluxe offers higher resolution gameplay (leading to higher resolution 2D assets such as the HUD) and greater draw distances over its Saturn counterparts. It has since received a Direct3D patch which adds texture filtering and a semi-functional fogging effect which attempts to hide geometry pop-in. The results of this feature are mixed, however, as no races take place in foggy conditions, meaning pop-in is still noticeable (scenery just appears as a light blue). Furthermore, draw distance is not significantly improved with the patch installed.
