Star Wars Racer Arcade (スター ウォーズ:レーサー アーケード) is a racing game developed by Sega Rosso and LucasArts in 2000 for the Sega Hikaru arcade system. The game is inspired by the podracing sequences in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, and the controls are replicas of podracer controls. Sega Logistics Service announced it would end service on the arcade machines on March 31, 2017.[2][3]


For generations, the GALACTIC PODRACING CIRCUIT has thrilled citizens of the Outer Rim Territories with its dangerous combination of high-speed vehicles and high-risk courses.

Amid the ruffians and racing elite, one champion stands above the rest. His name is Sebulba, a cunning and ruthless pilot who wins by any means necessary.

To challenge him, all the best Podrace pilots in the Outer Rim have gathered on the desert planet Tatooine for the legendary BOONTA CLASSIC. This monumental event will determine who will claim the title of fastest Podracer in the Galaxy...
