We’ve already seen the likes of Kenya and New Zealand brought to life in WRC 9 gameplay videos, but now NACON and KT Racing are taking us to Japan via another new video. Let’s have a gander at the third, and final, addition to the calendar, Rally Japan!
As a brand-new round for the 2020 season, Rally Japan is making its long-awaited return to the FIA World Rally Championship – it’s been off the calendar since 2011 – which means it’ll be present in WRC 9. Players can enjoy the thrilling mountains and forests of the Aichi and Gifu districts; the lovely places that will host the WRC season’s finale in November. Just like the real WRC drivers, in WRC 9 you’ll need to master the demanding course with its narrow asphalt roads and aggressive corners, while also navigating the lush environment which can really affect the driver’s visibility.
WRC 9 is shaping up to be one to keep an eye on as it appears to be pulling out all the stops in order to meet the expectations of the most ardent rally enthusiasts. There’s an enhanced career mode and many technical improvements, but more importantly, it’ll thrust you into the heart of the new FIA World Rally Championship season and all the content found in the yearly calendar. It’s going to be tougher and as realistic as ever, so you better be up for the challenge.
Currently, WRC 9 is scheduled for a 3rd September, 2020 release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. As for Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch versions, well we know it’s definitely coming to those platforms, but as of yet there’s no set date. Hopefully you’ll enjoy the new WRC 9 Rally Japan gameplay and that will satiate your appetite for now.
