MAEDA: No.54 Wangan Maxi 3DX Information: 3

Hi there, it's Maeda. Pretty cold these days, huh? Seems like lots of people have been catching cold, so make sure and take care of yourselves.

OK, it's time for some more news about Wangan Maxi 3DX!

Last week we revealed the existence of the Mazda Roadster, so this week I'm going to speak a bit about the "Hidden Cars" that you are all looking forward to as well as some other stuff.

Hidden cars have become something of a fixture in the Wangan Maxi Series. Hidden cars, as I'm sure you know, suddenly appear when you enter a series of commands on the car selection screen. (There was a feature about hidden cars in Special Content No.6, remember?) Well, there are some hidden cars in Wangan Maxi 3DX too!!

Originally, we had planned to put in (This number will have to remain secret - Chief D Uchida expressly said "Don't write about that yet!!"...) XX new cars, but I had thought it would be fun to have an extra car as a sample for one of our briefing sessions, so I went ahead and drew the car without telling anybody. And so, just like the extra production for the Makoto compilation I spoke about last time, I managed to slip the car into the 3DX specification document!

Another car! My dream was going to come true!!!

And almost before I realised it, the car was running happily around inside the game.

Playing with this car on third person view (where you can see your car) is amazing - try it out!
I guarantee that your imposing presence will get noticed by rival cars in VS Battle!!

A mystery car, built in to Wangan Maxi 3DX through my devious stratagems...could it be a new model?
Or could it be a car like those Toyota Aristo owner - driven taxis??
Make sure to try and find it when Wangan Maxi 3DX comes out!!

OK, that's all for today, see you later!!!
