NAGAMATSU: No.28 "Checking out the answers"

Hello everybody! It's the mystery Judo man, Nagamatsu. Yo!!

We're going to be getting into the rainy season pretty soon.
It's been nice and warm up 'till now, but this weather, with rain and sudden cold spells, makes it difficult to live comfortably.

I hope the rainy season finishes early and we can start enjoying our summer holidays...

Eh? What? You don't need this boring introduction? You want me to hurry up and check the answers I got to the question about my new car in the last issue??

You lot are impatient, aren't you? OK then...

The correct answer is: a Mazda RX-7 (FD3S)!

I took a photo of the car the day it was delivered. What do you think?

Hundreds of you guys got the right answer - Well done!
Sorry there's no prize this time...

But thanks so much for taking the time to send your answer...
As soon as we started accepting your answers and opinions you sent in absolutely hundreds! - I was really surprised!

Actually, there were some interesting and unexpected things written in your answers.

For example:

  • If it's the RX-7, you've probably got full aero, right? (Sorry. Not quite yet. I've just bought it...)
  • The Mazda RX-7 (FC3S). Unlucky! So close!
  • Your car must be an RX-7 (FD3S)! (almost, almost! the name's just a bit different)

There were many more answers, and I had a lot of fun looking over them all!

I also read a lot of heart-warming comments written by people who said that they were saving up to buy a Mazda RX-7.

Unfortunately, it seems like there are less and less sports cars being made these days, but if you guys keep up your enthusiasm and love of sports cars, maybe we will see lots more sports cars coming out soon.

Saying that, as you can see from the photo, my car still looks pretty normal.
I feel like asking Kitami from the first story in Story Mode to perform a "boost-up" on it as soon as possible.

Dress-ups for the RX-7 in Ghost Battle Mode are of course one way for me to check my car's appearance, but just now I'm researching the coolest look for my car by exclusively playing Story Mode in Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune 3.
As you might have guessed, my favorite is the Akasaka Straight.

The production when the characters appear at the start of the story is particularly cool.
Even those of you who have cleared the story already should go back for another look.
(I have already cleared it with my "Unaruu" card, but I'm in the middle of battling it out again now.)

The story features a three-car lineup: Devil Z, Blackbird and the RX-7, and has many parts like racing along the expressway that have me shouting out every time I play.

And...the rival cars get twice as fast the second time round ! Twice the fun ! This story lets you feel something a little different from normal.

I can't recommend more that you try replaying a story that you have cleared once already.
Well, that's all for this week!! See you!!
