Even if you’re not necessarily a big fan of car games, you’ve probably heard the cult name of SEGA Rally. It was indeed in 1994 on arcade terminals that the saga hatched. With several versions on SEGA Saturn then PC in 1997, the racing game enjoyed great popularity.

The nostalgia under Unreal Engine 5

The purpose of the maneuver is obviously also to avoid the wrath of SEGA as to the use of the brand name.
