January 23rd, 2008 by Arjan Olsder Posted in New Releases | No Comments »

Celebrating the 25th anniversary of Pole Position, Namco Networks now
announced the release of Pole Position Remix for Apple’s iPod.

Pole Position Remix is based on Namco’s Pole Position II mobile game, but is fitted with totally new gameplay elements, graphics and soundtracks to fit the iPod. Also, the game is fitted with an exclusive to iPod course to race on.

Pole Position Remix is available on 5th generation iPods, iPod Nano with video and the iPod Classic and will be distributed through iTunes.

Each track in Pole Position: Remix can be played across four types of racing: practice, single race, grand prix and sudden death. Points are earned for the distance traveled and for passing enemy cars. If players race well they can unlock reversed or mirrored versions of the tracks and themes for tracks, cars and billboards, including those based on favorite Namco games such as PAC-MAN. Players can also choose to listen to their music library on their iPod while playing the game. Exclusive to the iPod, players can take advantage of Pole Position: Remix’s album art feature which randomly displays album art on roadside billboards from the player’s personal music collection. The feature will automatically display album art from the song that is currently playing as well as randomly pull album art from other songs in the player’s iPod.

“Pole Position: Remix takes the classic game play of one of Namco’s most popular racing series and combines it with new themes, designs and more integrated game play,” said Scott Rubin, vice president of sales and marketing, Namco Networks. “The iPod Click Wheel is a perfect control pad for steering in a racing game and the device’s portability gives consumers access to this quality game experience anywhere, anytime.”
