    The game should not be confused with the recent PSN/XBLA release, which is actually an update of the original arcade version.


    There are eight courses in Daytona USA, each of which have a mirror, reverse, and mirror reverse version. Five courses return from previous games and three tracks are new for this version.

    Three Seven Speedway (returning from the original arcade game)

    Dinosaur Canyon (returning from the original arcade game)

    Sea-Side Street Galaxy (returning from the original arcade game)

    National Park Speedway (returning from Daytona USA: Championship Circuit Edition)

    Desert City (returning from Daytona USA: Championship Circuit Edition)

    Circuit Pixie (exclusive new course)

    Rin Rin Rink (exclusive new course)

    Mermaid Lake (exclusive new course)


    There was only one car in the original Daytona USA.In CCE there were nine different cars to choose from, each with different attributes for Grip, Acceleration, and Top Speed. Selectable cars return in this version but with an entirely new cast of ten cars to choose from. Four of the cars are available from the start, and the other six are unlockable through fulfilling certain conditions.
