Genki Racing Project new title countdown website launched

Countdown ends on January 5.

Genki Racing Project

Japanese game developer Genki has launched a countdown teaser website for the next entry in its Genki Racing Project series.

The Genki Racing Project consists of Kaido Battle and Shutoko Battle titles, which have been localized under various names, including Tokyo Xtreme Racer: Drift and Import Tuner Challenge. The latest release was Shutoko Battle X (Import Tuner Challenge) for Xbox 360 in 2006.

Given the URL to the countdown,, we’re expecting a new Shutoko Battle X title. Though the page contains meta tags for both Shutoko Battle and Kaido Battle. The countdown ends on January 5.

Update 2:35 a.m.: Famitsu App, Famitsu’s smartphone application-dedicated website, posted about the countdown website, meaning that it might turn out to be a smartphone game.
