Japanese developers never seem to release any racing games...

Most of those haven't seen recent installments.

They still exist.

Also the most recent Ridge Racer is western-made (from the producers of the FlatOut series, Bugbear Entertainment; also it's nothing like Ridge Racer at all).

There was a Japanese-developed Ridge Racer released almost immediately prior to that though, on Vita.

Because they realized no racing game can be better than GT, so they don't need to bother with it.

Isn't Gran Turismo made by JP developers the best series of them all
i dont think they care to much about racing over there or racing games

They have quite a few racetracks over there (Motegi, Suzuka, and Tsukuba to name some) and invented a few internationally recognized motorsport competitions (like gymkhana and drift racing).


yea its race tracks all over the world for the racers to race the competition not for the people but the fans of course racing is big in the US even Italy not so big in Japan gymkhana and drift racing is new and not so big compared to Nascar and F1 racing so game developers not being so big on it its no surprise

Well if that's the case I hope you all agree that it's just hubris on their part then and that people who actually pay attention would know that it's not true.
