If you’re a fan of anime, you possibly know about the Shinseki GPX Future Cyber Formula franchise, known in the west as Future GPX Cyber Formula. The latest OVA series, Future GPX Cyber Formula SIN debuted in Japan in 1998, and the franchise has been mostly dormant since.

Yet, it still has a lot of fans in Japan, and a team named Project YNP developed a brand new Cyber Formula SIN doujin game titled Future GPX Cyber Formula SIN Vier for PC that was released today at Summer Comiket held at Tokyo Big Sight in Japan.

The game also comes with virtual reality support for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, but a VR headset is not required.

Project YNP is actually a veteran of the field, as it developed and released multiple Cyber Formula doujin games since 2003.

If you’re not familiar with the term “Doujin Game” they’re basically titles created by small independent teams of fans, often (but not always) paying homage to established franchises without the official support of the owners of the IPs involved.

This one, though, actually draw the attention of the anime’s creators at Sunrise, that actually covered it on the official site of the franchise.

At the moment, the game will be made available at several hobby, anime, and video game stores in Japan, but hopefully, it will expand further.

If you want to see what it looks like, you can check out some official screenshots below (as official as screenshots of an unofficial game could be), alongside some gameplay footage courtesy of YouTube user calvintola.
