Story and Narrative Elements

“JDM: Rise of the Scorpion” introduces players to the story of Hatori “Scorpion” Hasashi, a young race driver from a traditional Japanese family. The game combines dynamic racing with narrative elements presented through hand-drawn manga panels, allowing for deeper immersion into the world of the characters.

The prologue also introduces a range of supporting characters who play significant roles in Hatori’s life:

  • Aoi Ishida: Hatori’s childhood friend from a traditional family, supporting him both on and off the track.
  • Ayumi Kurama: A wealthy girl who excels in everything, including drifting. Her relationship with Hatori becomes complicated as their rivalry on the track intensifies.
  • Satoru Hayashi: Hatori’s main rival, coming from a poor family, which fuels his determination to succeed in drifting.
  • Kaori Kato: Aoi’s best friend, an independent and artistic girl working in a paint shop. Although she believes Hatori is not the best choice for Aoi, she always supports her.

New Locations and Racing Conditions

The open-world map in “JDM: Rise of the Scorpion” will be enriched with new, intriguing areas and challenging tracks. Players can return to the winding mountain paths around Haikama Lake, familiar from the demo version, and try out new routes through the Tengai Forest, perfect for honing their driving skills.

The prologue introduces a dynamic weather system and a day-night cycle, adding realism to the races. Changing weather conditions, such as rain, fog, or monsoons, affect the cars’ grip, forcing players to adapt their driving style to the current conditions.
