Daytona USA May Be Coming To A Video Game Console Near You (Again)

What's this?! A new rating for a Daytona USA video game? What could it mean?! If we're venturing guesses, we'll go with Sega reviving the classic arcade racer for an Xbox Live Arcade and/or PlayStation Network re-release.

But that's just an educated guess, based on the fact that Sega has already released games like Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi through Microsoft and Sony's respective digital distribution stores. An HD console release of Daytona USA, which is what we're inferring from a recent Australian classification board listing spotted by XBLA Fans, would certainly be welcome.

It's as good a candidate for an XBLA/PSN release as any in Sega's back catalog. The classic arcade racer has received multiple ports, including one for Windows PCs and one for the Sega Dreamcast.

We're checking in with Sega to see if they'd like to clear this one up.
