Need for Speed: Underground (Arcade) is an arcade alternative release of Need for Speed: Underground developed by Global VR and published by Konami.
It was made available three years after the GameCube, PlayStation 2, Xbox and PC releases, with a release in Japan on December 26, 2006.
The arcade rendition of Need for Speed: Underground features only three race modes: Circuit, Drag, and Drift. Players can jump in and compete against computer opponents or local friends across a networked series of cabinets. Included in each cabinet, is a force-feedback steering wheel, as well as a 6-gear manual shifter that can be used if preferred over an automatic transmission.
Players are also able to set up connected cabinets for tournament play, and can partake in local-run and national competitions. The cabinets can also be connected to the internet, allowing players to view their best times and see how they rank against others. Players are able to enter these tournaments using Global VR's Players' Card, and can also customise their vehicles and gain access to additional gameplay features.
