Even if titlescreen says 1993, Daytona USA was released in March 1994.
The first game to come out on Sega Model 2 hardware, worth mentioning above and beyond anything else due to the fact that it is the number one grossing game of all time.
Daytona also caused and still causes a problem in the arcade industry, Sega had come up with such a 'killer app' that no other game from them or any other company since has matched it in terms of profitability, leading to the phrase heard from most site operators, 'It's no Daytona'.
This game contains statues of Sonic the Hedgehog and Jeffrey from "Virtua Fighter
Toshiba EMI released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Daytona USA / B-Univ - TYCY-5392) on September 7, 1994.
