Tokyo Xtreme Racer Drift 2, known as Kaido Racer 2 in Europe and as Kaido Touge no Densetsu in Japan, is a touge simulator created by Genki for the PlayStation 2. It was the 3rd game of the Kaido series. It featured laser traced touge courses and licensed cars.


The game is divided into several modes.

Conquest: This is the game's career mode. You race rivals at night while competing in various events during the day. The story is told through a BBS system, and a lot of the rivals are from Genki's Shutokoubatoru series. Many have different nicknames, as well as cars. Some rivals were cameo characters from various racing manga, such as Initial D, Over Rev, and Wangan Midnight.

Record Challenge: In this mode, you compete can set your own records in corner artist(drift), or time attack mode.

Record tour simulates a rallying event, by taking existing courses and adding dirt to it randomly. You are then given a score based on how you rank, which progresses to the next stage.

Simulation RealismEdit

The development of the game was supervised by former touge drivers, professional drifters and racers Manabu Orido, and Nobuteru Taniguichi. A lot of attention was given to making it feel like a touge simulator.

Steering Wheel SupportEdit

Tokyo Xtreme Racer Drift 2 supported the 900-degree force feedback features of the Driving force pro, to create a realistic driving experience. If a Logitech G25, Driving Force GT, or G27, it would read it like a Driving force pro. The faster countersteer of a higher grade wheel often helps with drifting.

-Kaido Touge no Densetsu, included some decals and the Gembella which was not included in Tokyo Xtreme Racer Drift 2. However, these can be accessed through live memory in the game. It is just that it is locked away from the US and Europe region. Maker-1 and Maker-2 do not exist at all though in the US build.

-This was the only Genki racing project game to support 900-degree steering and realistic force feedback from Logitech wheels.

-Tokyo Xtreme Racer Drift 2 is considered the most popular Genki racing project game among thextremeracers message board.

-Despite being called 2, it is really the 3rd game of the series, since Kaido Chain Reaction was never released in North America.

-A YouTube fan anime series: Mizuki no Densetsu is based mostly off the storyline of this game. It featured thextremeracer's community members, mixed with original characters, and in game rivals. Scenes were filmed directly from gameplay.

-rfactor's course: akagi touge by Project Kaido was based off the Tokyo Xtreme Racer Drift 2 version of the course. The name of the creator also paid tribute to the series with its production name.
