Pro Concept? Pro fact sheet

The facts and figures behind THQ's GT Advance 3: Pro Concept Racing have become a bit clearer this afternoon, and we've even got some new screenshots for you. You lucky people.

Originally announced in November, back then all we knew was that it had "more than 90 of the world's top cars" (97 total, actually), 46 tracks (46 is quoted at the top, 44 at the bottom in this latest PR) and various weather climates ("such as rain", it says here).

The rest of the release quests and indeed perhaps manages to shrug off the "totally uninspiring" label we branded the game with last year, thanks in part to various promised graphical effects (headlights, shimmering street lights, other environmental aspects), improvements to track detail, physics and sound effects, and in part to a new "Drift Combo" mini-game, which demands the most possible consecutive powerslides/drifts to unlock additional cars and courses. Ridge Racer fans bolt upright.

And since the Japanese version is already available, THQ has pointed out that the US (and presumably PAL) version will get a two-player link cable mode. Jolly good.

Whether it can live up to surprise office fave V-Rally 3's GBA stranglehold, though, remains to be seen.
