Ridge Racer Unbounded Looks Decidedly Un-Ridge Racer-ish

Namco has announced the next console version of their iconic racing franchise: Ridge Racer Unbounded.

Don't get too excited though, this is not your granma's Ridge Racer. Development duties have been handed to Bugbear Entertainment, responsible for (or "guilty of"--whichever you prefer) the FlatOut series and the slightly better Sega Rally Revo.

“Ridge Racer Unbounded is a fresh take on one of the most important racing franchises in video game history,” said Olivier Comte, VP Marketing, Sales & Publishing at Namco Bandai Europe. “As such, we're treating it with the reverence it deserves, and with the talented Bugbear team at the helm we're confident of delivering a game fans new and existing will get a big destructive kick out of.”

Based on the trailer below, it seems Namco's been smoking a little bit too much of the Criterion peace pipe. Also, what's up with the terrible character CG? What century is this?
