JDM: Rise of the Scorpion Teaser

JDM: Rise of the Scorpion premieres on July 18, 2024. Get ready to play this standalone introduction to JDM: Japanese Drift Master. Visit the fictional Japanese prefecture - Guntama, which is inspired by various authentic locations. The realistic racing experience merges with a story shown through cutscenes in the form of manga panels. Watch the latest teaser that will let you fully immerse yourself in the JDM world.

About JDM: Rise of the Scorpion:

The upcoming prologue is a game introducing the narrative aspect of JDM: Japanese Drift Master. Players will discover the story of Hatori Hasashi and his way of becoming the titular ‘Scorpion’. An exemplary student and a son of a traditional Japanese family, he brings his pride and arrogance to the racetrack, where various rivals await.

World of JDM

The story of JDM: Japanese Drift Master takes place in a fictional Japanese prefecture, Guntama. This area is inspired by the mountainous region of Honshu. Players who are familiar with Japan's famous drifting routes will find many resemblances to the real world.

Placing racetracks and areas close together that are far apart in reality, allowed us to create a dynamic and diverse open map. In JDM: Rise of the Scorpion, players will see only a part of the world we prepared for the full version of JDM: Japanese Drift Master.

Storytelling and characters

Players will experience a racing game focused on story and unique narration, without using typical cutscenes. Instead, hand-drawn manga pages featuring the protagonists will bring the characters to life.

However, this remains a game about racing. Drift and grip events featured throughout the playthrough will drive the heroes' story forward. In addition to Hatori, players will meet an ensemble of side characters who will become important parts of the rising of the Scorpion.

Aoi Ishida is a girl from a traditional family who has known Hatori since they were children. When they start dating, she supports him in every way she can, especially on the track.
Ayumi Kurama is a rich girl raised by a single father who fulfills her every financial whim. She is successful in everything she does, including drifting. However, if victory is at stake, her friendship with Hatori may be at risk.
Satoru Hayashi very quickly becomes Scorpion’s main rival. He is cheerful and reckless, but his family is poor, so he does not feel like a part of his school. Satoru’s car belonged to his uncle, a famous drifter. 
Kaori Kato is Aoi’s best friend. This artistic girl works at a nearby paint shop. Independent and progressive, she always supports Aoi, even if she believes Hatori isn't a good boyfriend.

Uncover new locations

The open world map of the upcoming prologue will be enhanced by previously unseen interesting areas and challenging roads.

Drive back to the winding mountain roads around Haikama Lake, known from the JDM: Japanese Drift Master demo version. See how the area feels in this extraordinary racing experience.
Take the route through Tengai Forest. It provides an ideal environment to practice and refine your driving skills. Take challenging turns and corners and learn how testing drift can be.

Every new location is a source of adventures and challenges. The dynamic weather system will make races and events a fresh experience.
