Namco Bandai has announced a new entry in the popular Ridge Racer franchise for release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC - the first time the series will grace the PC platform.

Dubbed Ridge Racer Unbounded, the game is being developed by BugBear Entertainment - best known for the FlatOut series and the 2007 PSP version of Sega Rally.

Beyond that, however, Namco hasn't given too many details away and has only made vague promises that Unbounded will be different to other Ridge Racer games.

'It’s time to break not only the rules, but plenty of cars too,' says the synopsis in the press release. 'You think you’ve seen crashes? You’ve seen nothing. In Ridge Racer Unbounded your car is a high-octane wrecking ball.'

'Ridge Racer Unbounded has a new mantra – Drive, Destroy, Dominate – and it’s one that’s going to shake up the racing genre for good'

A teaser trailer has been released by Namco Bandai, but shows no gameplay footage - check it out below, then let us know your thoughts in the forums.
