GT 64: Championship Edition is a racing video game for the Nintendo 64. It was released in Japan as City Tour GrandPrix: Zen Nihon GT Senshuken with two new Japanese Exclusive tracks in 1998. Hence its title, it was an official licensed game to All-Japan GT Championship, featuring cars and drivers of the 1997 season.[1] GT and Grand Tour our references to long distance traveling such as in the traditional version of the Grand Tour. It was the final game ever published by Ocean Software.[citation needed]

Despite the name, it is otherwise unrelated to Kaneko's Hyper Battle Game: Zen Nihon GT Senshuken. Instead, it is related to Imagineer's GT Racing.


the North American version follows closely of what players would play in NASCAR games. it features racing tracks around europe and has a typical ranking system, comparable to Mario Kart.
