Rave Racer is an arcade racing game created by Namco. It could be played by 2 people per cabinet for up to 8 players total via cabinet links.[3] It was released on July 16, 1995 for the Namco System 22 arcade platform. It is the third arcade title in the Ridge Racer series, and the sequel to Ridge Racer and Ridge Racer 2. Additions to the game were 2 new tracks, 12 songs, force feedback steering and improved car and track graphics.[4] Track designs also allow multiple routes to be chosen around the course.

A Microsoft Windows version was originally under development for the PowerVR graphics processor,[5] but was later cancelled, thus no games in the Ridge Racer series were released for Windows until Unbounded.
