Zero4 Champ RR-Z (ゼロヨンチャンプ ダブルアール・ヅィー Double R Dzui Zero Yon Chanpu?)[3] is a 1995 racing video game developed by Media Rings for the Super Famicom, and is the sequel to Zero4 Champ RR.

Summary[edit]

Both of the players are trying to win a drag race.

Vehicle manufacturers in the game include Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Mitsuoka, Nissan, Subaru, and Toyota.[4]

This game is an anime-style racing video game with an extensive simulation mode.[4] Similar in premise to the Rocky III movie, the 18-year-old that the player controlled in Zero Champ RR became the champion of the Japanese Drag Racing World but was insulted.[4] As a result, he moved to a new city to start his drag racing career over from scratch.[4] Automatic transmission is now included but has a 0.5 second stall time between changing gears.[4]

There are three options on the title screen; the full story (involving the 18-year-old driver pursuing his dreams), a versus mode (allowing players to use all the automobiles available in the game), and a mini-story mode that allows players to play on episodic matches in selected high-priced racing vehicles (some of them costing almost one billion yen). An example of a playable mini-story would involve a Back to the Future-type scenario about going back 300 years in time to the year 1995 in order to beat a record in drag racing using a machine this is similar to the DeLorean time machine driven jointly by Doctor Emmett Brown and Marty McFly.[2]
