Star Wars: Episode I Racer (Dreamcast) Turns 21 Years Old

Hard to believe but Star Wars: Episode I Racer was launched on the SEGA Dreamcast 21 years ago today.  The Dreamcast is probably my favorite console of all- time despite it never living up to its potential.  The game was originally released for Windows in 1999 but the Dreamcast version is the one people have the most fond memories from.  The game recently received an HD re-release for the Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One in 2020.  Official original description:  Relive all the thrills and excitement of the Podracer sequence from Star Wars: Episode I. Hang on tight - with afterburners on, Podracers max out at a simulated 600 mph! Race in furious competition against 21+ opponents. Take on over 21 tracks on 8 unique worlds. Avoid hazards such as methane leaks, meteor showers and Tusken Raiders! Spectacular 3D environments. Vehicle sound effects and soundtrack taken directly from Episode I.
