Los Angeles, CA, May 16, 1996 -- With sales fast approaching 750,000 units, the Micro Machines video game brand is one of the most successful names in arcade racing. From a first appearance on the N.E.S. in 1991, Micro Machines has bridged the console generations with Micro Machines V3 set to launch this winter on PlayStation.

A 2-year long in-house development program from Codemasters, a leading European games publisher, has resulted in a game where the sheer adrenaline factor grips games players by the seat of their pants and takes them for a ride of a lifetime.

Micro Machines V3 is the ultimate competitive challenge which takes any hardcore racing game fan and, quite literally, cuts them down to size! Miniaturized to become the drivers of the famous scale vehicles that are the Micro Machines toys, up to four simultaneous players have the task of beating up to eight other road maniacs on chaotic circuits around a house and garden packed with obstacles and hazards.

The dynamic, fluid game play that Micro Machines series of games is renowned for is complemented better than ever before with 50 true 3D-modelled and texture-mapped racing circuits scenarios: Take a spin around the breakfast table littered with milk cartons and syrup spills, try for a dare-devil leap from a dining table onto the floor (avoiding the pet cat!), or hit the gas as you drive around garden paths, quickly leaping into a speedboat to negotiate the garden pond!

Thirty turbo-charged vehicles are featured, each with distinctive and different performance abilities. Sport cars, formula one cars, power boats, combat tanks, buggies and helicopters are just some of the authentically-modelled vehicles included.

Micro Machines is famous in Europe as "The most playable game in the world", and Micro Machines 2 received the perfect 100% rating for its outstanding game play from the UK's Gamemaster magazine when it launched in Winter 1994. Two years on and Codemasters delivers Micro Machines V3 - the ultimate multi-layer race experience by which others will be judged.
