The player can select between single play, network play, and simulation modes.[4] This was the only Pippin @WORLD title to be released in the United States with multiplayer support.[5] The disc also contains "Red Book" Audio CD tracks that are played back during gameplay.[6]

Japanese version for Pippin and Power Macintosh.

The Japanese release for Pippin Atmark was advertised as also being compatible with Power Macintosh.[7] A demo version was included with the Pioneer MPC-LX200 series, which was released in Japan on July 1, 1996. Pioneer, like Bandai, was among the few Japanese companies that obtained a license from Apple Computer to build Macintosh-compatible systems.[8]

Racing Days was one of few titles also released by Bandai Digital Entertainment as a launch title for the Pippin @WORLD in the United States. A separate Macintosh version had been scheduled for a U.S. release in January 1997,[1] which was then pushed back to August 1997.[9]

An updated version, Racing Days R, was released for Macintosh by Feral Interactive in 1999 and was ported to Pocket PC by Kitt Peak in 2001.[10][11]
