Initial D: Arcade Stage Zero is a 2017 arcade racing game based on the Initial D series. It is the ninth and final game in the Initial D Arcade Stage series.


Zero featured many changes to the series formula, such as the introduction of a 6-speed shift (the series had previously used a sequential shifter). Character designs, with new stylized designs created for characters not originally featured, and background music were both taken from the Legends trilogy, replacing the series staple Eurobeat with J-rock (although several Eurobeat songs can be unlocked for use). Cutscenes and dialogue were also completely omitted. Rain conditions are also not featured.
