Initial D: Arcade Stage Zero is a 2017 arcade racing game based on the Initial D series. It is the ninth 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 and background music were both taken from the Legends trilogy with new designs created for characters not featured in the Legends series, replacing the series staple Eurobeat with J-rock (although several Eurobeat songs can be unlocked for use).Cut-scenes and dialogue were also completely omitted. Rain conditions are also not featured.
