Hey there, Racers!

I'm JL, a KartRider: Drift developer.

In today’s Dev Blog, I would like to talk about the development of the Driving Assistance System.

We confirmed that Racers playing KartRider: Drift for the first time during the Closed Beta Tests sometimes had difficulty drifting or momentarily losing control of their kart. Various pieces of feedback were given by many Racers, suggesting a system where they could easily practice and learn.

We analyzed your feedback and thought about what beginning Racers need to adapt to racing. We decided that an assistance system is needed for difficult driving situations.

We are developing the Driving Assistance System to allow Racers to experience the fun nature of KartRider: Drift more easily.

1. Driving Assistance Features
- Displaying a kart driving line
- Displaying a track course guide line
- Automatically returning a Racer to the track after leaving it

2. Drifting Assistance Features
- Optimal zone for drifting
- Drifting direction assistance

3. Other Features
- Racing direction adjustment after track collision
- The goal of the Driving Assistance System is to take player usability into consideration while not ruining the fun of driving in KartRider: Drift.

The system is not based solely on the thoughts of the dev team. Since we need to make sure that it's a system that's both helpful and fun for our Racers to use, we are planning to have a small Focus Group Test to check this once the development is complete.

When we meet again on the tracks, whether it is your first time experiencing KartRider: Drift or not, we will do our best development work in order for you to enjoy the fun of racing in KartRider: Drift.

Thank you for always taking an interest in the Dev Blogs and for leaving lots of feedback in the community. Please continue to show your love and interest and share with us on the here or on Discord.

    Thanks for the assistance system for novices like me.

    Xbox Series S/X is almost here.
    Developers should be developing KRD models/textures with "Optimized for Xbox Series X|S" in mind.
    See Official Microsoft Table here: https://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/optimized#thetable.
    Xbox Series S/X users should all play (be pooled) together, so that older crap systems don't slow them down.
    The year is 2020 and KRD should reflect that.
    KRD should have a multiplayer lifespan of 3+ years.
