Back in the early 00’s there were so many people who were excited to see the Outrun series make a return for game consoles such as Xbox and PlayStation 2. However, for some reason we never got to see a GameCube port of Outrun 2 back in the early 00’s which raises the question why it never happened. When it comes down to racing games Outrun 2 could have definitely been a success on the Nintendo GameCube especially since there weren’t too many big racing titles that it would have to contend with. As far as racing titles were concerned two big games for the Nintendo GameCube that instantly comes to mind are Mario Kart Double Dash and F-Zero GX.
Outrun 2 may not have been quite as popular as Mario Kart Double Dash but it definitely could have got more attention than F-Zero GX on the Nintendo GameCube. While some could argue that Outrun 2 could have easily been overshadowed by Mario Kart Double Dash on the Nintendo GameCube the same could be said about the this game in comparison to titles such as Gran Turismo 3 on the PlayStation 2 or Midnight Club or Project Gotham Racing for Xbox during the early 00’s.
