Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune 5 (also known as Maximum Tune 5 in North America, or simply Maxi 5 or Maxitune 5) is an arcade racing video game developed and published by Namco and based on the Wangan Midnight manga. It is the fifth game in the Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune series and the eighth entry of the Wangan Midnight arcade series. This is also the first game in the Wangan Midnight series to be officially relased in North America since Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune 3DX+. Just like Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune 4 in North America, this is the first game in the Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune series to be skipped in Mainland China until the next update of Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune 5.

TriviaEdit

  • The North American version of this game was vastly different from Asia and Japan regions. Due to the lack of Wangan Midnight name in the title, all of the previous games' soundtrack whose logos represented in the game were edited and given retronyms. All the previous Maximum Tune games were edited to remove the "Wangan Midnight" part of the title, with the exception of Wangan Midnight R, which was simply renamed to just Midnight R in the style of edited Maximum Tune logos (generic white text). In opposite of Gemballa vehicles being removed from the International versions of Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune until 3DX+, Toyota Celsior and Aristo were removed and as a result, Gatchan and Mrs. Sasaki's car were replaced by Crown Athlete and Chaser Tourer V respectively.
