New Rally-X was delisted from the Xbox 360 in North America by the end of January 2019. This coincides with the termination of Nintendo’s Virtual Console and Wii Shop Channel for the Nintendo Wii where New Rally-X was available exclusively in Japan.
However, as the game remains available on Xbox 360 in all other regions where it was released, it would seem to indicate that a technical or ratings-related issue arose specific to the North American version of the game. Bandai NAMCO appears to have chosen not to resolve the issue and instead delisted the title in that region alone.
About the Game
Although the game is included in the 2008 retail release of Namco Museum Virtual Arcade the disc does not contain New Rally-X. Rather, it unlocks the downloadable Xbox Live Arcade version which may or may not be accessible as of 2020.
“Collect all the flags while avoiding enemy cars! With new features such as the Lucky Flag, which awards you points depending on your remaining fuel. Collect the Special Flag to double the points of all remaining flags! NEW RALLY-X, the sequel to RALLY-X, was released in 1981. It featured new courses and adjustments to the enemy cars, improving the overall game balance, as well as new graphics and BGM!“
