Gran Turismo 5 Academy Edition Announced

Posted on July 25, 2012 AT 07:35am

Sony has announced that it will be releasing an Academy Edition of Polyphony Digital’s Gran Turismo 5, which includes all previously released DLC for the title.

The re-release is scheduled to hit stores September 25 and contains all post-launch DLC, including the Complete Pack (Car Pack, Course Pack, Special Paint Pack, and Racing Gear Pack), Car Pack 2, Car Pack 3, Course Pack 2, and the Nissan GTR.

“GT Academy has captured the imagination of many Gran Turismo fans,” said series creator Kazunori Yamauchi. “It is exciting to watch what Lucas Ordóñez, Jordan Tresson, Jann Mardenborough and Bryan Heitkotter in the USA, are achieving in their new racing careers with Nissan.”

“People can now see that it is possible to make the switch from being a fast gamer to become a real racing driver. We wanted to mark the tremendous success of GT Academy with the very latest version of GT5.”
