Reading the rules I see something called geargacha, Since I am not a runner of this game It's not something I have heard of.

Would 3ds version fall under arcade? or would it be under a new category ?


Sorry, was away for AGDQ so just saw this.

Gear Gacha is rapidly switching gears, which locks the current speed no matter the terrain or how hard you're turning. I know this works on the Arcade, Genesis and Saturn versions of the game. Unsure otherwise.

The 3DS version will likely need its own category to be made, as it has a bunch of unlockables, runs at 60fps, and is different. Most ports of the original vary enough that it's required. That's not a biggie, happy to make a category if you'd like to submit a run for it.
