Gran Turismo 5 to get ‘Academy Edition’ re-release

Sony is to re-release hit racer Gran Turismo 5 and give it a brand new name in the process – Gran Turismo 5: Academy Edition.

The SKU will include all the DLC released for the game to date. Specifically, that’s three car packs and two course packs.

It will also boast an added extra – the Nissan GTR driven in this year’s Nurburgring 24 Hour Race by none other Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi.

Most importantly, the game will have a discount RRP of 19.99. It will be released for PS3 on September 26th.

"GT Academy has captured the imagination of many Gran Turismo fans,” Yamauchi stated.

"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."
