At last, it's here. Four new episodes, two of which have already aired in Japan May 16th, the remaining two on June 22nd. Fifth Stage ended in a cliffhanger, time to see how the story ends.
There will also be no less than three new movies, the first of which will air this August.

The trailer at the site makes it rather obvious that the movies re-tell Takumi's story from the beginning, but of course with heavily improved visuals over the originals. The original CGI from way back in 1998 has aged a lot so it can certainly use a do-over. I don't know if they're re-telling just First Stage, but it seems like a fair guess. Squeezing all of the six stages into three hour-and-a-half -movies would most likely not work at all, and First Stage has some of the more iconic races in the series anyway.
