Highsnobiety TV | ‘Gran Turismo’ Designer Kazunori Yamauchi Talks Racing Games

Following our interviews with some of this year’s most celebrated drivers at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, we present an insight into the future of racing games with Gran Turismo designer Kazunori Yamauchi. 2014’s iteration commemorated Mercedes-Benz’s 120 years in motorsport and, thus, invited the legendary Japanese game designer to reflect on the development of the automotive industry alongside the video game industry. With a Gran Turismo simulator in place, attendees had the chance to drive some of this year’s featured vehicles for themselves – albeit virtually.

Take a look above and find out more about this year’s event over at Mercedes-Benz.com.
