WELCOME TO YUMEZI, OF MAKURI ISLANDS
Brand new roads. Same fast fun. Say hello to Yumezi, the tranquil countryside within the Makuri Islands. Inspired by a collective lifelong love of Japanese tradition and pop culture, this brand new world is primed for future expansion, with all-new routes and regions to come.
ANSWER THE CALL
There’s a certain magic to Yumezi, a land where fields and forests brim with hidden life. For years it’s been quiet, peaceful...but not anymore. Beneath its placid surface, the land rumbles with a new spirit. Of competition. Of adventure. Take off across green hills, explore a festival market, get lost in misty woods, experience a traditional village castle, and so much more. It’s all waiting to be discovered.
