Wipeout 2097, known as Wipeout XL (ワイプアウトXL) in Japan, is the sequel to Wipeout, released among other systems for the Sega Saturn. The Saturn version was not released in North America.

Gameplay

While the previous Wipeout game took place in 2050 and concerned the F3600 anti-gravity racing league, 2097 predictably takes place 47 years later in 2097 with the faster F5000 league.

Versions

Like its predecessor, the Saturn version of Wipeout 2097 lacks the licensed music heard in the PlayStation version of the game, instead being composed entirely by Psygnosis' house band, Cold Storage. It runs at a slightly lower resolution and lacks the transparency effects seen in the PlayStation version, but otherwise retains all the features of its sibling. Loading times are also quicker on the Saturn.
