Ridge Racer: Drift has launched on all the major US mobile networks (and on most of the major mobile platforms, as well).

Drift takes the classic power-slide handling model of the arcades and transplants it to the smaller screen, featuring six new tracks and nine cars to blast around them in.

Should you get to the point where beating the AI drivers isn’t enough, the game also comes with in-game leaderboards and the ability to post to your Facebook account.

We reviewed the title when it first appeared on UK networks back in May and found it to be ‘worthy of consideration’ before pinning the Pocket Gamer Bronze Award on its bonnet.

Ridge Racer: Drift is out now for Java, Brew, RIM, and Windows Mobile handsets.
