Wangan Midnight: Maximum Tune 3 DX Plus is a racing arcade game that was released by Bandai Namco Games in 2010; as its name implies, it's the seventh title in the Wangan Midnight series. As in its four immediate precursors, the name "Maximum Tune" refers to "Maximum Tuning Memory Cards" (which were dispensed by the cabinet) - and data stored on a card for any of those earlier entries can also be transferred over to one for this game. Furthermore, there are forty selectable cars that can be tuned up to improve the ways they look and perform as well as what they are capable of; much like in Maximum Tune 2, 3, and 3 DX, it is also only possible to tune a car up in Story Mode (where original characters from the manga comics the games are based upon appear as CPU-controlled opponents, and the player will have to beat them in a race). Additional modes in this particular instalment include Alter-Ego Battle Mode (for which an alternate version of the player's chosen car is created and they have to race against it, and it is once again also possible for the player to perform "Dress-Up Tuning" and change their car's appearance here), 10-Person Mode (in which ten CPU-controlled opponents will appear one after another as the player beats them over five courses), Intrusion Mode (in which up to four people can play simultaneously when a maximum of four one-player cabinets, or a pair of two-player cabinets, are linked together), and Time Attack (in which the player has to select a track and try to complete a full lap of it in the fastest time) - and much like Maximum Tune 2, 3, and 3 DX, players can again attain "levels" according to their progress, and "titles" determined by their style of playing (of which there are over 5000 combinations). Yet again, after attaining a new title (which will be displayed in the screen's bottom-right corner during gameplay) the game will ask a player if they want to overwrite their current one on their Maximum Tuning Memory Card; as such, if they happen to prefer their current title that they had earned at a previous date, it is possible for them to decline.
