Wangan Midnight: Maximum Tune 6 is a racing arcade game, that was released by Bandai Namco Games in 2018; as its name implies, it is the twelfth title in the Wangan Midnight series. As in its nine immediate predecessors, the name "Maximum Tune" refers to the "Maximum Tuning Memory Cards" which were dispensed by the cabinet - and data stored on a card for any of those earlier entries may also be transferred over to one for this game. As in Maximum Tune 5 DX Plus, there are eighty-eight selectable cars that can be tuned up to improve the way they look and perform (as well as what they are capable of); furthermore, like in Maximum Tune 2, 3, 3 DX, 3 DX Plus, 4, 5, 5 DX and 5 DX Plus, it's also only possible to tune a car up in Story Mode (where the original characters from the manga comics the games are based on shall appear as CPU-controlled opponents and the player needs to beat them in a race). Additional modes for this instalment include Alter-Ego Battle Mode (where an alternate version of the player's chosen car will be created and they'll have to run against it, and it is for the eighth time also possible for the player to perform "Dress-Up Tuning" and alter their selected car's appearance here), In-Store Intrusion Match Mode (which was originally just "Intrusion Mode" prior to the release of the aforementioned Maximum Tune 4 in 2011, for which up to four people can play simultaneously when a maximum of four single-player cabinets or a pair of two-player cabinets are linked together), and Time Attack (in which the player must select a track and try to complete a full lap of it in the fastest time) - and like Maximum Tune 2, 3, 3 DX, 3 DX Plus, 4, 5, 5 DX and 5 DX Plus, players can again attain "levels" determined by their progress, and "titles" determined by their style of playing (of which there are over 5000 combinations). For a ninth occasion, upon attaining a new title, which shall be shown in the bottom-right corner of the screen during gameplay, the game shall ask a player if they want to overwrite the one that's currently stored on their Maximum Tuning Memory Card; as such, if they happen to prefer their current title that they had earned at an earlier time, it's possible for them to decline. For a fifth time, when this title was new, any arcade operator acquiring a cabinet of it would also be given an upright "Wangan Terminal" with a touch panel that players could use for three minutes free of charge (however, if they had to use it for a longer time, they would have to insert a coin into it to continue) to check the data stored on their Memory Card and, if they so desired, replace the parts that they had received for their selected car in the game.
