Liverpool, 26th August, 2015: Award winning indie developer and publisher Playrise Digital today announced a new partnership with 'YO! Sushi', the popular UK Japanese Sushi restaurant chain. YO! Sushi are endorsing one of the race tracks in new PS4 title: ‘Table Top Racing: World Tour’. The ‘YO! Sushi Raceway’ is inspired by YO Sushi's clean, contemporary, colourful interior design ethos that has become synonymous with their brand and restaurants.
“We love sushi at Playrise and lunchtimes at Liverpool One's ‘YO! Sushi’ branch have become a regular treat for the Playrise team.” commented Nick Burcombe CEO, Playrise Digital, "In the first 'Table Top Racing' game (iOS, Android and Vita), we created a more traditional style oriental themed circuit which turned out to be a firm favourite with gamers. For ‘Table Top Racing: World Tour’ we wanted to take this theme to the next level in terms of design, interactivity and sheer visual fun which makes YO! Sushi and their unique style a perfect fit!”
"We’re so excited to be part of Table Top Racing: World Tour by Playrise” commented Liz Norris of YO! Sushi “The circuit they’ve been creating really brings the spirit of YO! Sushi to life, it’s amazing how they’ve managed to capture it in the game! We can’t wait to give the final version a spin!“
Table Top Racing: World Tour is an all-new, AAA quality, next-generation gaming experience launching for PlayStation®4, Q4 2015, with other platforms to follow. Check out some brand new in development screenshots and art of TTR: World Tour here.

About YO! Sushi
Founded in 1997, YO! Sushi brought the concept of a Japanese ‘kaiten’ sushi bar that delivered food to customers via a conveyor belt travelling 8cm per second to the masses, and became the original and most famous sushi brand in the UK. YO! Sushi was a brand new concept in dining and catapulted Londoners into the 21st century which made us the most talked about dining experience. Our customers queued around the block as we gave the capital a slice of Urban Tokyo.
