MF Ghost" takes place in a post-driver world. The majority of commercial cars in Japan are now self-driving, and the only people who bother to get behind the wheel are racers. Enter Kanata Livington, a half-British racer who graduated top of his class in racing academy, and who returns to Japan in order to conquer its MFG circuit. Like his mentor, the legendary Takumi Fujiwara, Kanata is a downhill specialist. In his trusty Red Toyota 86 GT, Kanata aims to become the circuit's top racer.
However, that is not the character's only motivation for coming to Japan — in fact, Kanata will also be searching for his long-lost father.
