Today Rockstar Games announced the North American and European release dates for the next-gen debut of the Midnight Club series. Midnight Club: Los Angeles will hit on September 9 and 12 for North America and Europe respectfully. Using Rockstar's RAGE engine, first featured in Rockstar Presents Table Tennis, the San Diego team has beautifully crafted Los Angeles in a day-and-night cycle complete with dynamic weather effects. Midnight Club: Los Angeles will also follow in Grand Theft Auto IV's lead, utilizing features from the newly established Rockstar Games Social Club.

For those who have yet to see the GDC trailer we have embedded it after the jump.
