Storm-G, Sega's latest amusement attraction game ride

If there is one thing Sega loves, it’s making arcade titles that are also amusement rides in and of themselves. They are continuing this trend with their latest offering called Storm-G, a bobsleding game “of the future” where you can reach high speeds and the seat can spin around in 360° on one axis. The unit uses two joysticks and can apparently can seat two people in one unit, which are labelled as “SG-360″, probably a homage of sorts to the old R360. The in-game graphics look excellent and while there is no indication of it, I wonder if this will be one of the first games to use the new Ringwide or Ringedge hardware (whichever it is supposed to be called).

8 of these will be installed at Sega’s Joypolis in Tokyo, and I imagine it will be made available to other amusement parks down the line.
