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.
