More footage of Raw Thrills' Super Bikes 2

August 6, 2010

Today is just brewing with arcade news to talk about! BMIGaming has posted a longer clip of their footage taken from the recent AAMA Gala and this time it’s from the new Super Bikes 2 by Raw Thrills. This shows that the game has 9 tracks and 12 bikes to choose from and it shows the locations you can race in (including a place from my home state, Moab, Utah).Perhaps the most unique track shown is a space level, where you travel from one planet in the solar system to another and it looks really good, especially the part where you ride through Saturn’s rings. Perhaps Raw Thrills should consider a Starfox-esque space shooter for their next game 😛

Here’s a direct link for HD goodness.

As promised here is some video footage from the recent AAMA Distributor Gala, taken by the fine folks at BMIGaming (website here, video channel here). In the video you’ll see the first footage from the new Terminator Salvation cabinets(32″ & 100″), Super Bikes 2 (we found out after the video was produced that it DOES NOT carry the Fast and Furious license so it’s just Super Bikes 2), AVATAR Pinball, Dead Heat, Rambo, HUMMER MDX. Enjoy!

Here is a longer video of AVATAR Pinball by BMIGaming

The AAMA (American Amusement Machine Association) held it’s 7th annual Distributor Gala this week, an event that generally gives us a sneak peek into what to expect in arcades in the fall. Replay Magazine was there and took plenty of pictures from the event, giving us a good look at these new games. You can see all of the pictures here on Replay’s Facebook page; click the link below to see the video arcade highlights, including the new Super Bikes 2, Dead Heat and AVATAR Pinball.

Raw Thrills to release Super Bikes 2 this September

Prototype rendering of Super Bikes 2

Newsfeed 885 via

A short time ago when I heard about the creation of a new, smaller cabinet for Terminator Salvation (which we still haven’t been able to obtain any photos of) I also heard that Raw Thrills’ was updating their Super Bikes game (originally released in 2007) with a new cabinet and a major update to the software. What I wasn’t told is that the update was actually a full sequel to their wildly successful motorbike game(a game that sold over 9000 units worldwide, the source which originally told me about the new cabinet suggested).

As for Super Bikes 2, the first obvious upgrade from the original we see is the addition of a 42″ LCD screen (same thing Namco’s Nirin uses). The graphics will be getting an upgrade, there will be more tracks than the original had I am told, but for now that is all we know. I imagine that they will maintain the aspect of pulling off stunts in mid-air but we will need to wait and see. Super Bikes 2 is scheduled for a release in September.

UPDATE: The Fast and Furious license is not being used on this game so it’s just Super Bikes 2, sorry about the error earlier.
