Game Freak SEGA 1986 AM 24 show feature

Here’s a cool double page spread from a 1986 Japanese games magazine called Game Freak.
It features coverage from the 1986 Japan Amusement Expo where OutRun was unveiled to the industry and public.

There’s a few photos of people trying out OutRun for the first time and you will see a photo of the OutRun game card and dispenser that I posted about last year.
If you missed it here’s a picture below

It’s a pretty cool card, this version was only available at the show.

Would you of loved to go to this show? Or was you lucky enough to attend back in 1986?

SEGA OutRun 1986 Game Card [Update 25/7]

SEGA AM 24th Show Game Card

Below is a picture of a SEGA OutRun game card. Looks like it may of been given out at the show in 1986.
Not sure if it’s a phone card or a entry card but I doubt it was used as a game credit swipe card that modern arcades use these days.
I have a similar Sonic one from London’s Trocadero Arcade back in the early 90’s.
Looks nice though with the OutRun graphic being the same as the one that can be seen on the front of some stand up machines.
