3.Select Install using the APKinstaller app.

4.install the file to your device.

5.Open the APKinstaller again and select ‘Manage’

I think SEGA released this as part of a series of game catalogues for the Mark III. Each one would feature new release games and include the current catalogue of games available.
I really love the Japanese artwork on these catalogues.

OutRun Bootlegs

Philko released the bootleg arcade board for OutRun with the BETA logo in the game instead of SEGA.

As well as the bootleg boards there are also some cabinets out there that aren’t official SEGA machines.

Here some pics below of non-official machines.

[Above- This stand up machine at a glance looks like a official machine, but closer inspection shows no SEGA logo on the side art. Lots of smaller differences in the monitor bezel ,control panel, wheel, and front panel. Source – OutRun Re-assembler

20130714-223846.jpg
[Above- Another bootleg found in Germany. Again a similar image of the original side art without the SEGA logo. This one has some strips down the front panel not to dissimilar from the original.

[Above- the latest find from Arcade Italia
A sitdown variation of the standard sitdown arcade machine.

With most of these variation it’s unclear where they came from.
Were they bootleg production replicas or were they created by OutRun fans who couldn’t have an original machine.

If you have any info on bootleg OutRun machines, own one or have any info to share drop me an email.

Painted by artist Maya from Madrid,Spain Yu Suzuki would be proud to wear this to collect his next Award.
It’s great how Maya has managed to replicate the game in pixel form.

Yu Suzuki GameWorks Vol.1

20130630-215349.jpg
Gameworks volume 1 is a glossy Japanese released hard back book focusing on Yu Suzuki’s game history.

Release during the SEGA Dreamcast era it featured a GD-ROM with 5 of Yu’s classics sprite scalers including a version of OutRun with an unfortunately modified Ferrari.

The book is totally in Japanese so if your not familiar with Japanese the only thing you will get out of it is the game disk and the gorgeous photos and archive pictures.

So let’s take a look at some of the OutRun specific content.

20130915-133037.jpg

Below – The book featured a first time release of a drawing of the Standard sit down arcade.

20130629-234151.jpg

This was then accurately presented at the 1986 Jamma Show in Japan (Below)

20130629-234416.jpg
As you can see below The original drawing seen in the book varies to the production cabinet. The production version dropped the OutRun writing from the base.

20130629-234741.jpg

There’s also a nice concept drawing of the what the Deluxe cabinet may of turned out like (Below)

20130630-214756.jpg
Think I prefer the final production design.

20130630-215159.jpg

There are some nice photos of the machines too and they are in perfect condition.

I picked up this japanese book when it was first released for ยฃ70 from a Video Games Importer in the UK.
You can still pick it up now from Specialist import shops or eBay.
The price hasn’t changed too much over the years, you can still grab it from ยฃ70 – ยฃ100.
