OutRun features in 3D Thunderblade end credits

Thunderblade is probably one of the lesser loved games during the SEGA Super Scaler era but M2 have done a great job of the game and during the end credits there are many homages to classic SEGA games and characters.

OutRun is featured several times and below are a few fun OutRun clips to share.
Congratulations!

Recent OutRun pick up

Just thought I would share my recent OutRun item that I picked up at Auction.
It’s a 1986 SEGA game card from the 24th Amusement Show in Japan.

This show was where SEGA first showed OutRun to the press and public and the card could be dispensed from a vending machine and used from credits within the SEGA stand.

Here’s a write up from a while back HERE

SEGA Papercraft Arcade Machines

The first time I saw these I thought that they were immaculate original arcade machines and not paper models!

They look excellent with the female figurines housed in the cabinets.

The model creator has been selling these amazing pieces for ¥1000 ($10AU)

3DS receives another great SEGA classic

Out in Japan this week through the Nintendo eShop is M2 and SEGA’s classic helicopter sprite scaler Thunderblade.

Thunderblade is the 13th 3D release and we’ve not seen this game released on a console since the late 80’s / early 90’s.

Through Google Translate it seems that Yosuke Okunari (SEGA 3D project leader) has indicated this may be the last 3D release of the second wave of games. The 2nd wave included Afterburner, OutRun and also Fantasy Zone I & II.

Here’s a great line up of the original arcades that have had the 3DS treatment.

Hopefully this means that Europe, Australia and the U.S get the the second wave announced in the next few months.

To unlock Ryo and the OutRun car you need to complete a full string of weekly challenges….so hopefully if I chip away at it this week I should be able to unlock the OutRun car and do a further update.

I’ll hopefully have more photos soon 👍
