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!

OutRun Restoration Project by Ray Barley (Aus)

Ray picked up an Australian LAI OutRun cabinet this year when he saw it on Gumtree going cheap. Here’s some pictures of the condition when he picked it up.

As you can see the whole machine needed a good clean, the side art was shot and some of the features like the screen bezel and steering wheel emblem need work.

Several months later Ray sent me these photo and I was amazed at the transformation.

It’s great to see a good clean upright LAI with the red side panels , front coin and pedal surround variation, there’s definitely not many left around.

Looking at the screenshot released by SEGA it looks like we will have the option for female characters to take the lead and drive.

As usual it’s blue sky’s, palm trees, clear blue water and red Ferrari’s that give the game that SEGA look and feel straight away.

From the release picture OutRun 3 is looking pretty awesome already. I can’t wait to get some more info..let hope it will also make its way to the next gen consoles!
