Transformers Human Alliance Special - Sega Shows Off New R360 Pods On Transformers Movie-based Shooter

You may never have heard of the Sega R360 system before today - I hadn't! - but it's a fascinating idea: an enclosed pod for arcade gaming that can rotate in any direction. Sega has recently updated their `90s arcade tech on a special version of their Transformers: Human Alliance arcade game! Keep reading for more info on the game!
From the site T3:

The special edition R360 version of Transformers: Human Alliance can be played at Joypolis, Odaiba, Tokyo

With the launch of the latest movie in the Transformers franchise, last year Sega bought the rights to develop the videogame for Japan's arcade centres, deciding not only - for marketing reasons - to create the upright standard version, but also a deluxe sit down version.

However, for the historical amusement arcade centre named 'Joypolis' in Odaiba (the Tokyo bay area), Sega decided to go even further, adapting the game with a full 360 degree moving cabinet that could cater for not just one but two players together in the same system.


Talking about the game itself, it is a 'special version' of the game Transformers: Human Alliance, which is modelled for a three-stage run only (so a fixed five-minute session of play). Transformers: Human Alliance is basically a rail shooter developed on the RingEdge 2 PCB in which the player’s main goal is to help the Autobots shooting at their rivals the evil Decepticons and hopefully survive!

As mentioned before, the normal game path is modified to play three of the game’s stages in increasing difficulty. Having watched many casual gamers get into the new R360 and play the game though, I noticed that if they are not very good, then they rarely get to the final stage, tending to occupy the cabinet for around 3-4 minutes instead of the full five potentially on offer for their credits.

Here is a short trailer for the game showing some of the action.





Wow, that dialogue.

Here's some outside-the-pod footage of the R360 in action!
