We first heard about a Terminator Salvation arcade title way back at ASI in March and except for a brief view of the game on a location test in June, there has been little else to say about the game since information surrounding it has been kept under wraps. But thanks to a new press release sent out by Betson today, we have our first proper look at the game, including what should be the final cabinet design. As you can see from the picture above, they have changed the cabinet up quite a bit since the location test (which at the time was using just a Big Buck Safari Deluxe cabinet with different artwork. The size of the guns is positioning this game to compete with titles like Rambo Deluxe or Ghost Squad Deluxe  and I assume we’ll be able to find out how much the game will cost next week.

According to the press release (which is attached after the post break below) they also added a new reloading feature to the game that they are calling Clip action reload. While the press release doesn’t get into any details on how that works, it appears that you will reload by hitting the clip on the bottom of the gun. Where this will be at IAAPA next week I will be getting some more pictures, video and info on this new title, which will be appearing in arcades “soon”. As a side note, this is NOT the same game that graced the consoles earlier this year so no worries in the event that you were disappointed with that game.

UPDATE: Click here to watch a video I took of the game from the IAAPA show floor.

    One trend I like about newer arcade cabinets are the backlit plexi designs. It makes me want to get some made for older games where the marquee is in bad condition.

    Also the eyes on the Terminator marquee are backlit as well, which is a nice little touch.

      Do you live in the UK? If so then you’ll need to find a UK distributor, like Electrocoin or Brent Sales who can give you a quote.
