Terminator Salvation Arcade now testing in Japan UPDATE: UK too

Shaggy January 9, 2010 6

It looks like Raw Thrills/Betson is really beginning to make a push into the Japanese arcade market. First we heard of them testing H2Overdrive in the region, then Chicago Coin/Betson’s PUTT: Champion Golf was seen over there and now we have news of Terminator Salvation currently being tested at the “Shop Yokohama Nishiguchi Raundowan”. What would be even more interesting is to find out how well these games are selling as well as earning on location and whether they have full Japanese translations or not. Speaking of that, if any arcade developer out there ever wishes to break into the Brazilian coin-op market, I would happily do the Portuguese translation of any game for a reasonable fee. I’m just saying. 😉

UPDATE: Thanks to arcades4ever in the comments, we now know that it’s testing at the  Hollywood Bowl Bowling Alley in the UK as well. As always, if anyone ever has a chance to snap some pics from a location test, send them to us so we can share with everyone (we’ll give you credit too). 😉

    I have been told that they are sending out units to certain locations next week and then will begin mass distribution in another week or two. I think they are doing a soft roll out to make sure that there aren’t any problems.
