I meant to get to this yesterday when it was “fresh” on the newswires, but was sidetracked in some video editing and other busy work.
Back in July, we reported that Sega Amusements had begun shipping their sequel to the Transformers: Human Alliance out to locations in the West, Transformers: Shadows Rising. With the existence of The House of the Dead Scarlet Dawn, it seems that it has been a little tougher for something like TSR to get noticed, although it does cover a different segment of the market that Scarlet Dawn doesn’t (quite a bit cheaper and non-gory gameplay).
This week, Sega issued a press release to remind operators that Scarlet Dawn isn’t the only new shooter that is available on the Sega arcade roster. This included some images of the game units loaded onto a truck bed and of the cabinet on location. It also has a reminder that the game will be at IAAPA in just a couple of weeks. I haven’t seen this one out in my area yet, but perhaps after IAAPA (and the Bumblebee movie coming to theaters), more locations will be adding one. Here are the pics, then the press release:
If you have had the chance to play this one already, what did you think about it?

TRANSFORMERS Shadows Rising
heading to a location near you!
Every week trucks full of TRANSFORMERS Shadows Rising games leave Sega factories destined for FEC’s and games rooms worldwide. With global brand equity over 4 billion dollars, TRANSFORMERS is a blockbuster franchise that attracts a huge family audience. This action packed, high energy new video game from Sega and Hasbro is out performing its closest competitors.
In TRANSFORMERS Shadows Rising, players team up with movie’s stars, Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Sideswipe, players must battle their way across the world to stop evil Megatron’s plan. The simple to use controller, easy to follow storyline and fast paced gameplay attracts casual and core gamers. Razor sharp graphics and in game physics comes to life on a huge 55 inch, full-HD screen, delivering an immersive visual experience. Combined with audio from 4 speakers with subwoofer and base shaker players experience “metal on metal” combat that is truly satisfying.
Brand new Hyperenergy Tech lever brings a new type of interaction to the game. Players can collect ‘Hyperenergy Tech Cubes’ throughout the game; then by pushing the Hyperenergy Tech Lever up they can unleash a shock wave to destroy multiple enemies or by pulling the Hyperenergy Tech Lever down they create a defensive forcefield protecting the player from enemy attack.
TRANSFORMERS Shadows Rising sensational truck shaped cabinet stands out in any location. Gorgeous chrome front grill and huge exhausts that light up red to emulate heat draws player attention. And if that wasn’t eye catching the lifelike Optimus Prime head with led lights for eyes sure gets the heads turning. Wrapped with vivid Transformers liveries, Multi-coloured LED lighting effects and dual sided marquee makes this game hard to miss from any angle.
