While the fact that Sonic Dash Extreme, the arcade port of the hit mobile game Sonic Dash, isn’t new. It has been spotted in the wild multiple times. The reason we decided to post it now is because we finally got a press release for the game. .
The cabinet for Sonic Dash Extreme will be housing a monster size 55 inch display and use an oversized ‘d-pad’ controls instead of touch. If you ever wanted to play Sonic Dash on a big screen, this is your chance. The game is set to get a official release this October and the other Sonic redemption machine that was spotted before (see photo below) will be coming out November.

About SEGA’s Product Line It’s well known product is the life blood of the coin-op industry and no company seems to “get” this fact better than Sega. During Sega’s private product presentation held at the AAMA Annual Meeting, the company revealed a portfolio that covers an impressive 12 distinct categories, 27 titles and 34 cabinet configurations. “While preparing the product presentation for the AAMA Annual Meeting, I did a doubletake when I added up our line-up,” said General Manager, Pete Gustafson. “The wide range of excellent choices we’re offering gives us a great deal of relevance with buyers who’ve come to rely on Sega having an extensive array of amusement games for their locations.”
About the SEGA Games Exhibited at the AAMA Annual Meeting and Gala
Sega displayed 4 games during the AAMA Gala including Hello Kitty Air Hockey, Sonic Dash, Sonic Blast Ball and Monkey Claw.
Hello Kitty Air Hockey – Introduced in 1975 as a character on a purse, Hello Kitty has grown into a $7 billion dollar franchise. The breath of merchandise proudly carrying this now iconic image is quite simply amazing. You’ll find it on everything from fashion jewelry to pancake makers (that make Hello Kitty-shaped pancakes), apparel to selfie sticks and now an arcade air hockey. Hello Kitty Air Hockey is the only “kid-sized” licensed air hockey on the market. It’s the perfect size for toddlers while still attractive to tweens, teens, young adults and parents with young kids.
Sonic Dash – The graphics are practically life size thanks to a 55” HD monitor. Players control the action using an oversized version of a home console directional pad – an interface that is immediately familiar to today’s players. Multiple worlds and characters from the Sonic franchise ensure plenty of repeat play.
Sonic Blast Ball – Fast moving, quick reaction game challenges players to open the drop gates at the top of the playfield at the right time allowing the “Blast Ball” to drop through the bonus hoop for a chance at the 1,000 ticket jackpot!
Monkey Claw Prize Crane – Monkey Claw allows for a widest range of claw configurations of any prize crane every built! Operators are able to configure the claw with 1 to 6 arms
