SEGA Amusement CEO says Outrun 3 is ‘on our radar’


SEGA Amusement has been making the rounds with old school SEGA fans ever since they announced Daytona 3 Championship USA earlier this year. It seems that SEGA Amusement will continue resurrecting old SEGA franchises, at least that’s what it sounds like. In a recent interview with T3, SEGA Amusement International CEO Paul Williams had this to say about a possible OutRun 3:

“Outrun 3 is not on plan at the moment. It is something that is on our radar but I cannot discuss more than that.”

It is interesting that he even spoke about the possibility of OutRun 3, considering how weird SEGA PR used to be in the past. It also seems, from what I gather from the quote that SEGA Amusement has a sort of short list of franchises they would like to bring back. Its not surprising that Daytona 3 Championship USA is one of the first titles considering how popular the original was. Paul Williams also talks about how they work with SEGA Japan developers and why its hard for them to bring SEGA Japanese games over to the states. Very interesting read.

What are your thoughts of the possiblity of OutRun 3? Let us know in the comments below!

  1. I’m stoked. I just hope that this time they’ll leave themselves an easy out if they use a license again so they don’t have to pull the entire game.

    Ash you got your wish, if you get to read this😀

    • Ash says:

      🙂 Hell yeah!

    • Miguel says:

      By some chance did you play any of the Outrun that came out about 7 years ago give or take a year? I liked the demo I played of it back then.

    • Ash says:

      I have the XBox version of Outrun 2 and Outrun 2: Coast to coast but the best is the arcade version. Too bad, the XBLA and PSN version is no longer avalaible.

    • AngryKurtz86 says:

      I love the XBLA version, is like the Original Xbox version, but it adds Force Feedback support.

      Is like having the arcade in your house.

      I wish they got the licenses back and make it available on Xbox One

    Credit should be given to for the long informative interview (soon a part 2 of it as well).

    • Rey says:

      You’ re right, Marco Zangirolami for made the interview with the CEO of Sega Amusements International, not arcade heroes who just commented the interview.

  4. Oh my God, I would love a new OutRun! That’s always been my favorite driving series.

  7. I have played the Out Run arcade game on three continents and like six states, though most of those were from being dragged around the world as a kid in the late 1980s/early 1990s. Still, no regrets

  8. that is my dream cab you have there if i was a rich man i would get one of those shipped over, it really needs the map and the top flash replacing though , get rid of that crappy turbo stuff and make it original 🙂

  9. The Sega Genesis in 1990. We pick up where “The Sega Genesis in 1989” and launch episodes left off. 46 games came out for the Genesis in 1990; some great, many good, and a few stinkers. Standout titles include Truxton, Golden Axe, Phantasy Star II, Thunder Force III, and Castle of Illusion. Obviously with this many games to cover they can’t all get equal screen time, so I tried to give more attention to the games that deserved it.
