SEGA Arcade: Pop-Up History


SEGA Arcade: Pop-Up History presents six of the most iconic SEGA taiken ‘body sensation’ videogame cabinets – Hang-On, Space Harrier, Out Run, After Burner, Thunder Blade and Power Drift – in an innovative form: as dazzling pop-up paper sculptures.

Accompanying this 3D showcase is a written history from Guardian games writer and best-selling novelist, Keith Stuart, which will be punctuated by schematics, game artwork and production artwork related to each cabinet. The book will feature contributions from the innovator behind these games, Yu Suzuki, who will offer first-hand insight into the development of these groundbreaking games and the birth of the taiken cabinet phenomenon.

SEGA Arcade: Pop-Up History will be a unique book object, a delight for SEGA fans and a love letter to the once-vibrant arcade game scene of the 1980s.

Please note that as this title is currently in development the final design and specification is subject to change.
