Rambo went through a few location tests and it will be ready for mass distribution in Japan on September 18. The cabinet has a massive 62 inch screen, plenty of space for two players to shoot down helicopters. Rambo looks like a run of the mill light game with Sylvester Stallone’s visage, but Sega has a slight addition to the formula. When Rambo gets pissed he becomes powerful. The rage meter on the bottom left/right corners of the screen indicates Rambo’s anger level. You can draw a bit of rage to make Rambo shoot a burst of bullets or fully repress Rambo’s anger until the meter is full to make him invincible. The Rambo arcade game already looks way better than the Rambo games on the Sega Master System. It’s not announced for North America now, but it’s easy to imagine Sega placing these in Gameworks in the future.
