Out Run: Early Cabinet Screenshot

Here's an early photo of an OutRun Deluxe cabinet. [source]


If you look closely at the screen, you will spot that there are a number of differences from the released version. This must be running an early prototype version of the game.
  • Timer is using the font from Space Harrier. This font is in the OutRun ROMs but not used anywhere. Now we know it was used in an earlier prototype version.
  • Sign art is different in a number of places from release.
  • Debug information above speed on left hand side.
  • No rev counter
  • kp/h graphic is different
  • No route map




This Space Harrier also has some differences from the released version:
  • A step built into the base at the front which was later removed.
  • The side art is different; the underbelly of the dragon and his hair are orange on this version and yellow on the final art.
  • Different instructions & warning stickers, 
  • Sega logo size on the rear panel and title screen
