ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL -- New products will join cashbox winners in Sega Amusements USA's booth at this month' Amusement and Music Operators Association trade show in Las Vegas. Eight titles will share floor space, representing a generous selection of machines for both redemption and amusement-only play.

The game company will debut Sega Card Gen, a MLB license that employs touchscreen technology and a card-reading playing field. It is housed in a dynamically themed cabinet, and dispenses a customized MLB player card with each play. Placing these "Upper Deck" cards on the playfield permits gamers to pitch, bat and view highlights of a realistic baseball game. A main attraction for players is the ability to assemble and manage one's dream team. The baseball card collector mindset is also considered; Sega Card Gen can recognize 300 different player cards.

Pigs Might Fly! is a video ticket redemption game that challenges players to wield a lever to aim and shoot animated pigs at flying UFO targets.Skilled players can try to bag a mother ship and, if successful, score a ticket super bonus. It's an unusual graphical pairing, but the game's 37" LCD screen, interactive controller and small footprint make it an exciting addition to arcade locations.

Also on display will be GM Hummer Standard, the company's downsized version of GM Hummer Deluxe designed to provide an ideal solution for space-conscious locations. The game features all of its predecessor's modes including Race Mode and Time Attack Mode. It also retains the popular "boost button" element that propels drivers and renders the vehicle unassailable for a specified period of time. Obstacle courses, ramps and passing drivers challenge players at every turn.

Harley-Davidson King of the Road returns to the Sega exhibit with a motion-enabled motorcycle for a realistic riding experience. Riders choose vintage bikes or today's latest models and then race through fantasy cityscapes accompanied by 1970s rock tunes as well as original compositions. The deluxe version is equipped with 56" DLP monitor. It's also available in a standard cabinet with static seat and steering handlebars.

Sega Bass Fishing Challenge is a complete conversion kit designed for JAMMA trackball cabinets, eliminating the fishing rod component of Sega Bass Fishing. It can be installed in JAMMA cabinets such as Golden Tee Golf and Silver Strike Bowling. Up to four players can compete in well-known fishing spots and advance to multiple bonus games.Voice narrations and weigh-in events are combined with special fishing lure bonuses. Upated software includes a tutorial and easier fishing settings, and an optional printer kit can also be added.

Missfits, unveiled at the 2009 ATEI trade show, is a multi-reel redemption offering with quickly understood gameplay. The upright cabinet houses spinning reels that challenge players to match up each Missfit character for ticket rewards by pressing an oversized "stop" button. A front-access ticket and coinbox, customizable payout settings, and small footprint make it an attractive piece for operators.

Code Red is a prize-vending shooting game that features a carnival setting. Players can select one of six mini games and aim for eight moving targets within a specified time. A successful shot offers the option of collecting a small prize or continuing in the hope of winning a bigger one. Operators can adjust individually configured payout levels for large and small prizes. The game is equipped with comprehensive bookkeeping data and flexible vending that can program the payout for only small prizes, only large prizes or a combination of both.

Sega UFO Catcher is a fascinating skill crane that has proven itself a consistent moneymaker. Its unique claw design, built-in flatscreen monitor and pastel color motif catch the prospective player's eye immediately. Sega will stock the AMOA exhibit unit with lavish and collectible Disney plush from the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Regular Jumbo and Just Winnie Premium Jumbo lines. The crane is well suited for all locations including FECs, truck stops and arcades.

Sega can be reached at (847) 364-9787. It is online at segaarcade.com.
