Rambo to hit Japanese arcades this month

On September 18th, Japanese arcades will have to make room for this crazy Rambo cabinet, which contains a 62-inch display and two guns.

You play as Sly Stallone as Rambo — of course — in this game that brings together the story from the first three movies. You’ll use a machine gun to mow down enemies in scenes taken directly from the movie, like “Sneak into the enemy base,” each complete with accompanying footage and images from the films.

A new “Anger System” uses Rambo’s anger to increase the speed and power of his machine gun. You can actually max out the meter, giving Rambo invincibility. The screenshots from Watch Impress also show Rambo with a crossbow. 

This game looks pretty great. Even though it’s a Japanese release right now, I’d say that it’s a pretty safe bet that we’ll see a release here in American arcades.
