Shack's Arcade Corner: After Burner II

This week on Shack's Arcade Corner, we look back at After Burner II, the classic flight combat game. The arcade cabinet featured a two button flight stick with throttle and was produced and developed by SEGA. Players took control of a F14 as they fought their way through the game. There was a special arcade cabinet designed to immerse players even more with an enclosed seat and servo movement. The game was featured in the movie Terminator 2: Judgment Day and even got a shoutout in Bayonetta. After Burner II was also ported to countless consoles, but nothing really ever captured the fun of playing it in the arcade. Take a look at this video to find out more!
