Shack's Arcade Corner: Die Hard Arcade

Greg Burke is back with another look at a classic arcade game.


This week on Shack's Arcade Corner, we take a look at Die Hard Arcade. Released in 1996 by AM1 and Sega, the game wasn't originally supposed to be a Die Hard game. In Japan, the game was called Dynamite Deka, but the distributors decided to rebrand with the successful movie's franchise. Die Hard Arcade was one of the first 3D arcade beat-em-ups and featured weapons pick-ups. The game even featured Quicktime events. Check out the video to find out more about Die Hard Arcade.
