Division of Sega of Japan
|Merged into: Sega Mechatronics (1999)|
Sega Amusement Machine Research and Development Department #6, commonly known as Sega AM R&D #6 or Sega AM6, was a research and development division within Sega. The division was created in 1990 when it spun off from Sega AM4 with the attraction-focused AM5. It similarly specialized in development of one type of amusement machinery, medal games.
Unlike AM4, AM6 developed both hardware and software, notable examples including Royal Ascot. It would also collaborate with other AM divisions, such as AM3 on Bingo Party. With the exception of a select few titles, most of AM6's produce remained largely exclusive to Japan, only seeing occasional exports under the overseas Sega Gaming division during the mid 1990s.
