Side note: I’m tickled to see that Vikas Deo, the genius behind the Target: Terror and The Fast & the Furious soundtracks, is still working in the industry to this day.



Since its announcement, Jersey Jack has actively promoted the title across their social media channels, sharing playfield photos, a look at the JJP factory, and even a rule structure flowchart.

While I can’t say I’m personally interested in the Guns ‘N’ Roses theme—my rock tastes skew more modern—I’m definitely glad that fans of the band have something special to enjoy once arcades reopen across the country.

I’d imagine those who thought “JJP6” was gonna be Toy Story are probably a bit bummed right now. I want it just as much as you do, people.
