Sega Amusement Machine Research and Development Department #3, (Sega AM R&D Dept. #3) was a division within Sega of Japan. It was formally established in April 1993, due to an internal reorganization of the arcade development sectionMedia:DCM_JP_20000922_2000-30.pdf[1], and existed primarily to create arcade (or "amusement") games.

During its existence, this division was commonly referred to as Sega AM3, being the "third" of several R&D divisions within Sega's Japanese operations. From May 1993 onwards, Hisao Oguchi acted as AM3's general managerMedia:IR EN 2003-05-19.pdf[2].
