|Merged into: Hitmaker|
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 section, 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 manager.
AM3 existed for most of the 1990s until May 1999 when it became Sega Software R&D Dept. 3.
