Michael Jackson in Scramble Training is a Sega AS-1 motion simulator game developed by Sega AM3 and manufactured by Sega. Starring popular musician and Sega collaborator Michael Jackson in the feature role, the game was released in March 1993, and was frequently installed in the company’s flagship arcade venues such as Joypolis and SegaWorld.


Players take the role of new pilots on a training mission in their eight-man spacecraft. Their flight trainer, Commander Jackson (Michael Jackson), guides them through the mission.


Using each seat’s joystick and dual buttons, players are prompted to shoot down incoming spacecraft and other obstacles.




Even with such a known celebrity attached to the title, there exist very few recollections of the ride film’s gameplay and experience. The software is entirely unpreserved and and only a few off-screen sources exist of its video portions.


In late 1992, while Jackson was in Japan for his Dangerous World Tour, he met with Sega of Japan and worked with developers Sega AM5 as a celebrity actor for the upcoming Sega AS-1. Shooting scenes for both of the hardware’s ride films, Jackson also played a small role in Megalopolis: Tokyo City Battle.
