Super Locomotive (スーパーロコモーティブ) is an arcade game released by Sega in 1982.

Super Locomotive ran on custom Sega arcade hardware, which was very similar to the Sega System 1 later released in 1983.[2][3][4] The game was designed and programmed by Fukumura Mizunaga. The background music is a chiptune rendition of the synthpop song "Rydeen" (1979) by Yellow Magic Orchestra.

A port of the game for the Sega Mega Drive was included in the Mega Drive Mini 2 as a bonus game.


The Mega Drive port of the game was developed by M2 alongside a Mega Drive port of Spatter as a hobby during their free time almost 10 years prior to the development of the Mega Drive Mini 2, for no particular reason other than the staff liking the games enough to do so. Naoki Horii had proposed for both ports to be part of the 3D Classics project, but were both deemed too niche and were thus shelved[5].
