MK4 was put on location test in Japan and failed. A friend of mine and GP has the Japanese flyer.
At the time, SNK already had a deal with Atari which was later absorbed by Midway to distribute their games in Japan like Blitz, SF Rush, Gauntlet Legends, etc, so it's not so far fetched.
The Lost World was a huge money maker for Sega at the time. The one in the picture is for the deluxe special cab that was at Joypolis. To think there once was a Joypolis in Shinjuku....
