Re-Volt was released on an actual Arcade Machine by Tsunami Visual Technologies September 24, 2004.

Arcade

This version of the game featured a few changes such as gameplay and graphics. It ran on Microsoft Windows 98 and came in two versions: The TsuMo Standard Non-Motion Sit Down Re-Volt and the Deluxe version.

The Re-Volt Standard Computer System utilized commercially available computer parts. Known hardware includes:

  • ASUS P4S800-MX SE Motherboard
  • GIGABYTE GO-C5200B 52X IDE CD-ROM
  • MSI MX4000-T64R Video Card
  • Standard IDE Hard Drive
  • Socket 478 Intel Processor
  • 256MB DDR Memory
  • ATX Power Supply
  • Custom Case with Sock Mounts

Hardware can be easily changed with just a driver update and if needed the entire operating system can be reloaded with CD-ROMs that was included with each system.  However, once the system is reloaded a custom code must be given to the original manufacturer and a subsequent unlock code must be entered into the Arcade System before it will be usable.

Similar to the Dreamcast version's time trial mode and many other arcade racers, there is a global timer.

This version had two additional tracks, those are Gabor's Venice and a new track created by Kurt Arnlund, an ex-Tsunami employee. I created a junk yard circle track using the crane and a car model that I made using pictures of a coworkers car.  I also created some original music that I was using in the junk yard track. Many of the tracks also have been customized to make the game friendlier and more forgiving for beginners.
