    TRIVIA
    Beast Busters was released in November 1989 in Japan.

    One famous owner of a Beast Busters cabinet was American pop singer, Michael Jackson (1958-2009), who would often take the cabinet on tour with him via cargo plane.

    A Beast Busters unit appears in the 1998 movie 'The Replacement Killers'.
