Super Hang-On (also known as Hang-On 2) is a 1987 motorcycle racing arcade game from Sega, and the sequel to the acclaimed Hang-On. A version of this game, in the full simulated-motorcycle cabinet used by the original Hang-On was released in 1991 as Limited Edition Hang-On.
It was released for the Sega Genesis, Commodore Amiga, Atari ST, Macintosh, ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC and Commodore 64 in 1989. Super Hang-On was also released for the Sharp X68000 computer in Japan. The game also appeared on several Mega Drive compilations, namely Mega Games I (bundled with the console as Mega Drive Magnum Set), and Genesis 6-Pak.
Sega renewed the Super Hang-On trademark with the U.S Patent Office in early April 2006. There is speculation that a new Super Hang-On game might be released on one of the new-generation consoles or off the Sega Lindbergh architecture.
- In the 1988 arcade game Power Drift, the motorcycle appears as a hidden vehicle that can only be accessed by winning first place on all five tracks for courses A, C, and E. It is only playable in the Extra Stage.
- In Ayrton Senna's Super Monaco GP II, there is a cheat which allows the player to race as a Super Hang-On bike, including working brake lights. Gameplay is otherwise unaltered.
- In the 1994 arcade game Daytona USA, there's a short version of Sprinter which can be accessed by giving "SHO" as initials in the name entry screen.
- In Sonic Riders, there is an unlockable Gear called the "Super Hang-On," which plays the song Outride a Crisis, the first of the four songs featured in Super Hang-On. In Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, however, the Hang-On is unlockable for around 6,000 rings. Collecting 100 rings and pressing a button during a race in this gear changes the gear from a Hang-On sit-down arcade machine to the sit-down cabinet to this game. It also changes tunes from the main theme of the 1985 classic to Outride a Crisis.
The endings for this game are much like those in Out Run, with the endings changing depending on the locale. The "best" ending is the Europe stage, when a news crew comes to cover the end of the race and faints once the in-game rider takes off his helmet and is revealed to be an elderly man with a long beard, who smokes a pipe.
In the Genesis version, finishing the Europe stage shows an ending where a woman approaches the rider (presumably to kiss him), but she walks away awkwardly when the rider pulls off her helmet, and is shown to actually be a woman.
