|Even if titlescreen says 1995, Time Crisis was released in March 1996 in Japan.|
Time Crisis introduced a new and innovative feature to the lightgun game in the form of a foot pedal, situated at the bottom of the cabinet. The player's on-screen counterpart will automatically hide behind whatever cover is available and the player must step on and hold down the foot pedal to break cover and shoot the enemies. Also, ducking behind cover (releasing the pedal) is the only way for the player to reload. This superb feature brought a new level of interaction to a genre that is, by necessity, very linear.
