Capcom has held a private show where their upcoming 2D fighter Sengoku Basara X made an appearance. Housed in the new Viewlix Taito cabinets (which uses an HD flat-panel monitor capable of at least 720p resolution and is used by Battle Fantasia and King of Fighters Maximum Impact Regulation A) attendees were able to get a taste of Capcom’s newest entry to the arcade market. Rumor has it however that Taito may not end up distributing the title and Capcom will release the game as a separate kit to anyone they please. This is certainly surprising and hopefully it means Capcom will get on the ball with arcades again (this is just speculation on my part of course).
Capcom also demonstrated a Pokemon Kid Vendor machine, some coin pusher titles and another medal game called Alien DANGER. Sadly War of the Grail was nowhere to be seen and if the game isn’t seen at the upcoming JAMMA event it might indicate that they no longer are developing for the Type X platform. I hope that it does show up however – the arcade seems to be the perfect environment for a Dynasty Warriors style game.
