Tis the season for game shows in Japan and while the Tokyo Game Show does not focus primarily upon arcades like JAMMA did, we still get the chance to see some of the journalists who flock to TGS check out some of the great Japanese arcades in Akihabara. One guy from G4TV made a stop at the Taito Station there and captured some video of Half-Life 2 Arcade, Taiko Drum Master,  Beatmania IIDX 16 Empress and even Konami’s DrumMania V6 Blazing and GuitarFreaks V6 Blazing. Unfortuantely I can’t embed the videos on the site here so follow the link below to witness some arcade goodness from Taito Station.

Konami testing GuitarFreaks V6 & DrumMania V6 “Blazing” in Japan

November 6, 2008

Konami is location testing the next version of their GuitarFreaks and DrumMania games in Japan (the original use-a-music-instrument-as-a-controller games) and it seems like it wasn’t long ago that they were doing the same with GFV5 and DMV5. We don’t have any details on what is different about these games yet from V5 or previous versions of the game but with Raw Thrills’ beginning to make a move into the music game arena with American Idol and possibly Guitar Hero Arcade, I wonder if Konami as well as other arcade companies are going to start making a stronger push towards music titles. With games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero makes boatloads of cash on the consoles, I think it’s a given that the video music genre will be one to be reckoned with, even in arcades. If you ask me, I think that these sort of games are the kind of game that can be even more fun in arcades, in part because you don’t need to spend all that money to buy instrument controllers in addition to the game and mostly because of the social aspect where people will have fun showing off their skills in public.
