Oh boy, here we go. I for one will not be putting a lot of faith into Capcom for this until we see it. For more perspectives, AH contributors Kevin Williams and Aaron Auzins weigh in on the possibilities, after the jump

The headline says it all. Despite the fact that Konami didn’t give this a lot of hype, it looks like turnout was pretty good at the first qualifier wjhich was held in Dallas.

Game releases for this week: Twisted, BBH: Open Season, GT2010 and in Japan, Tank! Tank! Tank! (updated)

October 3, 2009

UPDATE: I forgot to add Golden Tee 2010 which was also released this week

It’s been a little while since I did a “releases this week” post since news has been a little slow in that regard but this week there are a few titles that you can now start looking for in arcades, depending upon where you find yourself.

First off, GlobalVR has released their newest driving game Twisted: Nitro Stunt Racing. While a mini-motion version had been made available from the company previously, the standard and deluxe versions of the game started shipping this week. According to the press release by GVR, the game is selling better than they expected it to. More info on that title can be found here.


Next up is the new update for Big Buck Hunter, called Big Buck Hunter Pro: Open Season. Betson is reporting that this update is available in both dedicated and kit form although I have not seen a price for this listed yet. More info on that can be found here.


Incredible Technologies has also released the 21st iteration of their popular Golden Tee series, Golden Tee 2010 LIVE. In addition to updated graphics and courses this one also adds skins play, Facebook connectivity and more. It also has a really nice price (below the $3600 range I have seen).


Also of a note, Namco’s Tank! Tank! Tank! has been released in Japan. I have heard that a US release for this title will be “post-IAAPA” so that could mean December.

All of these titles have been moved into the “Already Released” columns on out official Arcade Game Release list for 2009.
