Taito’s Panic Museum coming to the US via ICE
It looks like the slowdown in arcade news is finally letting up with a number of companies sending out press releases today regarding product that we’ll be seeing at IAAPA next week. One release that surprised me today is ICE’s announcement that they will be showing off Taito’s Panic Museum (also known as Haunted Museum at one point)at their booth. ICE generally focuses on coin-op redemption, crane and air hockey products so seeing them teaming up with Taito on this is an interesting development. Previously the game has been testing in Europe and Japan and I wasn’t expecting to see it in the US. We’ll look into it further at the show next week as well as what this might mean for further Taito games in the US down the road.
