The Big Buck Hunter Pro Pinball promotional video

January 29, 2010

(Thanks for the tip igo!)

Stern is living up to the promise of improving the marketing behind new pinball machines, as we see here with a new promotional video for Big Buck Hunter Pro Pinball. I haven’t had a chance to play it yet but it looks like it could be fun.

Konami details their AOU line-up

January 29, 2010

Thanks to and Aaron Auzins for the info.

EAG and ATEI aren’t the only shows to talk about in the arcade world these days as AOU in Japan is coming up before too long in Februrary. In anticipation for that show, Konami has launched a new site showing off the goods that they plan to bring to the show. Most of the products are bemani-related – DDRX2, GuitarFreaks XG (which appears to have a pretty awesome sound system), DrumMania XG and a new entry to Jubeat called Jubeat Knit (remember that outside of Japan this one is called UBeat or Jukebeat depending upon the version).

Outside of the bemani realm Konami also has a tile game called Tenkaichi Shogikai, Quiz Magic Academy VII and Mahjong Fight Club.

Of course one thing we are all curious about is where is Metal Gear Arcade? As this was announced at E3 last year, replete with photos of the cabinet, I had expected something by now. But the AOU page does have a big “Coming Soon” pic that could indicate MGA – or something else. At least the show is only a few weeks away so we’ll know soon enough.
