Japan Expo 2008 was recently held in France and arcade-related website Neo-Arcadia was there with a booth and plenty of screenshots to boot. The arcade presence at the expo brought many games into one place that you would typically find in Japan but would be hard pressed to find all in one place elsewhere. The game roster is pretty impressive, as an example:
Baston: Mark of the Wolves, The King of Fighters’98 Ultimate Match, Samurai Spirits Zero Special, Garou: Mark of the Wolves, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Melty Blood Act Cadenza ver.A, The King of Fighters XI, Hokuto No Ken , Martial Masters, The Rumble Fish 2, Super Street Fighter II X, Street Fighter Zero 3 Upper, Sengoku Basara X, Guilty Gear Accent Core, Battle Fantasia.
Shoot’em up : Zero Gunner 2, Ketsui, Dragon Blaze, ESP Galuda 2, DoDonPachi Dai Fukkatsu 1.5, Death Smiles, Border Down, Batrider, Mazinger Z, Mushihime Sama Futari Black Label, GigaWing.
Other: Oriental Legend 2, Puzzle Bobble 2X, Windjammers, Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny Vs ZAFT II
At least I can say that I’ve played a couple of games on that list but I’ve not had the chance to play a majority of them. At least I can vouch for how great Oriental Legend 2 is. Naturally they also had several tournaments running during this time and overall it looks like their booth attracted a great crowd of people.
While there are many pictures of the event at their site, what better for posting than a video tour of the NeoArcadia booth.
