Sega's "Gettenka War History" card coin-op game

Sega continues to roll out the coin-op card games to strengthen their hand in that segment of the market and the latest title to fill out their line-up is “Getteka War History”. Like other card generator games, the cabinet dispenses a card that the player can use every time they play and this particular game involves battling characters from the warring states period. While I cannot find out how many cards can be collected overall, they do have character, item and weapon cards that can be placed into the card reader on the cabinet to use those things in the game. At the moment this looks like a game that is targeting Asian markets but if Sega Card Gen proves to be a success in the US next year, I wonder if they start bringing games like this into other international areas.

We reported a little while ago that one new title that would be seen at the recently passed AMOA 2009 show in Las Vegas was Sega’s new foray into coin-op card gaming, Sega Card Gen. But until now, we have not seen any useful pictures from the show but thanks to a link posted on AM-Net, we finally have a decent look at the game. In case you missed the news on this one, Sega Card Gen makes use of specialized baseball cards which are dispensed by the machine and then can be used by the player to play through a little game of touchscreen baseball. One reason why this is coming through a Japanese site is because it was recently announced that Sega is currently location testing this game in Japan and there has been a little bit of excitement regarding the matter on Japanese arcade sites. The game had seen some testing at the Gameworks in Chicago, IL, which you can hear more about on our most recent podcast. Probably one of the nicer things about this title is that it’s something different and Sega’s revelation on this one has already caused one company to import a card-playing arcade title of their own to the US.

As for Twisted, the new racer by GlobalVR, the one pictured above is the mini-motion configuration, which has now appeared on some arcade distributor websites with a price around $10k (the standard 32″ version going for about $6k)
