Last of the big names is Konami. I have to say thier stand was a bit on the sparse side. Guitar Freaks  & Drum Mania V4 where present and attracting a lot of attention from players. Wacky Races also made an appearance on the stand, although, as I have said already this was on various stands around the show. Finally Silent Hill rounded off the rest of the big games on the Konami stand.

As you may remember I’m already familiar with two of these game from the location tests I checked out last year. For those of you who missed these posts, which included photos, videos and my impressions, why not check them out;

Konami’s ATEI 2008 line-up

January 5, 2008

Konami has issued a press release regarding it’s presence at ATEI this year and while the line-up isn’t large in terms of how many games they will be showing off, they are still aiming to impress.

One of their highlights is Silent Hill: The Arcade game that despite taking a verbal beating from fans (most of whom have never played it) stated “the game has predominantly been the highest income shooting game in test locations around Europe” thus showing that the game is doing well beyond what some thought it would do.

Also at the show they will be demonstrating Guitar Freaks V4 Rock x Rock and Drum Mania V4 Rock x Rock, two of Konami’s latest Bemani titles which take advantage of Konami’s online e-AMUSEMENT system and may also be connecting to each other so playerscan either jam out together as a band or play head-to-head.

Also Konami plans on demonstrating one of it’s new redemption titles ‘Eledees’, based on the popular family brand. Players attempt to capture colorful characters for a higher score and more tickets.

Konami will be at stand 2240 – be sure to check Arcade Heroes around ATEI time for a look at what they’ll have! Hit the post break to read the full press release! [Discuss on the Forum]
