September 7, 2010

Newsfeed 920 via

We finally have an extensive look at what went on at the GTI Asia China Expo 2010 and along with plenty of games came a few surprises. I’m still trying to find any video posted from the event online but so far no luck – if anything substantial comes along I’ll update this post. Some of the games you’ll see below: the first non-glasses stereoscopic 3D arcade game, Disney’s 3D Ping Pong; Pentavision’s DJ MAx Technika 2; Dino Survivor 4D by Belrare; a new version of Konami’s Mocap Sports; Taito’s Gaia Attack 4; Hypaa’s Mozarc; Andamiro’s Pump It Up Fiesta; a 10-player game called Ocean Spirit 2 and much more than we had seen previously.

Taito's new trailer for Gaia Attack 4

June 18, 2010

It’s been a few months since we first saw Taito’s newest foray into the realm of light-gun shooters, Gaia Attack 4 and today they released a full trailer for the title on their Japanese Youtube channel. To bring you up to speed on this in case you missed it, GA4 is a four-player light-gun shooter that overlays CG effects that you shoot on top of real world footage. Is there a chance that this could see an international release? We’re not sure but seeing how they are trying out Elevator Action Death Parade internationally, you never say never. A four-player light-gun arcade game is also something that is a novelty these days with which can grab it extra attention based upon that fact alone. The last one I know of was Konami’s Warzaid and that came out in 2003 (as a sidenote, the only one I have ever seen was when I was in Brazil recently).

Taito opens new flagship arcade in Yokohama Japan

April 30, 2010

Taito has a new six story arcade to check out if you happen to be in Yokohama Japan, and they were happy to start it off with a bang. Company executives showed up and made some speeches, they had a celebrity, Maomi Yuuki on hand ; Taito announced a new line of plush products to be carried in their cranes and they even had the new Gaia Attack 4 machine

on display. You might recall from AOU that GA4 is a four-player light-gun game from Taito/Gamewax which features CGI content overlaid onto real-world footage. While the game isn’t set to release until July, the demo version they have setup here includes footage from this Game Station location.

If you look at the Game Watch article about this though, they don’t have many details revolving around the exact games you can play there as apparently the plush line featuring characters Gaspard and Lisa is a pretty big deal. I imagine that some of Taito’s latest arcade releases are there, including Music Gun Gun, elevator Action Death Parade, Cyber Diver and others. They do list what content each floor has however with the basement housing crane and music games, the first floor more cranes, the second floor gun and card games, the third & fourth floors feature medal games with the 4th focusing on Pachinko, the fifth floor mahjong games and the sixth floor sticker picture machines. This brings a total of 300 machines tot he operation, which should help stave off boredom for even the most picky players. The store uses LED lighting to keep electricity costs down and the first and sixth floors employ a fragrance deployment system to enhance the environment of that particular floor.

You can visit the official website for this location here.

A few more AOU videos – Gaia Attack 4, Jigsaw World Arena, Puzzle of Ocha, Speed Rider

February 21, 2010

Just a few more videos from AOU I’ve found featuring things to round-up the weekend.

Taito’s Gaia Attack 4. It’s good to see it in action – they used video of real world environments and have overlaid them with 3D  graphics. There’s an interesting Ghostbusters style mini-game at the beginning of this video.

Jigsaw World Arena. This is another new puzzle game that uses the PGM2 hardware for solid 2D performance. This is a four player title that looks like it could be a lot of fun.

Puzzle of Ocha, the other PGM2 powered puzzle game that we had spoke of recently. Nice to see it in action.

Speed Rider by IGS.

Taito's new 4 player shooter – Gaia Attack 4 + Hopping Road for kids

February 19, 2010

AOU is just starting and with that comes a little bit of news related to things we hadn’t heard about prior to today. First off, Taito has a new theater-style light gun shooter (sort of like Panic Museum) that they are showing off called Gaia Attack 4. The one thing to help set this apart – it has four guns. This isn’t the first time something like this has been tried but it certainly doesn’t happen often as the cabinet’s to support this many players isn’t something space-starved locations can carry. From the small graphics Taito is showing off this looks a bit quirky, you can see more here on the webpage they have set up for the game. It does use the Taito Type X2 hardware and thanks to the Editor we know that this to was developed by Gamewax. They are certainly getting around!

Also, Taito is showing off a new version of Hopping Road at the show, one made specifically for kids. Good call on their part as this game seemed like it would be a perfect fit for kids in the first place. Here is a picture of that next to the full size version, via AM-Net.
