Videos from JAMMA including Shining Force Cross,KOF Sky Stage, Giant Tetris, taito’s table flipping game and more

Who wants just still photos of an event when you can have videos?

Sega’s Shining Force Cross. This is less like Gauntlet than I imagined it might be but it’s still cool. I really want a Gauntlet-like game for arcades again however.

Sega’s Giant Tetris

Taito’s Table pounding/flipping tantrum game also translated as “Ultra Low Dining Table”. The guys in each of these videos are a lot nicer to the table than most patrons would probably be.

KOF Sky Stage

Namco’s Tank! Tank! Tank! EDF 2017 wishes that it was this crazy looking. I like the bug parts flying everywhere, at least we know that of all of the titles on this post, this one is coming to Europe and the US.

Round-up from the JAMMA show (updated)

September 17, 2009

Since I don’t have the opportunity to visit the JAMMA show in Japan, we have to rely on what other sites are showing us in regards to what is going on over there. Thanks to several Japanese game websites, here is a run down of what has been going on at JAMMA.

Sega launches a Giant Tetris website.

Namco also has launched a teaser site for Tank! Tank! Tank! in Japanese. (Image above via Gpara)

While nothing has been shown on Arcana Heart 3, two teaser pics on the Examu blog seem to indicate that AH3 may in fact be a 3D fighter. (see the Upatsu scoop post on this link)

Just so I don’t overwhelm the front page with a long post with all of these big images, you can see more by hitting the link below. And to entice you further here’s what you get: Shots of Namco’s new pirate-themed light-gun title; a card-game from Namco; H2Overdrive in Japan; Shining Force Cross and more Giant Tetris; Project Cerebus; two new and unique games from Taito; Cyber Diver, KOF Sky Stage and more. UPDATE: Pics added for Tetris: The Grand Master 4, Speed Rider, Heat Up Hockey and others via Game Watch (which was found via AM Net)

KOF goes all shmup-y with KOF Sky Stage

KOF fan purists – brace yourselves. Or you might want to skip this post entirely but then again the damage is already done if you even noticed this.

For everyone else – talk about an unexpected twist in the King of Fighters series, although this is not the first time that SNK has toyed with taking the game in a different direction than what it has always been. SNK Playmore has unveiled a new KOF game that will be shown off at JAMMA next week called KOF Sky Stage. But this is not KOFXIII – it’s a whole new game that takes the franchise into the awesome land of shmups, bullet hell shmups in particular. We don’t know if it will give you 20-40 different characters to choose from (that’s unlikely) but for now we do know what it looks like and that it will be running on the Taito TypeX hardware. Stay tuned for more on this one.
