Pokemon Game Heads For Arcades In Japan

Seems to be a busy time for the arcades in Japan with the upcoming Attack on Titan game and now another huge franchise is heading the arcades.

Pokken Tournament, a Pokemon fighting game, will be making an appearance in Japan this coming Summer. Bandai Namco revealed the news during the Japan Amusement Expo which is held in Chiba.

Here are some pics of the game shown at the show. It’s looking pretty great!

Arcades Receive New Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune 4

I was just looking at this arcade cabinet last night at a shopping centre, can’t remember which version it was, and now I read that the latest one has hit the arcades. This wouldn’t be something I normally blog about but the visuals on the cabinet and the actual game caught my eye. I rarely play or venture into arcades anymore but I’d be willing to give this a try!

This system is really innovative with the ability to create a custom car and driver and upload your creation to a server for other racers to challenge. It also incorporates the ‘Revenge System’ where if your best time is beaten in a race, the game will issue a challenge to you allowing you to claim revenge against him or her.

 

 

The cabinet will be shipping with a 32″ monitor, 4.1 surround sound, customising your car will be done via a separate terminal and support for the Banapassport Card system will be built in. as well as all that, the game will be network ready meaning that new cars and courses will be available for download by the arcade operator…way cool.
