-Tekken 6 showed a video only, but they hope to release the game in late 2007 for arcades.

-Mario Kart 2 has a few more tracks and new characters. You will begin seeing these pop up after March 1st of this year.  
 
KONAMI  
-Silent Hill The Arcade is a deluxe 2-player gun game that plays much like House Of The Dead. Game play is excellent and is on a 50” digital monitor! This should be out in late 2007.  
 
SEGA  
-Too Spicy is a first person gun game that has a foot control for side-to-side movement. With a name like Too Spicy it is sure to be an interesting play. Start looking for it in April of this year.  
-Initial D 4 is a very popular technical racing game. It is just starting to ship in Japan this week and as of right now there is no date when they will release in the US.  
-Virtual Fighter 5 has been out in Japan for 9 months and it has not yet been determined yet if they will bring it to the US.  
-Ghost Squad 2 Evolution is a very tactical gun game based on an elite military unit. Start looking for this game in the US in late March/early April of this year.  
 
TAITO  
-Battle Gear 4 Tuned is a racing game like Initial D. You have choices to add different parts to your car to make it better and there is also drifting involved. It is doing very well in Japan, but for right now there are no plans to bring to the US.  
-Chase HQ 2 is based on one of the best drivers of the 80s. The basic concept is that you are a cop chasing bad guys. In order to stop and capture the villains, you must slam into their cars to damage them until they are no longer drivable.

    I think you are a little off on the Sega booth as no Ghost Squad EVOLUTION cabinets were at AOU this year – you mixed that up with ATEI’07?

    That’s the trouble when you grab info off other sites. Strange that they didn’t have it at the AOU. Thanks for letting me know.
