AOU 2008 – Videos of Jubeat, Action Cop, BlazBlue, Gundam and KOF XII

Shaggy February 15, 2008 0

From youtube user Gigazine comes some videos from AOU 2008. I have to say that it’s nice that so much attention is being given to arcades right now because of AOU but at the same time it’s disappointing – not because of AOU itself but because everyone only seems to be getting excited about a Japanese arcade show, where many of the games aren’t being released outside of that country. Where was all the mainstream excitement for ATEI or IAAPA? Almost no one mentioned the release of Big Buck Safari, Primeval Hunt, RaceTV or Blazing Angels. I know the answer is found in stuff like Street Fighter IV because of the history of that game but it’s still a little disappointing to see how quick many places are to declare the death of the arcade but once something big comes along they are all over it. Speaking of industry shows, I do plan on heading to ASI next month where some new games will be shown off for the US market. That should be a lot of fun.

Konami’s Jubeat

Action Cop

BlazBlue

From a different user, NeoGeoForLife we have KOF XII

Also I’d like to point out that Arcade Renaissance has a page with links to more videos on their site.
