Today in London there was an event to show off some of the latest creations in the arcade/amusement/out-of-home entertainment sector. Kevin Williams of The Stinger Report was there at EAS 2011 to snap some photos of the games that were on hand, click below to check out some of the new stuff including Virtua Tennis 4, Let’s Go Island 3D, Deadstorm Pirates 3D, Robo Restle, Dirty Drivin’ and more
First up from Kevin is a look at the Sega booth which includes the first overseas appearance of Let’s Go Island 3D. This game is also listed on the Sega US site so I imagine we’ll be seeing it at IAAPA as well. As we’ve mentioned many times before, no 3D glasses required.
Sega wasn’t the only company to show off a 3D game as Namco demonstrated with Deadstorm Pirates 3D. This is also the first time they have shown this title overseas. From the looks of it, it’s a 4 player game now although will it just be a large format theater game or will it be done in a smaller form?
Another first time overseas appearance happens to be that of Sega’s Virtua Tennis 4. We did know about this in advance thanks to JAMMA, where this was shown to be made primarily for the international market. It still remains to be seen whether this is a European specific release or not.
We have seen Robo Restle and the standard version of DeadStorm Pirates previously however this marks the first time the final release version of Robo Restle has been seen. It’s not clear when it will be available exactly but I imagine it will be very soon.
Sonic Blast Heroes and Frightfearland, European versions.
Cube Shooter. We first saw this at the DEAL show earlier this year.
Fruit Ninja FX
A couple of racing simulators were there to draw some attention, RaceRoom and EvoTek.
TrioTech’s XD Theater and XD Dark Ride
A 5D Cinema called Landscape Navigator
The TransForce 5D system
The 5D Alterface
An entertainment robot called Robot Thespian
The Animalive entertainment system
If we get anything else from EAS, I’ll be sure to share.
