First released in 1995, the light-gun/foot pedal light-gun shooting game quickly gained a following of fans and the success of the series gave us a few sequels and a couple of spin-offs. The last time the series officially graced the arcade scene was with Time Crisis 4 released in 2006 and the spin-off of Razing Storm in 2008. That will change in 2015 with the arrival of Time Crisis 5, which is set for a full international release around March/April 2015. It is also worth noting that Tekken 7 will be available in Japan in February 2015 but we have not confirmed yet that it will be making the trip West; Time Crisis 5 certainly will be.
I had a hunch from various tips that this was coming, but it is taking a slight back seat to Star Wars Battle Pod and it will not be shown at IAAPA 2014. Instead we should get our first hands-on time with it at Amusement Expo 2015 in Las Vegas.
The only solid info we have on the game at the moment is from this flyer below which shows a deluxe cabinet that uses 2x 55″ screens, a specialized pistol and the foot pedals move the character from side to side in addition to taking cover. AM-Net where this flyer was posted, also lists two prices for the game, one is around $18k (assuming it is the deluxe 55″ version) and there is another price which is around $9k, which we can assume for the moment is a smaller, standard version of the game.
We will share more details on the game when we get them, stay tuned!
