Continuing the coverage on the London Preview 08 the Stinger also got a look at what Namco and others had to offer.In Europe Namco is teamed up with Brent Sales, which also sells games from Raw Thrills.
Namco – They only had one major new release to show off, Maximum Tune 3. A 4 player setup was available and offers a “hardcore view of the custom street car race experience.”
Mario Kart 2 was setup right next to Maximum Tune 3 to offer a softer racing style typical with the Mario Kart format.
Raw Thrills – Fast and Furious: Drift was onsite at the Namco Bandai booth, along with other Raw Thrills title such as Super Bike and Big Buck Hunter Pro.
An interesting and unique game known as iGO: Panzer Elite simulator was also seen here – I am not sure if this is Triotech product or not as the cabinet looks similar to something I have seen before (although I didn’t have a chance to play it). This allows players to experience WWII tank action with a unique simulator setup.
