SquareEnixs’ new coin-op game The Lord of Vermilion began it’s testing phase in Japan today and as seen on Game Watch, it’s already a smashing success. A line of people eager to play the new game was seen coming out of the arcade where the game is testing and going around the block. We had a post about the Lord of Vermilion a couple of weeks ago with some details on the game and thanks to a link from the Stinger Report we have more pictures of the game in action. I also managed to find a video of the game on youtube. I now wonder how this will pan out overseas – Sega is testing one card based game in the States and if it does well I could imagine seeing other companies taking notice and bringing their card games to venues outside of Japan as well. You can click on the images below to get a better look at the cabinet and the game – I really like the trackball they used, it almost looks like a mystical orb. Pictures via Game Watch.
