Last of the big names is Konami. I have to say thier stand was a bit on the sparse side. Guitar Freaks & Drum Mania V4 where present and attracting a lot of attention from players. Wacky Races also made an appearance on the stand, although, as I have said already this was on various stands around the show. Finally Silent Hill rounded off the rest of the big games on the Konami stand.
As you may remember I’m already familiar with two of these game from the location tests I checked out last year. For those of you who missed these posts, which included photos, videos and my impressions, why not check them out;

Silent Hill at ATEi seemed the same as what I played at the location test in Finchley, and Wacky Races again was pretty much the same from what I’d could tell.
The only other game on the Konami of note was a Eledees (or Elebits in the US) redemption game which was pretty neat. I’m sure this style of game has been done before, but it is a nice use of one of thier console IP’s. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this Wii title hit this link to find out more and check out the picture below of the cabinet.
Lastly I want to put out a question to you all (this isn’t the first time either). Has anyone seen any Pro Evo Aracdes out and about? There was no sign of it at this years ATEi and I’m wondering what the hell happened to it?
