UPDATE: The Stinger Report also sent us some images of the games in London but I accidentally overlooked the attachments.

The Stinger Report has sent us the rundown on two new arcade titles that are headed to the UK and specifically London. The first is Haunted Museum, which we first heard about at IAAPA but since then there had been no information on the game; the second is the well-known fighter King Of Fighters XII. The Stinger says the following about Taito’s Haunted Museum:

The twin gun game theatre experience incorporates impressive 3D graphics, special vibrating guns and a level of play that will give Rambo and House of the Dead a run for their money.

To get a better idea of those graphics, click on the thumbnails below (images via ITMedia).  As for the cabinet, I noticed that it follows Konami’s recent light-gun game designs, as was seen with Silent Hill and Castlevania (ok, CV isn’t technically a light-gun game). I also wonder if the Haunted Museum theme has anything to do with “Night at the Museum” with a weird edge. The themes are quite varied, from Egypt, to killer clowns to space battles so at the very least it offers something for everyone.

    I was at the trocedero on the 18th and Haunted museum was already there , at the front of the arcade near the DDRX machine. Seems pretty cool

    I played it for a while and enjoyed the expereince. The CGI is okay and the game is fun.
