AOU is just starting and with that comes a little bit of news related to things we hadn’t heard about prior to today. First off, Taito has a new theater-style light gun shooter (sort of like Panic Museum) that they are showing off called Gaia Attack 4. The one thing to help set this apart – it has four guns. This isn’t the first time something like this has been tried but it certainly doesn’t happen often as the cabinet’s to support this many players isn’t something space-starved locations can carry. From the small graphics Taito is showing off this looks a bit quirky, you can see more here on the webpage they have set up for the game. It does use the Taito Type X2 hardware and thanks to the Editor we know that this to was developed by Gamewax. They are certainly getting around!

Also, Taito is showing off a new version of Hopping Road at the show, one made specifically for kids. Good call on their part as this game seemed like it would be a perfect fit for kids in the first place. Here is a picture of that next to the full size version, via AM-Net.
