When it came to games at IAAPA, Dead Storm Pirates is one of those games I probably should have spent a little more time playing. Even though the game was essentially a beta it was still a lot of fun and it looked great too. Namco America has posted a new trailer of the game in action, showing off the game itself as opposed to the cabinet(which you can see here in case you have missed it). One thing that stands out to me with this game is the framerate as it’s quite smooth while throwing a lot of stuff at you on the screen and the sound will blow you away when you get into the cabinet.The game uses System 357, which is PS3 based hardware that has also been used in other arcades such as Tekken 6 and Razing Storm.
Dead Storm Pirates will be released at some point this year (Q2 2010?) worldwide.
