We finally have an extensive look at what went on at the GTI Asia China Expo 2010 and along with plenty of games came a few surprises. I’m still trying to find any video posted from the event online but so far no luck – if anything substantial comes along I’ll update this post. Some of the games you’ll see below: the first non-glasses stereoscopic 3D arcade game, Disney’s 3D Ping Pong; Pentavision’s DJ MAx Technika 2; Dino Survivor 4D by Belrare; a new version of Konami’s Mocap Sports; Taito’s Gaia Attack 4; Hypaa’s Mozarc; Andamiro’s Pump It Up Fiesta; a 10-player game called Ocean Spirit 2 and much more than we had seen previously.
These photos are from a Google Picasa album by “David”. I’ve pulled most of the video game highlights from there.
Namco had a booth, being one of the few companies on hand with some major international recognition
For some reason Namco’s Nirin was setup at a different booth, probably a distributor; Same thing with Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune 3.
A few Konami games were on hand at the Game+ booth, first with Byon Byon and then surprisingly with a smaller screen version of Mocap Sports. Last we had seen of MS, it had a huge screen and was only seen in Japan. You can also see a couple of Sega games in the background, Tetris Giant in the first pic, Brick People in the second.
Next to Byon Byon sat Taito’s Gaia Attack 4
Sega’s Giant Tetris being used to it’s full potential. Sega reps had mentioned that the system could project up to a 150″ screen but surprisingly they didn’t set it up for that. Players with mini-skirts are optional.
Andamiro’s Pump It Up Fiesta 2010
Disney’s 3D Ping Pong. Unfortunately this is the only pic of this game in the collection, we’re still eagerly waiting to see a video of this one in action since it offers goggles-free 3D gaming, which is becoming a bigger deal out there. I also believe that Chicken War is also one of 3D Games’ titles but hard to tell what it is – a shmup, maybe?
DJ Max Techinka 2 was there to grab some support, which was important since there were several DJMT clones on the show floor
The Belrare booth. Belrare’s push to become a major developer of games in China is producing great results as you can see below. The major attraction at their booth is Dino Survivor(starting with the 4th pic down), which we discussed here previously. I really like the cabinet artwork and the mini-chainguns are a nice touch. Graphically it’s hard to tell what it’s really like without seeing it in 3D but notice that the HUD looks an awful lot like Deadstorm Pirates. I wonder if this game is one reason for Namco deciding to give us DSP in 3D next year. It’s also good to see the Pong Pong table up close(3rd pic down), the control on this is quite different as it’s a sliding button.
The Tecway booth sat next to Belrare’s and there are some interesting things you can see in this photo – Sport’s Run (which uses Tetris Giant controls), Magic DJ (DJ Max Technika like game) and a Tank! Tank! Tank! clone
The MCross multi-game motion system at the Foshan Vrin Technical booth. They also had a machine called the 6Rider, which is a 4D motion theater.
Topfull Technology booth with a Brick People setup (or a clone) as well as some sort of shooting game in the back. It looks like it’s one of those airsoft gun shooters.
Wahlap Technologies had an impressive booth featuring We Dancing Online 2 but nothing else was shown in the album
Hypaa shows off Mozarc and Theia
After-the-fact update: Mozarc made an appearance at IAAPA 2010. Here it is in action:
Speed Driver by IGS in cabinets much like Taito’s D1GP. Speed Driver is a competitor to Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune.
The Lanhai Technology booth, featuring a four player shooting game by the name of Union Air Force. I’d like to see how this one plays
Pandora’s Adventure II, a 3D game we covered a short time ago by International Dragon World. The cabinet looks better than we had seen in drawings but that’s not saying much given the…interesting color scheme going on here.
The Xiongye booth. They had the Panzer Elite Action clone and next to that a King of Dancer 2 machine.
Universal Soldier. This looks like it could be cool although the motion base seems unnecessary
The 10-player Ocean Spirit 2 at a booth that has no English name under the title.
The Baohui Technology booth with Speed Rider 2 by IGS.
The Grip Strength 2. I have no idea what they’ve added to this to make it different as the cabinet looks the same as the first.
The uBeat clone returns at a booth called Rilong
Stern’s Batman pinball was there, although Stern didn’t have any direct representation at the show
The Kexin booth appears to have some interesting games to look at but I can’t find a website for them and this pic is too far away to get a better idea
The Hua Tong booth
Now for games by unknown companies. This is the most frustrating aspect of these shows as sometimes we see a game that we’d love to learn more about but it’s quite difficult to do.
A 3D fighter with 2011 in the title. Perhaps a fighter fan can recognize if this is a clone of something else or if it might be an original?
This looks like it might be a 3D game of some kind judging by the poster in the booth and the guy playing the game with glasses which could be of the 3D kind but it’s really hard to say
A shooting gallery game with a sleek cabinet design
Stacker and Winners Cube clones. Some sort of shmup in the background
Dance Super Station by Unknown
Another dancing game
DJ Club – quite a colorful control panel.
Jazz Hero. I guess it was only a matter of time, even though it’s missing a few instruments for a proper jazz setup.
King of Strength by unknown
Here’s a booth with an unknown game, something with a guy who looks like he might be skydiving
