Sega has a new arcade racer coming out next on the 3rd but for some strange reason, they didn’t give the game any booth space at AOU2011. That game is Initial D Arcade Stage 6 AA, and today they have released a new promotional trailer for the game. They also have indicated that players who have an ID5 card can transfer their data over to the new game, which is always an important factor in getting loyal players of an older game to pick up the new one.
As for availability, I’m not aware of many places outside of Japan and Southeast Asia that have carried the latest ID games. So whether that trend will continue is something we will have to wait and see on
Super Monkey Ball Ticket Blitz
Also in Sega arcade news, I received a release from them showing that Super Monkey Ball Ticket Blitz is now shipping. I was impressed by this game at IAAPA 2010 and it will be making an appearance next week at both the Amusement Expo and International Pizza Expo, which are taking place in Las Vegas.
