The GTI Asia Taipei Expo that took place this past week gave us some interesting news in terms of new games and now we have a few videos and some pictures to share of the show and a few of those new products.Included below the fold are videos of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 being played on an authentic arcade cab (along with news about a kit), Project X-Pher and Dido Kart 2 by InJoy Motion and a couple of videos showing various booths on the floor.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 as seen at the show. It might be of some interest to know that Namco has announced a kit price for this in Japan. The kit is coming this November for 698,000 Yen which is about $8700. It’s sad and unfortunate to see the Capcom attitude creeping into other high-profile arcade fighter releases. No indication if that’s a 2p or 1p kit either. The full cabinet version will be released in Japan in September, pushing it back from mid-Summer release probably due to the quake in March.
InJoy Motion has released a couple of trailers for both their new Project X-Pher and Dido Kart 2 arcade games:
Project X-Pher – It’s not in this video but in another video below you can see that this actually uses a yoke controller on both the single player and the driver’s side of the two player version.
Dido Kart 2 – here is the lo-fi version of the video. The slightly higher resolution has no sound so I’ll avoid posting that until a fixed version pops up
Here’s some walking around the floor from Youtube user Hawtian. We see some brief glimpses of various products there, including Speed Driver 3 and a new big rig truck racing game by IGS. You also get a glimpse at the new Beethoven music game by Game Plus. InJoy’s Project X-Pher can be seen towards the end of the second video. Other than that there are a number of slot, crane and other redemption games to be seen.
