While we did get a first look at Time Crisis 5 last week, the quality was admittedly very poor as the clips were emailed. You can’t beat direct footage and Bandai Namco Amusements has already posted this neat video showing some direct HD footage from the game for us to enjoy. It is a full promo for the game which also shows how the dual pedal system operates. I like how that works as it will be useful in the boss battles as well. I really, really hope that a “standard” version of this game is released (with a smaller cabinet and price) as we saw in the past.
In checking some fresh videos posted to Youtube, Sega Amusements has also posted some content from EAG 2015. First is the re-designed Showdown deluxe cabinet (which formerly had huge curved screens) followed by the new 80″ version of Transformers: Human Alliance. It almost feels like our weekend Newsbag with the amount of stuff I’m coming across this afternoon!
And finally an odd duck – I caught wind of this Korean company called Infuny which is currently looking at jumping into the US market with a downsized/arcade version of their hunting game which is currently called Gun Pang. This setup is very similar to another Korean company called Rassen that was attempting to do the same thing a few years back; I really thought they were the same company that was just operating under a new name but the person that shared these with me said they were not familiar with Rassen. We’ll have to wait and see if they are successful in arcadifying this for the US market or not. The elephant in the room so to speak is the Big Buck Hunter series, which still reigns supreme in the market of arcade hunting games.
