Visited Fukuoka city today so of course I had to pay a visit to Sega Gigo which always have the latest stuff. Sorry for the crappy @ictures. They were taken with my phone hiding from the Sega Gigo staff :110:
First game that caught my eye was a new Fist of the North Star 2D fighter running on the Atomiswave by Sega and Arc System.
There were no play instructions so I found it quite odd. There are 5 buttons in total 3 of which I guess were punch while the other 2 were kick or at least I think. I played as Ken who seemed to do different special moves depending on what strength button I pressed. For example I could do a fire ball motion plus a punch but depending on which punch I used came out completely different moves. There are super specials as well but I had no idea how they were pulled off. I seemed to be just pulling of allsorts of crazy combos by just button bashing.
Graphically it's pretty nice in a Guilty Gear kind of way but could do with a little more animation I feel. background graphics and music all seem to be based on the animation as well as the games intro which features the original singing theme song :thumbsup: All together this looks like it could be pretty good once I get to a machine with a move and button guide.
Next up is a new Dragonball Z fighter by Banpresto again running on the Atomiswave. I never got a chance to play this one due to the amount of people around it but I did manage to grab a few shots with the phone before being pushed out the way by a rabbit Japanese Dragonball Otaku.
This shot was taken from a nice widescreen connected to player one's cabinet.
