Darius Burst Arcade
Taito’s latest cabinet for the continuing saga of blasting the life robotic aquatic reminds me why it’s miserable living in a place where you’ve got better odds of being struck by lightening than finding an arcade.

Darius Burst Another Chronicle goes uber-wide for four players later this year in Japan according to the official site.

Add this to the list of reasons it may finally be time to organize a very long Gamesugar super-shmup-friends trip overseas.

Your Taito Fun Fact

Filed under: News Feed — Tags: , , — Jamie Love @ 3:25 pm

I happened to be revisiting Taito’s page on Facebook today and was reminded about this picture of one sweet bus parked outside their Ebina Development Center that I’d seen earlier this month. Apparently there are two of these, used to take employees to and from the train station.

I’m pretty sure the streets here in Toronto would be a lot more fun with a few of these kicking around, but I’d also go for a Capybara themed ride if someone can make that happen.

The Invasion is Coming…, Again

Space Invaders
In other following up on Famitsu news, it appears that Square-Enix’s E3 2010 strategy is to deliver at least 90% of what I’ve always wanted. I can’t absolutely prove that, I haven’t seen Einhander show up yet, but there is a trailer for Space Invaders Infinity Gene, which is hitting the show next week before its release for XBLA and PSN later this year.

Far from another pointless Extreme edition, Infinity Gene is a title I’ve been wanting on the consoles along with plenty of other people.

As always, catch the trailer after the break and decide if you want to be excessively happy about the news too.
