The Japanese Arcade Gaming Industry is Not Dead!


Sorry about the lack of updates since May. There really has been no news worth reporting with any solid dates or anything that is news worthy honestly in the Arcade scene. Seems like there is always a huge gap between May and November until a major release as most Japanese companies release their big guns during the Holiday season and 1rst quarter of the year so they can get those great financial reports in April. Since April there has been a total lack of games released of in Japan. Some of this can also be attributed to the terrible Earthquake that hit Japan in March. Meanwhile Arcade staples like Cave are working on other projects and Capcom is busy with the usual upgrades and Crossover titles. SNK has absolutely no games in the arcade pipeline and King Of Fighters XIII on home consoles is the major release of the holidays for 2d game fans (The companies future is probally riding on this title). Here are some of the games we have to look forward to confirmed to be released on home consoles in the next 12 months.

Free game systems like Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, etc are attractions for all the children of today. Many companies offer such products during the promotional activities of the various brands.
