Japan Amusement Expo 2016 Bustling With Life




Attendees of this year’s Japan Amusement Expo were given the opportunity to try their hand at several upcoming arcade games, bound to be a wholesome treat for any avid arcade-goer and proving that the arcade scene in Japan is far from dead (or entirely pachi-slot dominated) – unlike that of the western world.

A short glimpse at the event’s various festivities and arcade games:

    Wow, even arcade games are getting into microtransactions-

    More claw arms for the UFO catcher if you pay more, courtesy of Taito!

    Arcade games had microtransactions a long time ago.
    Double Dragon 3 required you pay extra money to buy in-game techniques, etc.

    Ironically home consoles are probably deader than the arcades in Japan lol.

    That beer vendor idea would make the fem-nazis come out of the woodwork.

    The next step is for Koei Tecmo to release their own competing beer vendor system featuring Soft Engine.
