jp Nippon Marathon Turbo Hyper Running

Nippon Marathon Turbo Hyper RunningSan! Ni! Ichi! Hajime!!!, Nippon Marathon, the crazy game from onion soup interactive is coming to exA-Arcadia today! This arcade version faster than the domestic version is called Nippon Marathon Turbo Hyper Running. The goal of the game is to run and avoid all the obstacles, each one crazier than the other (barrels, animals, bicycles,...) as seen in some Japanese TV shows. The story is simple: the Nippon Marathon takes place every year. Thousands of candidates apply to participate in the marathon, but only 100 of them make it through the qualification stage. Competitors run in groups of four and accumulate points as they go along. The dream of each participant is to be at the top of the leaderboard at the end of the gruelling race. All races are original: from busy city streets to village alleys, bustling markets, mountain top shrines, supermarkets and even dangerous sake distilleries!). The arcade version contains 3 exclusive levels. The characters are not to be outdone with their totally crazy look (a lobster-man, a man dressed as a schoolgirl, a girl with a unicorn outfit,...). The handling is very simple, the player controls the character who runs, he can jump, avoid obstacles, dash, throw objects while negotiating perilous passages such as dashing across planks precariously balanced over waterfalls. Nippon Marathon Turbo Hyper Running is the perfect game for family entertainment centres and bars: groups of friends can play up to 4 and laughter is guaranteed. It is also perfect for hardcore arcades to score on the most difficult levels... The game is in Japanese and English and runs in 16:9 HD Widescreen and 4:3 SD CRT. The kit comes with an A1 poster (art by Tatsuya Ishikawa, famous for his work on Numan Athletics and Mach Breakers), 3 instruction sheets and instruction strips (in Japanese and English). You can order your copy from Red Sun Systems.

ca Vs. From Below

Vs. From BelowA new game for Nintendo Vs. System is released today! Vs. From Below is the first game to be released on this hardware for 30 years and it's made by Matt Hughson (with art by Haller Zoltán and sound by Tuï). It may looks like a typical Tetris game but has an extra difficulty in the form of a giant octopus (a kraken) that pushes blocks upward with its tentacles. Vs. From Below features 3 game modes: "Timed" where the Kraken attacks every 10 seconds (pushing garbage blocks onto the screen), "Fixed" where the Kraken attacks every time a block lands and "Classic" where the Kraken is sleeping, causing no threat. Note that the garbage blocks created by the Kraken can be cleared like normal blocks. As you see the Classic mode is your usual Tetris but with both soft and hard drops available. Best of all: the game is free! You will need 10 64Kbit EPROMs to play this game on your Vs. System (5 for a Vs. Unisystem). You can use any PPU chip but you have to set the dipswitches accordingly to display the correct colours depending on your chip. If you want to see the game in action, there's a trailer on the official website. You can download the game here: https://mhughson.itch.io/from-below.

uk EAG Online 2021

EAG Online 2021Due to COVID-19 measures, EAG International will not take place like every year at ExCeL London in January 2021. However, the organizers had the very good idea to organise EAG Online! This new trade fair format will be held entirely online, as the name suggests, and will take place from January 27 to 28. As year 2020 has been a disaster for operators, this will be an opportunity for them to look toward the future and to find out what's new from manufacturers and distributors and to meet new partners online. Exhibitors will be able to upload photos, videos,... and organise live chats with visitors. As with the classic version of EAG, this edition will bring seminars about extremely interesting topics such as life after Brexit, cashless payment solutions, staff training and the latest industry developments in Europe. As EAG chairman Martin Burling explains, although nothing will ever replace a face-to-face meeting, an online event also has advantages such as saving time and money on travel and accommodations. Visitors and exhibitors will certainly appreciate this in these difficult times! Access to EAG Online is free of charge and registration is open at https://www.engagez.net/node/584280/eventregistration. Please note that this year, Arcade Belgium will be there with a virtual stand to present the latest arcade releases!
