AOU is going on right now in Tokyo and will last the whole weekend. My friend – who also runs andriasang.com GO VISIT IT! – is there and he’s sending me some information while he waits in line for some products, so if anything new shows up I’ll add it to this post.
Atlus rejoins arcade biz with new Power Instinct game (info + screens)
Project Cerberus - Sega’s Naomi-based 2D Fighter
Previously I made a post about a new Sega 2D fighter, in collaboration with Arc Systems.
Closed thread, but info here: http://forums.shoryuken.com/showthread.php?t=175387
Turns out my info was half right. Yes, Sega has a new 2D fighter. No, it is not in collaboration with Arc Systems. It’s with Milestone, and the title of the game (tentatively) is Project Cerberus, running on the Naomi board. That’s all the info I have right now. Andriasang.com will have more info once the show is over in about 6 hours. If you want to keep up to date by yourself, visit AndriaSang’s live blog, as he might be blogging from the show floor from time to time: http://www.andriasang.com/e/blogs/anoop/
New Arcade Board - RingEdge/Wide
Sega is developing two separate boards. Ringedge appears to be the higher end of the two, with Sega’s press release stating that it’s on the technological forefront. Ringwide, on the other hand, promises “cost performance,” suggesting it will be more of a budget board.
