The only news worth reading
hellomrkearns beat me to it lol
Seeing as the thread’s bumped, I might as well mention my vague memories of learning that Taito had a restaurant/arcade hybrid established in Hawaii I think in the 80s. They might have also had their own tokens? I haven’t been able to find any proof that this ever existed, though; the closest I have found are these records of a holding corporation from around that time.
Video_Game_King Taito Hawaii distributed games. Telenet Japan had a restaurant/arcade in Hawaii in the 1990s called Cosmic Fantasy.
Still dreading this whole Microids x Taito collaboration but at least the first project makes kinda sense. Pastagames (Pix The Cat) is developing an Arkanoid sequel.
