JAEPO 2020 News Roundup: Taito

    This year, Final Weapon had the chance to go and cover the Japanese Arcade and Amusement Expo in Chiba, Japan to see all of the newest arcade games being released onto the market in 2020 and beyond.
    As with every year at JAEPO, most of the news comes from 4 or 5 major companies. This article will be covering news from Taito’s booth at JAEPO.

    Taito had a lot going on at its booth this year. In particular they were showing off their new redemption game based on the Dragon Quest series being aimed at Japanese arcades and Pachinko Parlors.

    Taito was also showing off their new rhythm game, Tetote Connect, which at JAEPO was announced to have Vocaloid songs crossing over into it upon release. The game was on location test at the Taito booth and while I didn’t get a chance to play it, it seemed to be incredibly popular.

    A new Space Invaders redemption title was also being showcased at the Taito booth along with their currently released Gun Arena cabinet. These both also seemed to be pretty popular with expo goers. The Space Invaders game will most likely be seeing a worldwide release but this isn’t confirmed. However considering previous Space Invaders based redemption games have been doing well in western arcades I wouldn’t be surprised if we see it crop up overseas soon.

    That wraps up most of the major announcements for Taito this year. Stay tuned to Final Weapon for more news on JAEPO 2020.
