I was lucky enough to be able to attend a day of IAAPA again this year. IAAPA is THE worldwide Arcade and Amusement expo. I’m fortunate that it takes place in Orlando, FL, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to get this opportunity.
One of the highlights of the trade show was that Sega was there showing off the new to North America “Luigi’s Mansion Arcade”. This has been in Japan for two years now, but this is the first time (other than one location test) that a Luigi’s Mansion Arcade unit has been in the States. It’s a very neat game. It’s an on rails shooter game, where your gun is an all in one flashlight and vacuum cleaner. You stun the ghosts with the flashlight, then suck them into your vacuum. It’s a lot of fun, and I hope it gets translated and a few places pick them up.
