February 2006 will finally see the birth of the third episode of this shooting series, according to G-Para and Game Watch. That’s a new ‘high tension MAX system’, new characters for a total of nine, and ten brand new stages, but unfortunately there are some poor quality visuals, which make even the previous episode look great.
The link is actually about all upcoming Type-X games, so don’t miss the direct feed screens of Taisen Hot Gimmick 5, while you’re there.
<Brandon’s note: Also check out the Half-Life 2 cabinet, which sports some interesting controls, essentially a mouse and flight stick. The visuals actually look decent as well! I think we’re finally seeing the upgraded Type-X board Taito promised upon the system’s release.>
