Gundam Simulator of the Century
Trust the Japanese to come up with Senjo No Kizuna, a Gundam simulator at arcades that allows the player to control a mech using dual joysticks and foot pedals. This kinda reminds me of the Mechwarrior franchise, and it would be nice to see the computer experience being translated to the arcade environment. Each of these Gundam simulator pods can seat only one, and boasts a panoramic display as well as network connectivity, allowing players to battle others in adjoining pods or in other arcades in a 5 vs 5 epic battle. You’ll also be issued a Pilot Card that stores all your combat data in order to build up a respectable history, just like those Initial D racing simulators.
