I don't know if there's already a topic like this, so feel free to lock it if it does..

I was google-ing gundam and I stumbled upon this.. I don't know if this thing is old or new, but what the hell..

http://www.akihabaranews.com/en/review-85-Akihabara+News+tests+Senjo+No+Kizuna,+the+ultimate+Mecha+Simulator+Arcade+Game..html




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.



Banpresto (with Bandai), released this summer a new Arcade video game based on the Gundam world, called Senjo No Kizuna. But hold on, we are not talking about a regular Arcade game system, here, but a realistic simulator where you will pilot a Mecha and fight against other players all across Japan, or the game center where you are located!
Banpresto worked very hard to make this as real as possible, and you will control your Mecha as if you were in the anime; also, thanks to a panoramic view, you will really have the feeling of being onboard one of these gigantic Japanese robots. If you are a frequent player, Banpresto can also offer you the possibility to log your score, fight, and allow you to upgrade your robot, just as if you were a Mecha Pilot.



this is so awesome.. if ever I go to Japan.. I'll definitely play this..

Looks good.... Mugen no frontier was sweet and now this....Leave it to Banpresto and Bandai [or is it BamCo now?Bandai Namco that is] to create a good mecha simulator... Im impressed....

Any chance it will be ported oversees?? guess not... Now im itching to go to Japan....

Does it simulate you vomiting all over the cockpit from the rigid bipedal motion?
