While I primarily use retro arcade games for this feature, I couldn't pass up a chance to share this new (and completely bizarre) Taito cabinet.
Meet Frightfearland, a two-player shooter set in a spooky carnival.
The game launched in Japan earlier this year and Global VR obtained the US publishing license, so you could eventually encounter one of these machines in the wild…though that'll probably be in a soiled and forgotten corner of a movie theater.
I've included a gameplay video after the jump. While the character models are rather flat and uninspired, Frightfearland looks good in motion. Oh, and do be careful of the montage of creepy clown pictures before the actual footage starts.
