So apparently there still is such a thing as arcades in Japan. Also apparent, Sega still makes games for these “arcades” and good ones too!
Developed by AM2, Border Break features customizable robots, 20 man battles (10 vs. 10) and a pretty unusual (for arcades) control scheme. Gone are the twin sticks of our beloved Virtual On. Now massive online mech battles are controlled with a flight throttle and mouse!(?)
Now obviously we won’t likely see this beautiful beast at any of the 3 remaining American arcades, but a PC/Xbox 360 port does seem likely after Sega showed of it’s new arcade hardware that the game is running on (Windows OS/ NVIDIA GPU’s).
