As we already reported, in our JAEPO 2014 article, that Initial D Arcade Stage 8 Infinity has been announced to be released by SEGA on July 2014 (mind, this is the Japanese release date). But today we’re here to show you new pictures of the brand new cabinet (and more…) from the Japan Amusement Expo 2014.
Let’s start by saying that the game, beside being at JAEPO, is currently under location testing in several Japanese game centers.
Then let’s move to some new features that IDAS8 will have (translated by AB):
- A renewed “Legend of the Streets” story mode with special challenges taken from famous scenes of the manga such as “avoid spilling the cup of water” or “cause Iketani to faint”.
- Players can now choose what they display on screen: earned titles, tachometer type and even use the “cup of water”.
- The introduction of “D coins”. An in-game currency used for special tuning of the cars.
- New special ranks.
- Initial D Arcade Stage 7 AAX card data can be transfered to Initial D Arcade Stage 8 Infinity.
Now let’s proceed with the official arcade flyer!
A couple of in-game screenshots.
Here’s (finally) the cabinet itself at the SEGA booth. Ye, there are also the producer of the IDAS series and some pretty girls 😉
Yes, they’re also giving awat T-shirts…
Ok, we’ve pretty much done. This is just a bonus. Let’s enjoy some booth babes (and IDAS8 cabinets on the background).
