Looks Promising: Pokemon Arcade Game Coming To Japan
This is Pokemon Tretta, a stand-up arcade game that's dropping in Japan this July. It plays similar to the existing video games, but everytime you discover a new Pokemon it spits out a little plastic collector chip with the monster's name and picture on it that can be scanned and used in future games. Plus it has a spinning wheel! Flashing lights, a spinning wheel and prizes? It's like an entire carnival packed into a single arcade game! The only thing it's missing is a fat kid puking hotdog on the tilt-a-whirl. That was me guys -- I was that fat kid. Plus my mom wouldn't buy me another hotdog because she said I wasted the first one.
Hit the jump for a shot of the little collectible coin thingies, which kinda look like fancy poker chips.
Thanks to Patrick, who only plays pinball at the arcade. BRING IT, I WILL DESTROY YOU.
