To be fair, most of Taito's output (outside the obvious favourites) is largely untapped even by those who'd consider themselves big arcade gamers. Even on here, the handful of games I mentioned, for example, are unlikely to see much discussion, though they merit plenty. XoPachi's was a nice idea! :P


Yeah, that's true.

Case in point, I only got to know about Raimais when I stumbled across this blog post; there's so much love for the game there, you would be hard pressed to not diving straight into the game and spending a few hours with it like I did. I still need to work on that good ending 1CC though.

Personally, I'm slightly more interested in their B.C output, especially the ones that came out during the stone age.

AFAIK, Space Invaders Extreme, Groove Coaster, and SI Infinity Gene were from internal teams at Taito.

Did anyone ever locate a Vertexer board? Meaning anyone that would dump it? I'm sure it's shown up on Yahoo at some point.

Taito's a weird one. Stellar output (I mean, they have their on music "band") but to tell a youngster now that it was one of the "Big 3" when arcades were in their infancy, they'd probably choke on their avocado toast. And of course, it being founded by a non-Japanese (in Japan) is pretty amazing. Wikipedia says that his daughter, who lives in SoCal, still owns 8.5% of the stock!

I think I remember some years ago, Shou had access to the board.
Dunno if anything happened after that, though.
