J's Chimes: Where's The Arcade Game?

It's been a long time since I've visited the video game centers and went searching around for any Japanese games that may still be around. Surprisingly the ever so popular game in Japan a few years back titled Otomedius is gone. Seriously the machine is still so new that you can feel it from the controls, the screen to the machine that's so white and clean, it's almost not been used much before. It's a pity though that such games are not appreciated in Singapore. Anyway here's the opening introduction for the game in video game centers and it's on a 800 x 600 resolution screen...

Luckily, an Xbox 360 version of it came on sale last year and immediately bought it online that time at a price of SGD$80+ which shot up to about a hundred because of the increasing value of the US currency. This is a HD resolution of the game and thus the rectangular screen... Relive the game today and it sure brings back memories that time I tried it at the game center. Doubt this game will appear ever again because it's not often been played. I love the Xbox 360 opening intro better than the arcade version....
