More Virtua Cop 3 Goodness

Virtua Cop 3 Screenshots, etc.

Sega-AM2 is bringing another Virtua Cop game to the arcades.

Sega-AM2, the division of Sega behind the Virtua Fighter series, had Virtua Cop 3 on display at a recent press event in Japan. The basic mechanics of the game will be similar to previous games in the Virtua Cop series, but the development team has added a new skill called the ES-mode. This particular ability lets players produce a bullet-time-like effect that slows down projectiles, allowing them to shoot down bullets and other projectiles. However, there's an ES-mode meter that drains every time the skill is used, so players can't use it constantly throughout the game.

Virtua Cop 3 is being developed on the Xbox-powered Chihiro arcade board, and it's currently scheduled for release in Japanese arcades this April.

It's a matter of economics.

[*]The hardware is already developed and relatively cheap.

[*]People already know how to program it.

[*]Home conversions are very cheap and easy to do.

I'm of the opinion that it's the game itself, rather than the hardware it runs on, that's important.
