Neon FM is an Insane New Music Rhythm Arcade Game

So I got an email from the folks at Unit-e Technologies about their fascinating new music/rhythm arcade game, Neon FM. Featured above, you can view a top 10 list of songs from the game’s appearance at MAGFest 2014, a yearly music/gaming convention.

The game has been in the making for roughly ten years, with the original studio and project going bankrupt due to a number of issues – including patent grievances with Konami. Last year, the project was brought to life again and saw the game rebuilt with a new engine, soundtrack, and overall design.

While the arcade cabinet has been regularly available in arcades (and to order for a whopping price tag), the team at Unit-e Technologies is also bringing the experience to both iOS and Android in the near future.

I have to finish this off with a plea to Unit-e: we’d gladly accept a kind donation to the Niche Gamer offices, in the form of a Neon FM cabinet. All jokes aside – what songs stood out the most to you? Have you managed to get some hands on time with the game?

You can submit inquiries for acquiring an arcade cabinet here via the games official website.

    So how long do I have to wait before Konami takes this to court again? Konami sure likes monopoly in those music/rhythm/beat games.

    I must say though, this looks incredibly fun.

    This really looks quite awesome! I just hope there’s more variety to the music, because the abundance of dubstep and very similar music in this video is just a little disappointing. Not that I dislike them, but that they simply aren’t my personal preference, and I enjoy variety.

    The music sounds awesome and the game looks sweet 0-0. I … wish I could have one of those cabinets T.T, I wonder if they’ll still be available 3 years from now when I can actually afford one and have a place to put it lol.
