The limited edition unit is gorgeous. Funny that they used the same bi-colour case as for Aka & Blue for the cartridge.
The mechs are red and blue ;)

Congrats Pang, that Strania EX unit looks stunning. :awe:

I'd love to hear your impressions of the games when you get a chance, especially Infinos as that looks more like my cup of tea. I'm getting strong Last Resort vibes from the videos, which is a very good thing.

Is there any truth to this?



I've been holding off on buying anything, but if the games are gonna start disappearing... it'd be good to have a heads up on how long I have.

As your in the US it would be cheaper to buy direct rather than from a reseller.

IIRC Shou stated that they will continue to make small runs whilst the demand is there.

Oh yeah, I'd just be buying direct. Just wasn't sure if EXA was going to limit availability so soon.

In regards to that announcement of Aka & Blue Type R not going to produce anymore carts, I am not surprised about that. Aka & Blue's legacy will be fondly remembered as the shmup that brought back arcades before SDOJ EXA, if that game gets released when the pandemic is mostly over and done with.

Additionally with Exa Arcadia's current state is being a niche arcade platform, despite an impressive 200+ officially reported hardware units sold globally, the pandemic has forced them to continue playing safe by selling kits and restricting their active marketing to Japan. All they can really do now is promote new products in hopes of producing more hardware from diversified manufacturing plants.

So what did he tell you?

No idea how many runs have been made but it's been out of stock at least a couple of times on their website.

I suppose the point is at some point in time those runs have to stop so maybe now is the time for that

Tanoshimasu has requested one last call on Aka & Blue Type-R sales before moving on.

I am sure people here know by now that they are rather odd in how they do things but this is their game and request.
If you are interested in the game and do not want to pay double the retail price down the line due to its rarity then it would be wise to buy while you can.

We are currently sold out of exA-Arcadia systems due to high demand from Japan and expect to have little supply for the rest of the year due to even more demand created by SDOJ and the troubles related to COVID.

Thanks for clearing that up. :thumbup: 8-)

Assuming the loke test goes well pre orders for SDOJ can't be that far off. :awe:

Thank you @Shou for clearing things up. I did believe all economic activities will be slowed down from the COVID-19, including arcade.

Wish for everyone to be the best they can be during uncertain times like this.

As for Tanoshimasu, it seems that developers have power on how many units can be made. Some may want to produce endlessly, while others would produce according to the market or simply have a limited run.

I wish I could afford to buy an Exa Arcadia unit, but maybe later down the road.

(I even wish the forums have a "thumbs up" button on posts)

Got it. In the future, it'd be good to know which other games are about to cease production.
