Remotes? Lego Controlled Arcade Games Are The Future (Update: Videos!)

By Spencer . January 27, 2009 . 5:03pm


Move over joysticks and controllers. Sega is working on a block controlled arcade game called Block Pipo. Players use the blocks to control the on screen characters which makes Block Pipo sound like a Lego stacking game. Block Pipo is a cooperative game, but it can also be a competitive one if two machines are linked together. The final machine won’t be out in Japan until this summer, but we should hear more about Block Pipo next month when it makes its first appearance at AOU 2009.

Update: Well, it looks like AOU 2009 won’t be the first place Block Pipo is shown. Thanks to Madebyluke we have an early look at the game and it looks creative, but potentially problematic. What if someone pilfers all the blocks?
