Action Deka isn’t Konami’s first motion controlled arcade game. Police 911 introduced head tilting dodging pre-Wii and there is also an unreleased Castlevania Arcade game which handles sort of like Blade of Honor. However, Action Deka is more versatile than all of Konami’s previous experiments.
After players drop coins into Action Deka they grab a controller with each hand. When enemies appear you can punch by swinging your fists. Other times you use the controller as a gun and shoot targets like any regular a light gun game. The controllers are also used to mimic steering a car and tossing stuff like plates. All of the variation makes Action Deka look like fun if you can find a machine. Action Deka cabinets are primarily in Japan and they are about to be updated with a new stage. Some shrewd arcade owners may have imported machines (if you find one let us know), but I think we will eventually get to play Action Deka. This game is made for the Wii and if Konami had no problems releasing Target Terror I can’t imagine why they would pass on publishing this.
