Taito is giving Elevator Action fans another dose of floor-changing espionage action with the beautifully named Elevator Action: Death Parade. What separates Death Parade apart from its predecessors? Well it's a light gun shooter.

More importantly, it's a light gun shooter with functioning elevator doors on the cabinet, doors that open and close to change up the action and provide scene transitions. This video of the arcade game in action, via Siliconera, shows Elevator Action: Death Parade's door gimmick working at the most recent AOU expo in Japan. As you can see, players will have to shoot a great many things while also trying to find safety behind elevator doors.

Sure, it's shaky-cam footage of an arcade light gun shooter you're probably never going to play outside of Tokyo's game centers, but it's also brilliant.
