Witness Arcade Button-Mashing Madness

Last weekend, Kotaku East scoured the Amusement Operators Union (AOU) trade show for the craziest game coming to Japanese arcades in 2012. And what we found is a game as fun and simple as it is crazy.

Speed of Light is an arcade consisting of nothing but a wall of buttons and a digital counter. When a button lights up, you push it to get a point, with bonus points rewarded if you're able to keep a constant rhythm as you put out all the lights.


Check out the video above to see which of us became the Kotaku Speed of Light champion, me or Toshi Nakamura. For more on AOU, check out our photo gallery here.
