Crossovers from traditions and moderns seen in Bahamut's 16-years' Anniversary

Bahamut Gamer's Community, as known as the most largest gaming community in Taiwan, celebrates its 16-years' anniversary last week in Taiwan by convening games from traditions to moderns with varied showcasing styles.

As 2012 GTI Asia Taipei Expo's alternations, this community-based event still attracted players although its showcasing scale varied on gaming series. In music game section, Sega's "maimai" is the only arcade game showcasing in this event.
Rather than experiencing popular game series, some communities chose to showcase some rare peripherals as of considering visitors' populations. In "Taiko no Tatsujin" section, a classic-styled arcade-simulated LCD display was introduced. According to its collector, this micro LCD display is designed for collection to salute the initial arcade machine of the first version of "Taiko no Tatsujin" by Namco Bandai.
