Music video games and gun shooting games are popular genres in arcade but seems that both players won't overlap with each other. What happen if they combine? The TAITO's "MUSIC GUNGUN!" will be a good experiment to see.
The combination is totally unique and never existed before, so you might feel it inexplicable. But a glance to these videos will tell you the idea.
Read on for detail.
