Perhaps the most creative game at this year’s JAEPO arcade game expo was e Sports Ground. Utilising a series of motion tracking cameras and projectors, the game transforms the floor into the game screen and your body into the controller.
In many ways, e Sports Ground is a retro game collection containing some of the most popular games from the very dawn of gaming — except that you are now “in the game”, so to speak. You become the paddle in games like Pong and Arkanoid, for example. One co-op game is reminiscent of Asteroid with one player dodging incoming asteroids while the other acts as a shield against the asteroids.

e Sports Ground was released on November 11, 2011. Representatives were unsure as the the possibility of an international release.
