Gimmick! exAct☆MIX will be on location test from Friday, December 27, 2019 to Friday, January 3, 2020 at Takadanobaba Game Center Mikado in Japan.
Developed exclusively for exA-Arcadia by Team EXA AM1, Gimmick! exAct☆MIX is a full remake of Sunsoft’s obscure 1992 Famicom platformer.
This updated iteration will boast “an all-new arranged soundtrack by Manabu Namiki, all new artwork, native 1080p widescreen support, and all-new scoring systems,” according to a tweet released by exA-Arcadia.

I’ve been deeply intrigued by the exA-Arcadia release of Gimmick! since it was first announced at JAEPO 2019. Alhough I haven’t played the original Famicon version, I love platformers of every variety, so I know this is right up my alley.
I’m also very excited to see any platformer grace arcades, as we in the coin-op space been all too starved of the genre for many years.
All in all, I can’t wait to see how Gimmick! exAct☆MIX shapes up upon release. Here’s hoping it’s a solid title that finds favor on the market.
Keep it real, ya sweaty nerds.
