Taito today announced that it has signed an agreement with Valve Software to release Half-Life 2 in arcades. It will run on Taito's new arcade hardware, which is called the TypeX. Given the title's strong name recognition, Taito hopes to release the arcade version worldwide, and it is currently slated for a summer 2005 release.

It is said that there will be three different gaming modes: story-based mode, cooperative-mode trough a network connection and a mode in which you can fight against players from other arcades.
