Taito: The Arcade Leader Brings it Home (Commodore Magazine - May 1989)

This is an article from the May 1989 issue of Commodore Magazine that focuses on Taito's arcade to home game ports. There aren't a lot of images in these scans, unfortunately, but plenty of text, the majority of which is of the writer comparing the arcade games to the Commodore 64 versions. Early in the article it is interesting to hear how Taito held off on Amiga conversions at the same time because the quality would have been high enough to draw business away from the arcade games. While founded in Japan, Taito was actually started by a Ukrainian businessman and you can read a bit more about the company history in the Taito America ads post
