It seemed fitting that since I posted the Music Video for Dig Dug a couple of days ago that we focus on the Dig Dug Arcade Flyer.
Not everyone may know that our beloved Dig Dug is the father of Susumu Hori, the main character in the video game series Mr. Driller. He is also the ex-husband of Toby “Kissy” Masuyo, the heroine of the game Baraduke or Alien Sector as we know it in the States. Thanks to that Wiki entry we are now aware that Dig Dug and and Toby had two other children before their divorce, Ataru Hori and Taiyo Toby. Now how many people thought Dig Dug was just a simple little arcade title?
Hope you enjoyed this wonderful piece of arcade history. This Dig Dug Arcade Flyer and others like it were used to entice arcade owners to purchase these games. I would say that this one was very effective since almost every arcade I ever visited in the 1980s had a Dig Dug machine.
