Bandai Namco celebrates truck tour success
For a limited time, a number of exclusive venues hosted the Bandai Namco Amusement Europe truck tour, playing to crowds of coastal arcades.
The BNAE Roadshow comprised of the star duo, John Crompton and Geoff Spencer who played a number of recent hits including; Nerf Arcade, Superbikes 3, Halo Fireteam 2 Player and Injustice Arcade from Raw Thrills. Also, Mario Kart Dx and Batman V Joker Slimline from Bandai Namco. Finally, Tomb Raider 65” Spinner Frenzy from Adrenaline and Spongebob Soccer Stars from Andamiro.
“The tour took 20 days and we visited numerous seaside towns taking in around 90 customers,” says John Crompton. “We covered Scotland, Wales and England and covered large stretches of the British coastline. Our Roadshow has become an annual event and takes us to some fantastic seaside towns and results in a number of sales every year.”
Geoff Spencer adds, “We had five new titles to share with customers at this year’s truck tour and the response was fantastic. Nerf Arcade – developed by Raw Thrills in conjunction with toy giant Hasbro – has certainly gained a following. It’s a high energy, fast-paced number that is really exciting to play.”
