Star Wars™: Battle Pod™ / Flat Screen Edition
BANDAI NAMCO is now releasing its hit game Star Wars™: Battle Pod™ / Standard Edition in a stylish flat screen version.
This edition features a 42-inch LCD monitor rendered with Unreal Engine™, ensuring cutting-edge graphics technology. It will also be possible to connect two units together to allow friends to play in Co-op mode.
The screen and seat is tilted 20° to give players the feeling of piloting for greater immersion!
In Co-op play mode, players need to work together to contribute to the success of the mission. Both players aim to shoot down the same enemy target, however they will compete for points in destroying enemies, with the most successful pilot recognised at the end of the game.
Adored by legions of fans around the world, the Star Wars franchise is faithfully reproduced in this game. Star Wars™: Battle Pod™ / Standard Edition transports players to a galaxy far, far away and straight into the heat of battle.
Players are able to take control of some of the most memorable vehicles in the Star Wars universe and pilot them to victory. Victory is achieved through adept and masterful control of Star Wars™: Battle Pod™ / Standard Edition flight stick controls and throttle.
Players must destroy enemy crafts to gain points, bring down multiple enemy crafts in quick succession to earn combo bonuses. Players’ scores and performance are determined after each stage.
James Anderson, Sales & Commercial Director stated “the dome version of the game is a centre piece for locations. This new version of the cabinet broadens the market for the product with a smaller footprint it can fit into more locations. The two player co-op mode has helped to increase the income in the test locations. Star Wars is one of the most recognizable brands in the world and there is a huge marketing campaign planned for the movie later this year that should enhance the brand awareness and push the income higher. The pre-sales on the new version have exceeded expectations and we are currently pushing to increase the production capacity.”
