There’s a disturbance in the force. The menace of the coronavirus wasn’t a phantom, but a threat to the very existence of our galaxy. Under this perilous existence, an unlikely alliance formed to create a new Star Wars VR Arcade game. And it’s bringing new hope to the entertainment centers on the remote planet Earth.
A Star Wars arcade game is about as rare as a Mandalorian selfie. There have been five Star Wars feature films released since the last one. The most recent was Star Wars: Battle Pod, released in 2014 by Bandai Namco. Before that, you have to go back a long time ago to Sega’s Star Wars trilogy games in the 90s. And the original dates back to Atari in the early ‘80s. But there’s never been a Star Wars VR Arcade game until now.
On Thursday, October 1, at 10 AM PT, 1 PM ET, and 6 PM GMT I will be moderating a panel of location-based entertainment luminaries as they announce the latest entrant into the shortlist of amazing Star Wars arcade games.
- Kevin Bachus, SVP Games and Strategy from Dave & Buster’s
- Sean Griffin, CEO of Nomadic
- Ben Davenport, CEO of VRsenal
- Special guests
The panel will kick off with the world premiere of the arcade game video trailer. Afterward, there will be a virtual networking event and a distributor showcase.
This event is private and invite-only. If you would like an invitation, just reply to this email, or fill out the invite form here.
It’s going to be epic. I hope you make it.
