Bandai Namco Confirmed Episode VII for Star Wars Battle Pod Arcade Machine
Bandai Namco Entertainment have confirmed this past week that additional content will be available for their Star Wars Battle Pod arcade machines following the success of Episode VII and is due to launch in May!
There has been speculation circling online for some time now that the Japanese company would create additional content. The confirmation comes along with a screenshot from the new movie indicating where the Episode VII sequence will take place: [SPOILER] The Battlle of Takodana!
This will switch up the current game play in the Battle Pod version at the moment, as it will focus on the aerial combat of the battle.

According to the sketchy google translation on the 4Gamer.net report, the Episode VII content will launch for the public in May, but appears to already be available in the Standard and Premium edition home versions, though this still needs to be confirmed.
I would especially be looking forward to this stage in the Flat Screen edition, for the co-op functionality of course, and it will be interesting to see how the stage turns out for players.
