Space Invaders Frenzy is being shown for the first time at EAG 2017
Bandai Namco Amusement Europe is showing a number of proven products at EAG International 2017 including a new four-player DC Comics-themed “closed loop” ticket pusher with collectable cards on the playfield.
The success of Andamiro’s two-player SpongeBob Pineapple Arcade closed loop pusher led Bandai Namco to develop a four-player version but utilising its valuable DC Comics licence.
“We are really excited by the possibilities offered by the heroes and villains concept and the incredible DC Comics characters,” James Anderson, sales and commercial director for Bandai Namco, said.
“We know that the concept is proven, so increasing it to a four-player while maintaining a small footprint and anticipating that Warner Brothers have a number of film releases over the coming years with the characters on the game is a win-win situation.”
Bandai Namco will also show the Crazy Tower game by Adrenaline Amusements for the first time in Europe.
Players use 3D hologram technology to build towers. The higher the tower the more tickets to win on this four player centre piece.
PrimeTime Amusements describe the game as: "Crazy Tower is a brand new 1-4 player video redemption game that uses a unique semi-transparent pyramid shell to create a holographic like effect for the game. Not entirely unlike Sega's Holosseum arcade title from the 1990s. The game itself is like an isometric Stacker game, stack the building high for those tickets!"
Additionally, Namdai Namco will show PAC-MAN Smash Slimline – a smaller and more affordable version of the huge hit air hockey table PAC-MAN Smash - at its booth.
Space Invaders Frenzy, will be shown for the first time with a 108” screen and fantastic sound effects, incorporating a sit-down cabinet as a shooting ticket redemption game.
The Walking Dead, which is not for the faint-hearted, a new theatre style horror attraction, will be on show at EAG.
There are great expectations for the latest Raw Thrills release Cruis’n Blast, which will be shown for the first time in the UK.
The games have been on extensive income testing in the UK and the figures are impressive.
Bandai Namco also expects a great reaction to Apple Industries’ latest Emoji concept for its Scene Machine and Photo Studio Deluxe products, which takes a customer’s photo and turns it into a dedicated emoji.
Bandai Namco Amusement Europe can be found on stand #630 at EAG International 2017, which is being held in London until January 19.
