There will be a plethora of new and tested/proven products on the BANDAI NAMCO Amusement Europe stand at EAG (#620), including a new four-player DC Comics themed, “closed loop” ticket pusher, featuring collectable cards on the playfield.
The success of Andamiro’s two player SpongeBob Pineapple Arcade closed loop pusher led BNAE to develop a four-player utilizing the valuable DC Comics licence. “We are really excited by the possibilities offered by the heroes and villains concept and the incredible DC Comics characters,” says James Anderson, Sales and Commercial Director. “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.”
BNAE will also show the Adrenaline, Crazy Tower game 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. In addition there will be PAC-MAN Smash Slimline – a smaller and more affordable version of the huge hit air hockey table PAC-MAN Smash. Space Invaders Frenzy, will be shown for the first time with a 108inch screen and fabulous sound effects, incorporating a sit-down cabinet as a shooting ticket redemption game.
The Walking Dead, which is not for the faint-hearted is a new theatre style horror attraction. 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. Finally, BNAE 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.
