Again in February 2018, we broke a narrative a few new conversion equipment system that was in growth for arcades by the title of Exa-Arcadia. Since that information dropped, we’ve been holding a really shut eye on the progress of the platform, which was aiming at revitalizing the arcade market by utilizing an previous, however confirmed thought with fashionable enhancements.
The Exa-Arcadia platform, simply referred to as the EXA board, just lately launched in Japan with the scrolling shooter Aka & Blue Sort-R because the launch title. That recreation has been performing “far above expectations” to cite Exa-Arcadia CEO Eric “ShouTime” Jung, however the information has left many outdoors of that nation a bit envious as to after they would get an opportunity to get their palms on the system.
Fortuitously, the wait is sort of over, as I get into with the most recent VLOG:
When the programs will ship is said to be “This fall 2019,” which actually may very well be any time. This most likely will depend on the general demand.
With the pre-orders, there’s a web page only for the EXA board (listed at $2,500), separate items of software program or you may get the board and a recreation as a bundle. The 4 recreation cartridges/bundles out there (NOTE: There may be at all times an opportunity that pricing can change with out discover)
Three of these are shmups, one is a 1v1 fighter, however both approach approach, it’s an excellent place to begin for places (and maybe the occasional collector) to start out including one thing a bit totally different to the combination.
We’ll share information of the pre-orders opening as soon as that drops. What do you concentrate on it after this newest replace?
