As the New York Comic-Con astounded and entertained audiences with a variety of panels, cosplay contests, merchandise, and more this past weekend, entertainment company Bandai Namco Games has announced a brand new arcade game based on the hit Star Wars franchise, titled “Star Wars: Battle Pod”! This first-person piloting game will take users through a number of iconic battles from the Star Wars franchise, and immerse users into the gameplay experience using an innovative spherical display, titled the Panoramic Optical Display. This display, which was originally used in a Gundam-themed arcade cabinet in 2006, creates a 3D view of the battlefield around the user in its hemisphere display, and will feature controls and sensors identical to the ones that appeared throughout the Star Wars franchise. “Star Wars: Battle Pod” will release in arcades across North America on January 2015, so keep an eye out for this cool new immersive experience!
