By |2020-07-10T11:46:33+01:00July 9th, 2020|Arcade Game News|Comments Off on Special Edition Units Of Strania EX Shipping Soon

It has been a while – a little over two years – since Exa-Arcadia opened up pre-orders for a special, limited-edition run of their EXA board platform. The units would sport a Strania EX skin, come with the game cartridge and some other goodies. I did not catch when those pre-orders closed, but for those [...]

By |2020-07-08T17:28:00+01:00July 8th, 2020|Arcade Game News|Comments Off on Hot Wheels: King of the Road Adds Cameras

Way back in April (seems like centuries ago, given how this year has panned out), Adrenaline Amusements posted a short tweet promising new features coming to their Hot Wheels: King of the Road arcade game. Since that was still around the beginning of the shutdowns that affected millions of people and kept most of our [...]

By |2020-07-06T11:10:03+01:00July 5th, 2020|Arcade Game News|Comments Off on Newsbytes: New Bomberman; VR Troubles; Talking Survival and More

Welcome to the latest edition of Newsbytes, a weekend post that curates some quick news from the wonderful world of arcade and pinball gaming. I meant to have this published yesterday, but all of the 4th of July festivities had me sidetracked. Not much to update on my arcade trivia game this week, running into [...]

Sega Amusements Int’l Fully Re-Opens

By |2020-07-02T10:32:19+01:00July 1st, 2020|Arcade Game News|Comments Off on Sega Amusements Int’l Fully Re-Opens

The news cycle for the past few months has been a cycle of closures, indefinite closures, re-openings, & re-closures. It’s been a little hard to track it all, since every industry has been affected in one way or another. For the arcade side, I’ve detailed plenty of that, although we still have plenty of extremes, [...]

By |2020-06-30T10:14:00+01:00June 29th, 2020|Arcade Game News|Comments Off on New Screenshots Released For Vritra Hexa

Just a brief post to start out the week, thanks to some screenshots that were released today for the horizontal scrolling shooter, Vritra Hexa. For quick background, Vritra is an obscure shoot ’em up that was first released to mobile platforms in 2017, with a “Complete Edition” port to PCs in 2018. It is kind [...]

Hello and welcome to this summer edition of Newsbytes. Arcade news itself has been pretty slow this week, apart from talking about Chuck E. Cheeses, but we’ve got enough “bytes” to hopefully tide you over for now. I almost missed this, but happy 48th anniversary to Atari Corp as of today. I always think it’s [...]

Will Chuck E. Cheeses Survive?

By |2020-06-25T19:33:00+01:00June 25th, 2020|Arcade Game News|Comments Off on Will Chuck E. Cheeses Survive?

I’m not leading this story with the headline “Chuck E. Cheeses files for bankruptcy,” as it seems to be taken incorrectly by some. Unfortunately, I’ve found that many “readers” on both Facebook and Twitter refuse to actually click on the stories and read them. This modern trend of just reading headlines and forming deep opinions [...]

Welcome to Newsbytes, a curation of arcade content from around the web that is generally run on the weekends. While a lot of general news in 2020 has been terrible, to say the least, there can be good things out there if you look for them. Hopefully this compilation helps lead you into a decent [...]

New trailer for Hot Wheels Pinball

By |2020-06-17T18:15:00+01:00June 17th, 2020|Arcade Game News|Comments Off on New trailer for Hot Wheels Pinball

First shown at Amusement Expo 2020, Hot Wheels follows Oktoberfest and Houndini as the third product for American Pinball. Due to the pandemic and subsequent shutdowns that took place as soon as that Expo had finished, the game (as did many others) went on hiatus. With many companies restarting development and production, Hot Wheels is [...]

Happy Space Invaders Day!

By |2020-06-17T08:15:15+01:00June 16th, 2020|Arcade Game News|Comments Off on Happy Space Invaders Day!

It’s time to celebrate another game anniversary, as Taito appears to have taken a page from all of the celebrations surrounding Pac-Man’s 40th, and come up with their own ways to celebrate the game that made the company a force to be reckoned with. Space Invaders did celebrate 40 years back in 2018, but this year [...]
