It’s time for the biggest event in the arcade industry to take place, which is the IAAPA Expo in Orlando, FL. Because there is a ton of information to sift through, I like to give you a preview of what to expect to find there, which is hopefully of use for those who can and cannot attend the event. Granted, there are always surprises to be found among the games, but those will be filled in through the week.
To make it a little easier to track developments, you can follow along on Arcade Heroes’ social media – particularly Twitter and the new Discord server (mainly created for my arcade business, but I threw in an Arcade Heroes channel there as well, because why not). Also a shout out to the Wilcox Arcade Discord server, which I should also be able to send updates to. I’ll be using Twitter/Discord as they are generally easier for me to update. Videos will also be made available via the Arcade Heroes YouTube & Bitchute channels as I find the time to edit videos together over the course of the next couple of weeks (in glorious 4K UHD, of course).
While I do want to do a video version of this post, I don’t think I have the time left to do that. We’ll see, but if I can manage it, it’ll only be my talking head.
Now onto the preview…this is all according to the best information I have at the time of the publication of this post. The main focus is on video games, but since we have videmption and pinball, those will get a mention too. Augmented/Mixed/Virtual Reality products will be at the bottom, unless one of the major manufacturers that we normally cover have something along those lines. Also a shout out to
