For months, ReRave.com has shown a countdown on their website although it did not suggest exactly what the countdown was for. The countdown ended today coinciding with the IAAPA 2013 trade show and with that, the next generation of ReRave has been announced – ReRave Plus.
As seen in the video below, the game has new songs, a new UI design and graphics, a ticket redemption option (I know at least one operator that did not want to get the game until that particular option was made available) and of course a completely new cabinet. It uses a sleek, eyecatching design with more LED lighting, curves on the cabinet as well as two screens, similar in that regard to the DJ Max Technika design. The touchscreen portion is a bit smaller than the original release (which was 46″ – no indication of the exact screen size for Plus) but it still looks to be able to handle two players
There will be an upgrade kit available for existing ReRave Arcade machines and the software will also be made available for Android devices. I presume that the arcade version will still have a few exclusive songs but we will have to wait and see for more details.
