We finally have confirmation on one of Raw Thrills’ newest games – the word on the street is that this is just one of several they have in the pipe but we don’t know what they are just yet. Until then here is a new racer that includes a cart-style theme and uses licensed Nicktoons characters including Invader Zim, Spongebob Squarepants, Avatar, Jimmy Neutron, Timmy Turner and Danny Phantom. I actually would have had news on this one back at ASI but I overlooked the flyer that was there but today when I was visiting my distributor they got some in today.
As per the flyer in addition to the characters the game can link up to 6 games and 7 tracks. This game is also from the Chicago Gaming Company which has released a Nicktoons-based racer previously although I have not seen it in an arcade yet. NickToons Knighttro, while it is yet another racing game to throw it’s hat into the ring of racers on the market may find itself quite popular – in addition to some nice looking graphics (it’s hard to say really with the small pics on the flyer, we’ll have to wait to see it in action) it is also boasting quite a price tag – while a final tag is not known yet I’ve been told that it will probably be somewhere in the $4000 range, maybe more, maybe less. Either way Raw Thrills’ is getting serious about their pricing which I am happy to see, lower prices will mean that arcades can afford to buy more units to provide a better experience to their players.
