The new products just keep rolling out as we get more information from what was at the AAMA Gala this week. Here is a look at two new products from Namco America. These are prototype cabinets at the moment so changes could be made before their final release, which I imagine will be happening by the end of this year.
First is one we already caught a glimpse of a short time back, a new deluxe upright cabinet for Pac-Man Battle Royale (click to zoom):
And then something we didn’t know about yet, a new upright cabinet for Deadstorm Pirates. This is certainly a great way to get the game out in to more locations that didn’t have the space or money to nab the deluxe sitdown version, although it probably would have been better to have this a while back when DSP first came out. Better late than never though. I imagine that one change that will be made to this cabinet is the line under the title is “closed style booth” gun game since that won’t apply here. But otherwise the guns and wheel look the same and that is most likely a 32″ LCD screen.
As far as we know, the software is the same on both of these titles; pricing isn’t know yet and probably won’t be until the games are made available for release.
