We’ve discussed Raw Thrills’/Play Mechanix’s newest title at some length and if you’ve been craving more while you wait for it to come out, here’s a new trailer for the game that covers all of its innovative features in one handy video.
There isn’t a ton of information about it yet but there is a new arcade-related movie coming to theaters later this year by Disney called Wreck-It Ralph. I guess that while they didn’t consider TRON Legacy to be big enough of a success(it still fared much better than John Carter) they saw enough excitement around arcades from their TL viral marketing efforts to do a movie like this. This video is from August of last year from a Disney Expo, where shows an arcade game mock-up that shows the game Wreck-It Ralph “stars” in. I haven’t seen a trailer for the movie quite yet but I’ve heard that footage has been exhibited a couple of times to select audiences. As you can tell, it’s a homage to Donkey Kong and Mario and I’ve heard that there is a scene where classic video game villains (or characters like them) will be in rehab. We’ll be staying tuned for more on this movie soon and hopefully some sort of tie-in can take place with the real arcade industry this time around.
