The next couple of months are going to be a busy time for new arcade releases and with that I’ve been looking to get my hands on more media for these titles. Thanks to Bandai Namco, here are the first direct screenshots of Super Alpine Racer that I have seen; also check out the new flyer for the game which ties the game to the upcoming Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. I keep forgetting those are around the corner, much like had I forgot that this game has a wind effect from a fan placed beneath the monitor.
UPDATE: The prototype seen at IAAPA2013 had a big multi-color LED marquee, which they appear to have removed here. Must have something to do with the cost but it seemed like a neat feature.
Now for the screen caps. This is the first clear look I’ve personally had of the game. From the little video I’ve seen of this from IAAPA, it is clear that in motion it’s moving at 60FPS. You can also catch some similarities here and there to Raw Thrills’ Winter X Games Snocross. Super Alpine Racer is slated to launch next month.
