Star Wars Battle Pod Episode 7 Level Seen In Action

A little while ago, we reported that Namco was developing a new level to be added to their Star Wars Battle Pod arcade game. Not much was said about it, other than it would be based upon the Battle of Takodana from Star Wars The Force Awakens. Today, popular arcade/FEC chain Dave & Busters uploaded two new commercials to Youtube, finally giving us a very brief glimpse of this level in action:

I extracted the 1 second footage shown and turned it into a gif so here you go:


I have reached out to Bandai Namco Amusements for more info although it is a solemn holiday in the USA today so things are closed. We’ll update when we have more info – I’ve been waiting for this to do my official review of the Battle Pod, so expect that not long after the update is in hand.

    Namco has done it again! A supreme screw job for adding one extra mission. The pricing was just released, this update is over 5000.00! After dropping 30,000 on a dome cabinet, I was really hoping this would be a free update.

      Wow – huge disappointment. At 30k the game can’t outearn a $12k game like Jurassic Park. Did you find out if they offer anything else as a part of the update or is it simply just the level?

    It’s only the software to add a level. Hard to believe they would even attempt to charge this much. It’s enough to buy a whole new game. Thanks Namco.
