Happy 2017 everyone! For our first post of the year, let’s take a look at an upcoming release, The Walking Dead Arcade game by Play Mechanix and Raw Thrills. We knew that it would be launching sometime in January but today we know when the game will begin to ‘officially’ ship out to arcades around the world, the week of January 23rd. To add onto that, we have some new media to share with you from the game.
The Walking Dead (Near Final) Arcade Cabinet
We saw this in person at IAAPA 2016 but it is always nice to have a high resolution cabinet image to look at. This is NOT final…there may still be some changes between now and the 23rd but I doubt that they would make any drastic changes from what we see here.

Also thanks to Play Mechanix we have some new screenshots of the game to check out. These were captured at the game’s native resolution of 1920x1080p (click to enlarge).
This one is labelled “Mini-boss”. In the IAAPA build, I came across them a few times and they can take a beating

You might be able to find this game a little sooner than Jan 23rd. depending on the location as there are test or trade show units that have trickled out into the wild.
For those who have had a chance to play the game already, what do you think about it?
