As we end September and approach IAAPA, arcade news tends to pick up a little, although the way things are shaking out economically, I’m not anticipating it being as strong as it was say 2018/19. Fortunately we end September with some new stuff, particularly from Raw Thrills so let’s see what they’ve got.

I’m still not sure when Series 2 for Minecraft Dungeons Arcade will launch but it should be before the end of the year.
New Cabinet Shot For Fast & Furious Arcade
We haven’t heard much about the new Fast & Furious Arcade racer that Raw Thrills unveiled at Bowl Expo ’22 earlier this year but now we do have a cabinet shot that looks close to final production (note that something could still change by production time).

MOSS is also running a finance deal:
Fast & Furious Arcade does not have an announced release date as far as I am aware at this moment but the assumption is that it will officially launch in November at IAAPA 2022.
