Checking Out GoldStorm Pirates On Test

A big thanks to Federico R. for providing this information. Keep in mind however that this post discusses/shows a game on location test. It may drastically change from what you see below by the time it hits production or it may not see production at all. 

Back in June, Bandai Namco Amusements quietly (well, until I posted about it) put up a new game on test, a sequel to their 2009 release DeadStorm Pirates at a Dave & Busters in IL. Surprisingly enough, the game is still on test this many months later, although the cabinet has changed a bit, as I mentioned in this video from just last week. Thanks to Federico however, we now have a much better look at the game than we’ve seen to date:

As seen above, instead of a more enclosed environmental cabinet, it’s using an open design, with the bench seat on a motion base sitting in front of a giant 85″ screen. Per Federico, the game is charging 14.9 credits to play(between $1-$2 a pop, depending upon what deals the user might have purchased). It still uses a pirate wheel as the original did, although from this it looks more detailed; It also has a motion base (which was one model option for the original game) and wind effects. Here’s a short look at one of the cutscenes are in action:

Here are a few more photos to look over:

I'm hopeful that this will be at IAAPA 2023 but unless they announce that in advance, I'm not sure if it will be there until I get onto the show floor. What are your thoughts on it from this look?
