Some cool news for arcade folks as the SUPERHOT Team as they will be bringing the experience to VR Arcades and LBE with SUPERHOT VR: Arcade Edition. The team spent months of development creating a game that could be loaded and played into what they call "public commercial locations", allowing people to choose the level they want and move into any difficulty they choose right out the gate in 11 different languages. The company hasn't put an official release date on it yet, but all accounts of it seem to point it coming out this year. You can read more about it here, but we also have the main features and a quote from the company below, plus the trailer showing it off!
"It was clear there was a large appetite for a version of SUPERHOT VR that played amazingly well for both players and operators in a public setting" said Alastair Hebson, Head of Special Projects, "it was an obvious decision for us to greenlight a project and hire a team solely focused on making it happen. It's exciting for us to be in the LBE space and part of this growing industry sector.
