Battle Pods Epsisode VII Levels Are Live

As we were told by Arcade Heroes, Namco was developing a new level to be added to their Star Wars Battle Pod arcade game. This is great news for fans of the game. As a big fan of arcade games and Star Wars, I know I was pumped up about it. It’s always great to see more new content added to these types of games. Star Wars Battle Pod is one of my favorite arcade games and it’s a game that people of all ages can get into – literally. So you can imagine how excited I was to see this game was being updated.

This week, popular arcade/FEC chain Dave & Busters uploaded two new commercials to Youtube, giving us a brief glimpse of the new level of Star Wars Battle Pod arcade game. Check out this one and see if it doesn’t get you all pumped up to play this game:

If you have a Dave & Busters near you, this is a great opportunity to check it out for yourself in person. If not, check into it and see if your local arcade has a copy of this fun pod racing game. If you’ve never played it before, you’re sure to love it. If you have, you’ll still want to check out this awesome new content.

So what do you think? They definitely make it look exciting!

The flip side seems to be on the end of the cabinet owners. One comment on the internet said it’s not a free update and that with the dome cabinet itself costing over $30,000, it wasn’t worth it to then pay more than $5K for the update to add one new mission. So if your local Battle Pod doesn’t have the update yet, that just might be why.
