STAR WARS: BATTLE POD Heading to the UK

STAR WARS: BATTLE POD is coming to the UK; the arcade game that (almost) puts you in the seat of an X-Wing and lets you duke it out with the Empire.

Lucasfilm, Disney Interactive Japan, and Bandai Namco announced the new machine late last year. Video footage has come out this week revealing how truly amazing this thing is.

If you were lucky enough to grow up in the ‘80s, you may remember ATARI’s cockpit-style arcade machine with its amazing vector graphics. Fortunately for us all, it’s 2015 and the BATTLE POD features not only a larger command module but a huge 180 degree screen with a vibrating seat and controllers, surround sound and exhaust fans. Pretty much everything you need to immerse yourself in the STAR WARS experience.

The machine is so large and heavy that you’re unlikely to be able to fit it in your front room (though that won’t stop the team at the Moonbase Alpha from trying). We expect to see these new machines to appear around the UK’s entertainment parks and conventions sometime soon. For now though, enjoy this video:
