The days of arcades are probably in the past, but they still hold a special place in the hearts of many. You'll soon be able to relive the grandeur of 90s gaming with Arcade Paradise later this year!
Arcade Paradise is a game that's all about making a little more out of a laundromat — namely by chucking the washing machines and replacing them with the pinnacle of 90s technology. The game was revealed as part of Wired Direct, a digital presentation from game publisher Wired Productions.
This is a little more than your average simulator, though. Yes, you're building an arcade, but you'll also get to play the games within your arcade! A news post from Wired Productions explains that there will be over 35 different arcade machines for both you and your virtual customers to enjoy.
That said, many of the same simulator conventions will apply. You'll have to raise money to add more machines to your shop and there's a balance to be struck here — how long are you going to hold onto those dingy washing machines before you decide to replace a row of Whirlpools with something more Kickass like a 6-man X-Men cabinet?
It also brings a bit of star power to the game. Voice actor Doug Cockle (who is perhaps best known for his role as Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher games) will be playing the protagonist's father.
When is the Arcade Paradise Release Date?
Unfortunately, an Arcade Paradise release date has not yet been announced by Nosebleed Interactive or Wired Productions; all we know for now is that it's expected to arrive sometime later in 2021.
For now, there's plenty to look forward to with this upcoming game! You can add Arcade Paradise to your wishlist on Steam and you can learn a little bit more about the game over at its official website.
