An Arcade Paradise release date has just been revealed for August 11, 2022, and will come out on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One. The indie sim will come with over 35 games and will include voice overs from Doug Cockle, who portrayed Geralt in The Witcher series. Players will learn how to manage profits, collect coins to reinvest, and give players a chance to create and expand their own arcade empire.
Originally announced in 2021, Arcade Paradise was eventually moved to 2022 where it will be releasing in a little over a month. Early experiences with the game have been good, with our PAX East roundup saying that it's shaping up to be a "fun little trip down memory lane".
“We are thrilled to continue working alongside Nosebleed Interactive on a title which is really the ultimate nostalgia-inducing game for any kid who grew up in the early 90’s.” Said Leo Zullo, Managing Director, Wired Productions. “It is so satisfying to have been involved in the initial concept of Arcade Paradise with the team, who have taken the grain of an idea and smashed it out of the park!”
There's also a 'Making Of' documentary that will include a "unique perspective" on how the game has been developed while leading up to the Arcade Paradise release date. Episode One "In The Back Room" and Episode Two “Building An Arcade” are now live on YouTube.
“I’m extremely proud of our team, who have worked incredibly hard to help make Arcade Paradise the dream game for old school arcade and indie game fans alike.” Said Andreas Firnigl, CEO and Founder of Nosebleed Interactive. “This is the biggest game we have ever created as a studio so we simply cannot wait to share Arcade Paradise with the world.”
Players will be able to pre-order the physical version that includes a folded double-sized poster, graffiti sticker set, reversible inlay sleeve, and digital EP download. It will cost £19.99 / $24.99 / €24.99 for the PlayStation version and £24.99 / $29.99 / €29.99 for the Nintendo Switch version.
