BANDAI NAMCO Amusement Europe Ltd. (BNAE) is extremely excited to debut a range of new products at the EAS Show that have proven themselves over summer testing.

EAS takes place at RAI Amsterdam in the Netherlands, from 25th to 27th September and BNAE will show a range of market-leading titles on stand #2-110.

The incredible Halo: Fireteam Raven was developed by Raw Thrills Inc, in collaboration with 343 Industries. Up to 4-players take part in the events of the original Halo storyline from an all new perspective – the ODST soldiers of Fireteam Raven. The aim of the game is to provide cover fire and mission assistance for Master Chief and defeat fan-favourite enemies like the Covenant and Flood. The full arsenal of weapons from across the Halo universe is available to use, while players can enjoy cutting edge 4K graphics on Play Mechanix’ NexaGen arcade game engine.

An unprecedented massive 130”, 4k resolution, panoramic display (dual 65”) sets the stage as Fireteam Raven transports players into the world of Halo where they can get lost in the stunning environmental cabinet, featuring force feedback ODST weapons and booming 5.1 surround sound. The legions of Halo faithful will be able directly link to their XBox Live accounts via Halo Waypoint and Halo: Fireteam Raven’s scanner interface to access exclusive STATS and rewards.

Also at EAS: Tomb Raider makes a return but this time on a giant 120” screen arcade amusement machine. Tomb Raider is an intense 4-Player shooting game from Adrenaline Amusements. Players can test their skills helping the famous Lara Croft from the hit selling Tomb Raider series (consumer software and movies) through three breath-taking chapters. Team up with other players and battle against increasingly difficult waves of enemies and push your limits to the very edge.

The hugely popular DC Super Heroes pusher developed in conjunction with Andamiro, will be shown at EAS in a new two-player version. The two-player features the heroes on one side and the villains on the other. In addition, the cabinet has been made even more attractive with the addition of extra LED lighting. Players try to press the “shoot” button to rotate the large wheel on the back wall of the cabinet and drop a token through a peg maze. If the player times it just right they can get the token through the “Bonus Drop” area of the maze which will stop the bonus spinner above it which will drop bonus tokens or cards onto the playfield in order for players to collect cards and win tickets! There are a number of collectible game cards around the playfield which players must knock down in order to collect.

World’s Largest PAC-MAN developed in association with Raw Thrills, continues to be one of BNAE’s most popular titles and will also be present at EAS. With its 2m high LCD screen and featuring original PAC-MAN and Galaga, it appeals to a wide number of markets and especially in theme parks and attractions as the screen can be used as an advertising hording when the game is not being played.

Built with flexible hardware and software, WePlayVR from AiSolve offers a safe yet thrilling virtual reality experience in a compact, plug-and-play, modular, 3m x 3m enclosed VR arena. BNAE will be showing the latest hardware and software in conjunction with AiSolve on the booth including the latest single player title and a preview of the new multiplayer title that will allow operators to potentially double their income from their existing units.

Finally, another highlight of the BNAE stand will be the Apple Industries Scene Machine 2 and Photo Studio Dx. Undeniably a market leader in photo booths, The Face Place Scene Machine embraces green screen technology to deliver an interactive photo booth experience like never before. Users are “dropped into a scene” of their choice, ranging from scary scenes with vampires and dinosaurs to underwater scenes where they can swim with all types of fish! It is possible to update the photos from the machine to include the logo of your location for marketing purposes. The Scene Machine also takes advantage of cutting edge Smile 2.0 software that allows customers to share their photos on Facebook, Twitter, or by e-mail directly from the booth which is excellent for social media marketing.

The Photo Studio Deluxe is the world’s most interactive photo booth attraction and also one of the largest! Its monumental size and vibrant light show composed of over 5,000 LED lights will undoubtedly be an eye-catching attraction for any FEC. With state-of-the-art retro-reflective technology, large groups of people can enjoy 20+ video-guided interactive fun scenes and benefit from all of the other features on the Scene Machines.

“The BNAE team and its strategic partners are looking forward to another successful EAS and its latest location of Amsterdam. We expect to see a good number of our international customers and anticipate that this year’s product line-up will more than meet with their approval,” says Commercial and Sales Director James Anderson.
