We’ve known about this game for a while, but so far all that have been shown are static pictures. Today we get our first look at the game in action, with its immersive dome and flight-simulator set-up that lets you virtually fly into the battles of Hoth, Endor, Death Star I and Death Star II (NO PREQUELS).
It’s in select arcades now, and expanding, presumably to places like Dave and Buster’s where people who play it will remember the original movies, versus a new generation of kids who, months from now, will be saying: “Where’s Finn? Where’s Kylo Ren? Why no shiny flashy things right into your eyes? This isn’t Star Wars.” (Resign yourself, people. That will happen.)
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
