Final 12 months, UNIS supplied us one of many largest surprises of the online game with a return to soccer arcade / soccer. Fantasy Soccer was first launched on the IAAPA 2018 and was launched for arcades to grab final March. The sport is performed rapidly like Virtua Soccer or Tremendous Sidekicks and isn’t strategic like WCCF. The sport cupboard was additionally notable for resembling a modernized model of the Namco World Kicks; Gamers management their participant's actions with an outsized gamepad and kick by actually hitting the balloon mounted on the base. It additionally helps four gamers per cupboard (eight by connecting two folks collectively). This makes it a giant recreation that drives a giant prize for FEC. Right here is the sport of the final time I noticed it:
Whereas trendy recreation manufacturing is turning into an increasing number of fashionable with Tremendous Deluxe and Deluxe cupboards / prizes, we nonetheless have occasional elements that work for smaller communities. Enter the brand new 2-player mannequin of Fantasy Soccer.
As this flyer posted on Instagram reveals, the sport software program is equivalent, they’ve simply adjusted the case. He all the time makes use of kickable balls on the backside; the monitor shouldn’t be a lot smaller (4p = 55 "/ 2p = 49" though the 4p has a second monitor); and the cupboard 2p is extra colourful. Whereas the 4p model may be linked to a different, the 2p mannequin cannot be linked to a 4p model; it’s unclear whether or not or not we might join two 2p cabs, though I think about that it might make extra sense to purchase a single 4p cab on this case.
I’ve not heard what the worth of this new mannequin can be, however between it and its extra compact measurement, there could also be various streets that will discover it enticing; particularly the bars. Bars are all the time profitable with sports activities video games (hey Golden Tee & Huge Buck), though I have no idea what number of American bars would go to soccer in comparison with American soccer / baseball / basketball / hockey.
The two-player model will debut on the IAAPA 2019 in Orlando, Florida. We are going to then have extra details about it!
