Anything and everything Star Wars is, understandably, all the rage at the moment, but a new Star Wars product is about to hit the market that is…limited in its reach. Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc. is poised to release a home version of the arcade game Star Wars: Battle Pod, which is an aerial battle game featuring a fully immersive Dome Screen where players pilot famous star fighters from the films.
If that’s a home version of the arcade game isn’t enough, Bandai Namco Entertainment is also offering a “Premium Edition” of the game, which will be made to order and equipped with leather seats, with two different designs of your choosing: Rebel Alliance or Darth Vader.
So how much will these games cost you? The home version of Star Wars: Battle Pod has an MSRP of $35,000, while the Premium Edition will run a cool $100,000. It’s a great investment if by investment you mean “pissing away your money”. What else are you gonna do with $35,000? Donate to cancer research? Fund a shelter? No, that money should be spent buying video games.
Check out a video of the gameplay below. The Battle Pods will be available to order beginning June 18th. For more info visit the official website.
