Star Wars: Battle Pod Space Flight Simulator Video & Info. Play Across Yavin, Hoth, Endor & Death Star.

Looks like the new Arcade game we talked about on last weeks The Realm Recap #33 is Star Wars: Battle Pod.

"The Battle Pod is a single seat space flight sim that uses a curved screen to drop players into the game, and the movies. Players sit inside the pod, using a flight stick and throttle to fly and fight their way through the Star Wars franchise.

The domed screen works in conjunction with a seat that reacts to explosions, special fans that blow air, vibrating controllers and 5.1 sound. The vibration, air gusts and sound turn the game into an incredible Star Wars "toy," they said.

Settings in the Unreal Engine 3-powered game will include Yavin, Hoth, Endor, the Death Star 2 and players will be able to pilot a snow speeder, X-Wing, speeder bike and the Millennium Falcon. The game will also feature a final "Vader's Revenger" stage which has the Sith lord trying to take out the Death Star in an Advanced TIE Fighter.

The game will start to hit arcades this coming January, but if you're in New York you'll be able to check the game out at the Midtown Dave & Busters. The machines will be there starting tonight until Nov. 2."

Pretty slick looking stuff posted on the Wookiee Gunner. H/T Polygon for article and Yakface for heads up on video.
