SUPERHOT VR: Arcade Edition Explained

Hey there!

Now you might be wondering what is this SUPERHOT VR: Arcade Edition all about?

How is it any different from good ol’ SUPERHOT VR and who is this sexy bearded ninja in the video?

Let’s try giving you some answers then.

Blurring the lines between cautious strategy and unbridled mayhem, combined with the latest points-earning and quality of life features, SUPERHOT VR: Arcade Edition is the critically acclaimed VR experience revamped and remixed for VR Arcade and LBE use.

Having gained a massive following with LBE and VR Arcade operators, the studio began receiving a flood of feedback from those deploying SUPERHOT VR in the wild. Combined with their own research, the team began crafting the remix that is SUPERHOT VR: Arcade Edition – a sleek, streamlined and VR Arcade friendly update that focuses on pure gameplay while helping make arcade operators lives way easier.

FEATURES

The Arcade Edition incorporates everything great from the fan favorite, award-winning SUPERHOT VR, with shiny new features both players and operators will love:

  • Points mean prizes – a superb, all new scoring feature that increases fun, competition and replayability.
  • Leaderboards – local leaderboards with a great new Hall of Fame experience for players. Operators can easily manage leaderboards to better support special events and parties.
  • Floppy disks be gone! – game flow has been completely overhauled to ensure players don’t get stuck or confused while playing.
  • Level selection – players can now easily select different levels to help make life more fun for those returning for their second, third or fiftieth play!
  • Flexibility – the new Administrator Panel provides convenient and complete control over how exactly SUPERHOT VR: Arcade Edition is deployed. Easily select default modes, options and settings to ensure the game suits your situation perfectly.
  • Operator friendly – if a player encounters difficulties, operators can easily skip the current level, quickly reload or skip to the end of the game.
  • Player friendly – improved tutorial elements help ensure players understand how to play faster and with less operator involvement.
  • Spectator friendly – a custom second screen display gives those watching the action a better and more engaging experience.
  • Control options – select between the Classic and Updated Vive control schemes.
  • Attract Mode – an optional setting to trigger an entertaining video that’ll help draw attention to a VR station at which nobody has interacted with the game in a while.
  • Language support – support for 11 languages: English, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Polish and Russian.
  • Media Assets – gain access to easily customizable, high-quality posters, art, social media assets and associated material to help promote your arcade.

Arcade Update

SUPERHOT VR: Arcade Edition takes all the goodness of the original SUPERHOT VR gameplay, sprinkling it with new features and game modes while streamlining everything that might interrupt the gameplay itself. Empowering both the player and the operator to let them achieve the greatest VR arcade experience the game could offer was our pivotal goal in this project. When all is said and done, what we really want is to let you have unspoiled, uninterrupted fun that you will remember as a true, immersive, frantic experience. We cannot wait to see the high scores of people all over the world and check if we ourselves can beat them! Give us a challenge! Have fun!
