Publisher Wired Productions and indie developer Nosebleed Interactive announced that Arcade Paradise VR, the VR port to the popular arcade management sim, is set to release on Quest later this month.

Update (April 8th, 2024): Wired Productions and Nosebleed Interactive revealed Arcade Paradise VR is coming to Quest on April 25th, with pre-orders discounted at 10% off the $20 price tag on Quest.

The studios also included a new trailer, linked below:

Original Article (March 4th, 2024): Based on the original game which launched on Steam in 2022, Arcade Paradise VR takes you back to the heady arcade-fueled days of 1993, this time letting you manage your dad’s failing laundromat and converting it into a successful arcade with your own two hands.

That means ordering new machines, setting high scores to drive profits, but also some of the grunt work to keep the business going. Like scrubbing virtual toilets, keeping things tidy, and doing laundry. It’s not all work though, as Arcade Paradise VR boasts 39 playable cabinets, each with their own gameplay, missions, and high scores to set.

There’s no precise launch date yet, however Wired Productions and Nosebleed Interactive says Arcade Paradise VR is landing on Quest in Spring 2024 (see update). In the meantime, you can pre-order now, which includes a 10% discount.

The studio also released a new trailer showing off more gameplay, but also a newly revealed mixed reality mode, which lets you freely place arcade cabinets wherever you want.

    Cool use of mixed reality!

    I enjoyed this in flatscreen working my way to success building up the arcade from a laundromat, so with new VR-specific games this looks like a more comprehensive version. And interacting with cabinets in mixed reality to fill a virtual arcade is a great use of the extra functionality of a Quest 3.

      I wish we had MAME/Pinball emulators for VR/XR.

    i played arcade legends with a friend and it is great! This Game looks very promising – only the Multiplayer is missing!

    ngl looks super fun, I want something like this but immersive, no floating hands, and some disconnect, but feel like Im really in an arcade from the 80’s

      Well there’s New Retro Arcade. It’s great, except it has aliasing on some objects in the environment. Also has online multiplayer.
