Beat Games, the Czech Republic-based indie developers behind smash hit rhythm game Beat Saber, are aiming to make a big splash in Asia with a newly revealed dedicated arcade machine.
The cabinet was created in partnership with SKonec Entertainment, a Seoul-based company that recently opened a VR multiplex called VR SQUARE.
The arcade cabinet itself features a monitor for spectating, an overhead cable management system, and appears to be powered by a HTC Vive headset, as evidenced by an image reported by Korean publication MK News. An alternative image obtained by VR Focus also features a Windows “Mixed Reality” VR headset in play.
A full list of participating arcades isn’t available at the time of this writing, but the company says more info regarding locations will be coming soon.
As for the West, Beat Games has already penned a deal with Springboard VR to bring Beat Saber to VR arcades across North America and Europe.
