Asphalt 9: In the driver’s seat of this year’s most thrilling attraction.
Driving games, an arcade staple since forever.
Racing games have always been a staple of every arcade, even in venues where the real-estate for arcade games is minimal and game offerings seem to be an afterthought. The driving category was turned on its head in 2021, with the introduction of Asphalt 9 Legends Arcade. Based on the globally popular mobile app of the same name which currently boasts over 1 billion downloads, Asphalt 9 offers players excitement they can’t get from any other driving game on the market.
Immersing players in the action, down to the last detail.
Asphalt 9 lets guests race 20 of the world’s most exclusive cars from the world’s most renowned car manufacturers, including Porsche, Lamborghini, W Motors, McLaren and many more. The custom, air cylinder-powered motion base realistically simulates the on-screen action and makes guests feel as though they are taking their dream car on a thrill ride through an exotic city. Stunning, Full HD Graphics on a 43” monitor, wind jets, a steering wheel force-feedback system and vibrating speakers add to the realism.
More features than any other driving game:
- Custom air-injected motion platform
- Wind jets
- Force feedback on controls
- Vibrating speakers
- Global leaderboards
- Multiple real-world locations
Players can access additional controls as they progress, for extreme competitive action during gameplay. A variety of maneuvers are possible, each with corresponding seat movement, including nitro speed burst, performing stunts and 360–degree spins to knock other cars out of the way, and drifting through turns with the drift pedal.
One of the most unique and valuable features, yet also simple, is the Facebook login that allows players to earn rewards and build upon their past success. They log in via a QR code on the screen, using their existing Facebook app (over 176.8 Million FB mobile app users). Every race they perform while logged in gives them an opportunity to earn rewards. These rewards can unlock game features like better car performance, car upgrades, experience points and battle stars that show off player’s racing ability to competitors. Guests can also progress through League Stages and compete on global leader boards. A deeper level of engagement with the game is possible thanks to the Facebook login feature.
The Asphalt 9 5D DX model immerses guests in the action on the level of a simulator, and as such commands a higher price per play. The game lends itself to in-store eSports tournaments, a customer trend which is growing across the landscape of location-based entertainment, and a great way to drive repeat traffic.
Successful game rooms know they must revitalize their line-up on a regular basis. The same games won’t keep guests engaged indefinitely. Make sure to re-invest in your arcade to keep guests coming back and new visitors flowing in. Adding Asphalt 9 Legends Arcade instantly injects life into your driving offering.
