Battle Of Takodana Stage Coming To Star Wars Battle Pod Arcade Game

Last year, Bandai Namco said that additional stages could be coming to its Star Wars Battle Pod arcade game, and one might be coming by way of the recent movie The Force Awakens. According to Bandai Namco of Japan, players will be able to relive the battle of Takodana's aerial combat.

The translation is quite wonky, as Arcade Heroes points out in its original report, but the general details are fairly easy to uncover. The level is coming to arcades this summer, though 4Gamer is saying that it may apparently be already available for people who have purchased the home edition. We've reached out to Bandai Namco for further details, and we'll update the story if we get any additional information.

Our Take
The news was accompanied with details of a new flatscreen version of the arcade unit, which includes a 42-inch monitor. Perhaps it'll be a little easier on the wallet than the current $35,000 home version. Not everybody has Jabba money to throw around, after all.
