ArcadeXR has announced that it has secured the license to bring Skee-Ball to Arcade Legend. This is the first time the official version of the iconic game will appear in VR. Skee-Ball is now available as DLC for Arcade Legend on Meta Quest.
Originally invented and patented in 1908, Skee-Ball has been reinvigorated over the years and sold to arcades in three distinct models. Skee-Ball Classic, with its nostalgic red and yellow wood panel design. Skee-Ball Glow, featuring retro vibes, colorful lights and attention-getting ornamental design. And Skee-Ball Modern, a neon inspired aesthetic that reflects the sleek simplicity of the Classic model. All three models will be available for players to add to their arcades as multiples, complete with overhead marquee when cabinets are positioned together.
“We are thrilled to welcome Skee-Ball, a timeless brand that has defined the very essence of arcade gaming, to Arcade Legend. With a rich history spanning over a century, Skee-Ball stands as a global icon, captivating players of all ages and cementing its status as one of the most significant arcade games of all time” said Shannon Perell, CEO of ArcadeXR. “The opportunity to bring this iconic game to the virtual world through Arcade Legend is a tremendous honor for us, and we are delighted to share the excitement of Skee-Ball with both long-time fans and newcomers alike.”
Skee-Ball DLC for Arcade Legend
The complete set of three models isn’t all the DLC has to offer. It also includes a one-of-a-kind attraction called Skee-Ball Extreme. This is a super-size version of the game. It can be activated directly on top of a full-length lane in the bowling alley. Players will even use all their existing bowling balls to play Skee-Ball Extreme.
