For any arcade fans, watching E3 (the annual gathering of the home game biz) is usually a drag in terms of new content. However, during a debut session, Nintendo of America President & COO Reggie Fils-Aimé name-dropped a new contender in the arcade world that has gotten some big buzz.
Fils-Aimé announced that the makers of Killer Queen, the radical, 10-player arcade game pioneered by Josh DeBonis and Nik Mikros, was about to have a Nintendo Switch version. The new version, Killer Queen Black, was rebuilt from the ground up for console and online play, but the gameplay at its heart is the same. Players can tap into the Killer Queen World and fight it out against others around the world. The game is also coming to Steam which gives it a massive market of computer gamers worldwide.
Opening the game to a wider, home market will likely prove more successful, as the expense and sheer size of a 10-player cabinet made the arcade version a hot commodity, but hardly everyone’s cup of tea. Check out the video above for more information.
