Why Was Arcooda Born?
Arcooda is part of the Highway Group, an Australian company that has its DNA based in the amusement and arcade industry. But, so many problems the amusement industry was experiencing, we had a fresh vision on what gaming should be, and how to solve these problems for gamers, operators and distributors. It’s the reason why Arcooda was born.
For industry people, you will understand the pain of being an amusement centre or street operator. For years, we feel the industry has kept going in the wrong direction, and opportunities completely missed. More about our coinop dreams later.
Highway introduced Street Fighter 4 arcade and Tekken 6 into the European market. This was the first time these games were shown into Europe and our trade show products went immediately into Funland Trocadero Centre in the UK.
The next release of Street Fighter 5 and Tekken 7 were exclusively online, subscription/paid model products.
However, many top performing arcade products are never seen outside of Japan….
