EDISON, NEW JERSEY – July 21, 2022Arcadegeddon will receive a worldwide physical launch next month in stores. From IllFonic, this ever-evolving cooperative multiplayer shooter allows you and up to three additional players to explore unique biomes in exciting PVE experiences and go head-to-head with your teammates mid-tile with quick PVP matches if you desire. Battling against the mega corporation, Fun Fun Co., players will explore multiple biomes, find hidden chests, and defeat numerous enemy types and bosses all to keep Gilly’s Arcade from going under.
 
Arcadegeddon introduces players to Gilly, owner of one of the last remaining arcades in Super City who is trying to save his business from a faceless mega corporation. In a last-ditch effort, he takes each of the top arcade games and combines them to make a super game. Unfortunately, Fun Fun Co. catches wind of this and injects the game with a virus. Players must fight against the virus and save the last hometown arcade.
 
The physical edition will include bonus content:

  • Advance Access to rare Cosmetics
