Arcade Saga is a love letter to classic arcade games.” He further added, “The VR ecosystem needs a persistent flow of exciting experiences and triple-A content that can help grow our audience. We’re excited to mark our launch with the debut of our first internally developed title ‘Arcade Saga’, a game that represents the kind of deeper and more challenging experience we believe VR enthusiasts are ready to embrace.”
The Arcade Saga is a compilation of three games which are Fracture, Smash and Bowshot. All these three minigames are reported to be quite exciting as there are both easy and difficult modes and new weapons can be gained as one move ahead with the different levels of the game.
