LAI Games’ Award-winning HYPERpitch Heads to Japan

HYPERpitchDallas, December 1, 2020 – LAI Games baseball themed redemption game HYPERpitch continues to be installed in premiere locations throughout the globe. Following its rollout to all US locations earlier this year, Round 1 Japan has also installed the game in all stores, with a total of 60 HYPERpitch units purchased through their distributor Bandai Namco Technica. Earlier this year, LAI Games announced that the AMOA Innovator Award winner would be installed in all Dave & Buster’s stores throughout North America.

Baseball has long been one of Japan’s most popular sports, so HYPERpitch was a natural fit for Round 1 Japan, which is known for having a unique mixture of games, bowling, karaoke, and other attractions. However, some modifications were made to the game to accommodate the Japanese audience. Pitching speed is measured in Kilometers/hour rather than Miles/hour, adjustments were made to the scoring matrix, the instructions were translated into Japanese and the games are amusement only, with no tickets being awarded.

About HYPERpitch

The universally appealing HYPERpitch is a baseball-style pitching game that is equally rewarding to play individually or with a friend. Each player gets three attempts to pitch the ball at the bullseye in a contest
of speed vs. accuracy. Dynamic lights chase the ball down the HYPER Tunnel while explosive sound effects create a sensation of power as the ball hits the target. This ticket redemption game creates a social competitive atmosphere that draws a crowd and gets players lining up for their turn.
