based on the theme it would be "Power Up", as in collecting a object that would enhance function.
Well, game titles have certainly included wordplay/puns/multiple-meanings in the past. It's possible that the title refers to all of (1) Powering on electronics in some sense, (2) Collecting items to get "more powerful" in some sense, and (3) Powering oneself "upward" via ramp/stairs/etc in some sense.

However, I find it much more likely that any sort of powering on in sense (1) I just gave would be via closing a switch already on the field similar to the Steamworks climbing touchpad, not any attempt to have robots put 12V across two field components somehow.

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

Kanye West announced that he was going to release an album in 2014. It took him 2 years, but he released TLOP in early 2016.

Kanye West announced that he was going to release an album in 2016. It still has yet to come out. That album's (alleged) name? Turbo Grafx 16.

Kanye will be releasing his album as an entire themed playlist for the 2018 game.

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

It seems to me that in these teasers they never show what you will actually be doing, but the end goal in which the game will lead up to. An excellent example being Steamworks, generating steam in order to "take flight" for an airship. Seems to me that we will be generating electricity in order to "power up" something. Likely some sort of game consul or some form of machine that can help people in some way.

As stated previously in this thread FIRST hasn't used tubes in a while, so perhaps some form of "wiring" in order to send an electrical signal. I doubt it will actually be themed around a video game, but these are just my theories.
