The crew over at Arcade1UP have been releasing replica arcade cabinets for retail for the past year-or-so with licenses from the makers of Pac-Man, Defender, and Street Fighter, to name a few. The arcade cabinets are less-expensive — starting at $199 — and smaller in scale compared to their original releases — allowing for play while sitting down, or standing with the optional 1 foot riser for an additional $99 — making it much easier for one to curate their own arcade cabinet collection. At this year’s Electronics Entertainment Expo, Arcade1UP announced that there’s more to come with the impending releases of some new arcade cabinets.
Arcade1Up will be selling more of their affordable arcade cabinet replicas, this time with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (featuring Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Turtles in Time) and Marvel Super Heroes (featuring Marvel Super Heroes, and X-Men Children of the Atom, and The Punisher. Arcade1Up also revealed more new machines, from head-to-head cocktail tables from Capcom and Namco hits, and the classic Atari Star Wars Trilogy arcade games, which include with X-Wing pilot controller.
Speaking of those cocktail arcade tables, those two cocktail cabinets coming “later this year” at $499 each are the “Capcom Head-to-Head Cocktail Table” — with 12 Capcom arcade classics, including Street Fighter II, Final Fight, and DarkStalkers — and the “Namco Head-to-Head Cocktail Table” — with 8 total games, including Pac-Man, Galaga and Dig Dug.
