The home arcade cabinet makers aren’t slowing down and have revealed new machines at E3 2019 that are sure to have fans drooling.
If I haven’t been clear on the matter, I LOVE Arcade1Up. I had the chance to check out their Rampage cabinet that launched around Christmas time and came away thoroughly impressed. Not only does it look great and authentic (despite the smaller size), but the games PLAY just as you expect.
Earlier this year they revealed (and have now released) a handful of new cabinets, including Mortal Kombat, but they aren’t stopping there. In fact, at E3 this year, they may have revealed the arcade cabinets fans have been wanting most: Ninja Turtles and Marvel.
Some of the most beloved Arcades around, and ones people often think of most, are the old school Ninja Turtles games and the variety of Marvel superhero beat ’em ups. They’re classics for a reason, and now Arcade1Up is giving you the chance to bring them into your homes for a fraction of the cost.
Like their other cabinets, you’re not just getting a single game in the unit. For their Ninja Turtles machine, you’re getting both the classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Arcade Game (1989), AND Turtles in Time (1991). For just $350, and the first time they’ve crafted a 4-player machine, that’s one hell of a deal.
The Marvel Super Heroes machine will provide thee games: Marvel Super Heroes, X-Men Children of the Atom, and The Punisher. So if you’re a big Marvel fan, there’s very little reason to skip out on this.
“With over 30 years of experience in consumer products, I have never seen such an involved or passionate fan community,” said Scott Bachrach, CEO, Tastemakers. “We have watched tens of thousands of fans across our social media platforms request some of these new titles and we are really excited to be turning their hopes for our brand into a reality.”
Both of these new arcades will be available later this year.
