A brand new slate of arcade cabinets was revealed by Arcade1Up. Adding to its existing roster of machines are four new arcade cabinets: Ms. Pac-Man, X-men vs. Street Fighter, Marvel vs. Capcom, and Big Buck Hunter. A physical pinball machine for Marvel Pinball is also imminent. All five machines will be released by the end of this year.
Arcade1Up has released a multitude of arcade cabinets in recent years, and its full selection is available to view online. These are high-quality recreations of some of gaming’s biggest arcade experiences, costing around $400 a pop. They are built to scale though, so you’re getting the proper arcade experience in your home — or wherever you place these cabinets!
Ms. Pac-Man is a pretty big deal, being one of the most popular arcade games ever. There’s been a bit of legal back and forth about the title recently too, so it’s nice to see some of that apparently resolved here. Big Buck Hunter will meanwhile take you right back to a pre-COVID-19 era, when scoping in on stray deer down at your local cinema was everyone’s favorite pastime.
But let there be no doubt: X-men vs. Street Fighter and Marvel vs. Capcom are a massive deal to fighting game enthusiasts.
