Measuring under four feet tall, each arcade machine is pre-loaded with different arcade classics in full-color and high resolution. Games like Rampage, Centipede, Asteroids, Super Street Fighter, and more are featured on the 3/4-scale replicas with real arcade controls such as rollerballs and joysticks, and a 17-inch display.
We’ve had lots of questions about which games are on which Arcade 1Up machines. These 5 machines are going to be available at major retailers on Sept. 25 (pre-order on July 25). There are multiple games on each machine. ⬅️⬅️⬅️⬅️Scroll. Two more secret 2018 machines will be announced in October. We are keeping a list of all requests for 2019 and talking to new partners daily, so anything is possible for next year! See link in bio for full details and first comment for a list of what is on each machine. ???????????????? . . . #arcadegames #arcade1up #streetfighter #asteroids #finalfight #streetfighter #rampage #retrogames #retrogaming #retrogamer #gamer #videogames #oldschool #retro
With five cabinets slated to release on September 25, three to four classic games will be installed in each. Atari‘s Centipede, Millipede, Missile Command, and Crystal Castles is one set, while a cabinet from Midway games features Rampage, Defender, Joust, and Gauntlet. The full list of titles can be found here.
Additionally, accessories for the cabinets are offered, which include a stool and rise, allowing gamers to grind out the games without worrying about fatigue.
Wanted to give you all a look at what the riser does. Our machines are 3/4 scale. An original classic arcade machine is 5’8″ tall, 34″ deep, 25″ wide and weighs 300 pounds — too large for the average home. Ours are 3’10” tall (without the riser); 5’4″ tall (with the riser), 23″ deep, 19″ wide and weigh only 63 pounds — much better suited for a modern home arcade. The controls still fall at the exact same height they did on the classic arcade machines. Arcade1Up machines are portable, flexible (play seated or standing), and affordable! Best of all — no quarters are required. Risers will be available September 25.
