Arcade 1-Up has been making waves in the video game world for a little over a year now. They found a way, by slightly scaling down the cabinets, to bring an authentic video game arcade experience into the home at a reasonable price. Lately, their releases have been getting more specialized and their newest one is going to excite a lot of old-school Star Wars fans.
The company has just announced that they’ll be releasing a special Star Wars arcade cabinet that features all of the original 1980s Star Wars Arcade Games. The cabinet will even have the special Tie-Fighter controller. The whole thing will set you back $500 and will be released exclusively through GameStop on 10/15/19
The Star WarsTM Home Arcade Game from Arcade1Up features the artwork from the original arcade machine on the cabinet and the included riser. Standing at just over 5’ tall (slightly below 4’ without the riser), the arcade machine comes with a light-up marquee, full-color 17” display and dual speakers. These features, combined with the real-feel flight yoke and control buttons allow for endless hours of gaming. The Star WarsTM Home Arcade Game features the original arcade versions of the classic games based on Star Wars: A New Hope, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi!
“The Star WarsTM Home Arcade Game cabinet holds a special place in the hearts of fans,” said Scott Bachrach, CEO, Tastemakers, LLC. “With the Skywalker saga coming to a close later this year with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, we couldn’t think of a better way to honor the Star Wars legacy than by bringing back these classic arcade titles.”
