A couple days ago, Arcade1Up revealed its The Simpsons home arcade machine. Now, Arcade1Up has upped the ante in a big way, announcing home arcade cabinets for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time, Street Fighter II Big Blue, and Ms. Pac-Man / Galaga Class of ’81, the latter two of which are actually large collections of games. (TMNT includes a bonus title as well.) Pricing has not been revealed, but preorders will begin soon.
To begin with, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time is an iconic 1991 Konami arcade game that received a subsequent excellent SNES port. At a glance, it seems to be a major influence on Dotemu’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge as well. Getting Turtles in Time as a 4-player home arcade cabinet from Arcade1Up sounds amazing as is, but as a bonus, it also includes the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game. Preorders for this cabinet begin July 1.
Next up, Arcade1Up is releasing 12 fighting games and the like in its Street Fighter II Big Blue arcade cabinet. It includes Street Fighter II: Championship Edition, Street Fighter II’ Hyper Fighting, Super Street Fighter II Turbo, Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, Darkstalkers, Night Warriors: Darkstalkers’ Revenge, Darkstalkers 3, Saturday Night Slam Masters, Knights of the Round, Eco Fighters, Capcom Sports Club, and Muscle Bomber Duo. Preorders for this 2-player cabinet begin July 1.
Lastly, Arcade1Up is putting together 12 Namco classics with its arcade cabinet Ms. Pac-Man / Galaga Class of ’81. In addition to Ms. Pac-Man and Galaga, it includes Galaga 88, Galaxian, Dig Dug, Dig Dug II, Mappy, Rally-X, Rolling Thunder, Rompers, Tower of Druaga, and King Balloon. Preorders for this cabinet begin in August.
Arcade1Up still has one more surprise in the coming days, but until then, check out some photos of the arcade cabinets for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time, Street Fighter II Big Blue, and Ms. Pac-Man / Galaga Class of ’81 below.
