I am a huge fan of what the folks at Arcade1Up are doing with their ¾ scale arcade machines. Well at this year’s CES, Arcade1Up have had a very strong presence and here are some of the things that I think are really cool.
They have unveiled some exciting new cabinets for 2019. The crown jewel in this is Mortal Kombat. The cabinet is the Mortal Kombat II cabinet, but the games on it are Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat II and Ultimate Mortal Kombat III. There is also a Golden Tee cabinet which is going to have a Happ Trackball and a light up marquee, I do think this one is going to have a higher price point though.
Another one that seems pretty cool is Karate Champ. Along with Karate Champ, it also has Joe & Mac and Bad Dudes on there. There is also a Street Fighter Cocktail style cabinet which has 12 games on it.
These include the ones from the original Street Fighter Arcade1Up machine, but games like Street Fighter Alpha 2, Street Fighter III The New Generation, Dark Stalkers and Saturday Night Slam Masters!
There is also an NBA JAM Arcade1Up cabinet coming! As I write this all I have found is one sneaking image that someone was able to take. To say I am excited for this is a huge, huge understatement.
Arcade1Up have also showcased new risers, stools, plushies and a line of bar top style arcade machines. I am very excited to see what else these guys have in store for us in 2019!
