CES 2021 is in full swing, which means Arcade 1Up revealed a number of its upcoming cabinets. Some of them are entirely new. For example, there will be Arcade 1Up Killer Instinct, Dragon’s Lair, and Space Ace cabinets available in 2021. Some offer a new sort of look or take, such as the Atari, Bandai Namco, and Capcom Legacy Edition cabinets. Meanwhile, the Pong and X-Men variants give you a way to play four-player games.
Some of the variants are pretty basic and offer exactly what you’d expect. The Arcade 1Up Killer Instinct cabinet is also something of a celebration of Rare in general. It includes the original game, Killer Instinct 2, and then both Battletoads and Battletoads / Double Dragon. Live WiFi will be enabled for online matches. Both the Dragon’s Lair and Space Ace cabinets offer the same games, but a different appearance. Each one gives people access to Dragon’s Lair, Dragon’s Lair 2: Time Warp, and Space Ace.
With the Legacy Edition cabinets, each one will have a retro look inspired by classic arcade cabinets and a line-up of retro games. The Atari model will include Akka Arrh, Asteroids, Asteroids Deluxe, Centipede, Crystal Castles, Gravitar, Liberator, Major Havoc, Millipede, Missile Command, Space Duel, and Tempest. The Bandai Namco one will give people access to Dig Dug, Dig Dug II, Galaga, Galaxian, Pac-Land, Pac-Man, Pac-Mania, Pac & Pal, Mappy, Rompers, and Super Pac-Man. Finally, the Capcom cabinet will have 1994: Loop Master, Commando, Darkstalkers, Final Fight, Ghosts ‘n Goblins, Street Fighter, Street Fighter II: Turbo Hyper Fighting, Street Fighter II: The World Warriors, and Strider.
Here are videos of all three. First, here’s the Atari Legacy Edition.
This is the Bandai Namco Legacy Edition.
And this is the Capcom Legacy Edition.
As for the two four-player cabinets, each one includes multiple games to play alone or with a group. The Pong option is a pub table cabinet and will include Circus Atari, Pong, Pong Doubles, Pong Sports, Quadra Pong, Super Breakout, Tempest, and Warlords. The X-Men four-player cabinet, which also will have Live WiFi for playing locally or online, will include X-Men, The Avengers in Galactic Storm, and Captain America and the Avengers.
Release dates aren’t available yet for Arcade 1UP new cabinets, but we should begin seeing them appear in 2021.
