Things are getting exciting in the home arcade world. Arcade1Up, one of the most popular home arcade machine vendors, is releasing two notable cabinets in October: Street Fighter II Big Blue (see on GameStop) and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time (see on Best Buy). Both machines are now available for pre-order now.
Kids of the ’90s will remember these machines were some of the most popular destinations in arcades a few decades ago, especially for multiplayer. Now you can install them in your playroom, office, bedroom or even your kitchen.
Pre-order the new Arcade1Up machines
These machines cost a bit more than the previous Arcade1Up hardware, but they come with all the features. The Street Fighter II Big Blue machine features a riser, lighted marquee, lighted deck protector, and Street Fighter II stool. It also supports free online multiplayer over Wi-Fi.
Another thing that might not be obvious is that it includes a lot more than Street Fighter games. You get three versions of SF2, including Championship Edition and Hyper Fighting. It also offers games like Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, Darkstalkers, Knights of the Round, etc. You can find a full list below.
As for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time machine, it comes with an extended control panel with four control inputs so you and your friends can relive your glory days huddled around a machine giving the Foot Clan a hard blow. It features a riser, lighted marquee, lighted deck protector, and turtle-themed stool. It also offers free online games.
Additionally, in addition to the Turtles in Time game from 1991, it includes the classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game from 1989.
