Arcade1Up’s Holiday 2021 Home Arcade Lineup | Source: Tastemakers/The Pop Insider

Thanks to a few retailer leaks this summer (‘Sup, Wayfair?), you can file Tastemakers’ holiday Arcade1Up lineup in the “worst kept secret” department.

Timed with the opening of New York Comic Con (NYCC) this week,  Arcade1Up officially revealed plans for a trio of fan-requested home arcade machines. TRON, Killer Instinct, and Ridge Racer join the extensive lineup of 3/4-scale home arcade cabinets that the company has been releasing since 2018.

Perhaps one of the most-requested cabinets to hit the market thus far, Killer Instinct will bring the ’90s action to home arcades with Killer Instinct, Killer Instinct 2, and the arcade version of Battletoads packed inside one sleek machine. Arcade1Up also promises “bonus games hidden as Easter eggs.” Preorders for Killer Instinct begin Nov. 10.

Disney’s 1982 film TRON was accompanied by a groundbreaking line of arcade machines that featured a distinctive design and glowing flight stick. Now, Arcade1Up brings that magic back with a cabinet available to preorder beginning Oct. 19.

Finally, Arcade1Up follows its Outrun cabinet with another racing machine: Ridge Racer. The cabinet features a steering wheel and includes  Ridge Racer, Ridge Racer 2, Rave Racer, Ace Driver, and Ace Driver: Victory Lap. Fans can add this one to their home arcades when preorders open on Nov. 22.

It’s been a big year for Arcade1Up with the release of several new product lines, including the Infinity Game Table and Arcade1Up Jr., in addition to a refreshed lineup of CounterCades and Head-to-Head Tables, and more.
