Retro video gaming is back in full force, and Arcade1Up is releasing new titles to bring the arcade straight into your home, starting with some affordable at-home arcade cabinets launching at Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).
Marvel’s Super Heroes and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are among the fan favorite titles from the ’80s and ’90s that Arcade1Up, from Tastemakers LLC, is bringing back. They’ll be available to play at E3 in the company’s booth (No.623). Plus, the company will unveil a third title on Tuesday morning as the show floor opens. Spoiler alert: The release will be sure to spark “A New Hope” in the galaxy far, far away.
The new cabinets are slated for August release and each includes multiple games, including:
- Konami’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Home Arcade Game: The company’s first four-person arcade cabinet, featuring Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1989) and Turtles in Time (1991); and
- Capcom’s Marvel Super Heroes Home Arcade Game: Marvel Super Heroes, X-Men Children of the Atom, and The Punisher.
“With over 30 years of experience in consumer products, I have never seen such an involved or passionate fan community,” says Scott Bachrach, CEO of Tastemakers LLC. “We have watched tens of thousands of fans across our social media platforms request some of these new titles and we are really excited to be turning their hopes for our brand into a reality.”
Arcade1Up machines stand at just under 4 feet tall, each housing different classic arcade games, which come with immersive full-color high-resolution displays and sounds. The cabinets also feature original joystick and control-button configurations. Additional add-ons include a stool and a riser, fully equipping gamers for endless hours of play.
Booth No. 623 is located in the South Hall. Fans are invited to go check out the full 2019 line and have little fun with a fully functional, onsite, 16-foot Marvel cabinet.
