Arcade1Up strikes gold with new X-Men and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade cabinets


I need some four-player hero in a half shell action

Growing up, two of the biggest cartoons in my house were X-Men and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Unfortunately, like most shows from my childhood, neither really holds up all that well for me. However, the games spawned from those series absolutely do, and soon we’ll all get a chance to replay them the way they’re meant to be played with new arcade cabinets from Arcade1Up.

The company behind last year’s Midway, Capcom, and Atari cabinets is back with two new 3/4 scale, DIY arcade sets. The first is the Capcom Marvel Super Heroes Home Arcade Game, which features: Marvel Super Heroes, X-Men: Children of the Atom, and The Punisher. The second cabinet is the Konami Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Home Arcade Game, which includes Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1989) and Turtles in Time. The Konami cabinet will be the first Arcade1UP set to include four simultaneous players, just like the arcade originals.

According to Forbes, the Konami cabinet will retail for around $349 while the Marvel cabinet will go for $299. There is currently no release date for the cabinets, but both will be on display at E3 this week, along with a mysterious third title that will “spark ‘A New Hope’ in the gamer galaxy.”
