Arcade1Up is expanding its line of replica arcade machines with new Marvel Super Heroes and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cabinets.
Announced at E3 2019, each of these new machines match the decals seen on their original counterparts and use arcade components. However, they are significantly smaller than old school arcade cabinets, standing at just under four feet tall. The cabinets will appear on the show floor at E3.
The Marvel Super Heroes cabinet features three classic Marvel arcade games: Marvel Super Heroes (1995), X-Men: Children of the Atom (1994) and The Punisher (1993). Meanwhile, the TMNT cabinet features two titles: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1989) and Turtles in Time (1991). Additionally, the TMNT cabinet is Arcade1Up's first to allow up to four players at once.
The cabinets are made by Tastemakers, winner of the 2019 Tech Toy of the Year award. Other replica arcade cabinets Tastemakers has released under the Arcade1Up banner include Galaga, Space Invaders, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter and Final Fight, among others.
"With over 30 years of experience in consumer products, I have never seen such an involved or passionate fan community," said Tastemakers CEO Scott Bachrach. "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's replica arcade machines are flat packed and require assembly. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cabinet will sell for about $349 and the Marvel Super Heroes cabinet for $299. Both will be available later this year.
