Tastemakers’ Arcade1Up has a variety of fan-favorite arcade machines on the way for this fall, including an Atari Star Wars Home Arcade Game cabinet that the company unveiled at E3 expo. Starting today, that machine is available for preorder exclusively from GameStop.com for shipping in mid-October.
The cabinet — which stands just over 5 feet tall with the included riser — features artwork from the original games; a light-up marquee; a full-color, 17-inch display; and dual speakers. But perhaps the most exciting feature is the real-feel flight yoke controller, a first for Arcade1Up. The cabinet includes the classic games based on Star Wars: A New Hope, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.
“The Star Wars Home Arcade Game cabinet holds a special place in the hearts of fans,” says Scott Bachrach, CEO of Tastemakers. “With the Skywalker saga coming to a close later this year with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, we couldn’t think of a better way to honor the Star Wars legacy than by bringing back these classic arcade titles.”
