Out today, AtGames’ Legends Ultimate Home Arcade includes 300 licensed games, adds support for online gaming, eSports, and more.
Following the recent success of consumer-grade arcade cabinets such as the popular Arcade1Up series of licensed machines and the recently Kickstarted iiRcade, AtGames today announced the availability of the Legends Ultimate Home Arcade.
Retailing for $599.99, the machine certainly isn’t cheap. However, it comes packed with over 300 built-in games from Data East, Atari, Jaleco, Taito, The Tetris Company, Disney, and more. And if that’s not enough games, don’t fret. Users can even add titles to the cabinet through AtGames’ ever-growing subscription service ArcadeNet and BYOG, a platform that allows players to stream PC-based titles from the top digital distribution platforms from AtGames’ cloud servers or your PC to the cabinet.
While many of the games bundled with the Legends Ultimate Home Arcade are natural fits such as the coin-op classics Cadash, Centipede, and Elevator Action, other choices are much more interesting. For example, it includes Technopop’s criminally underrated Sega Genesis FPS Zero Tolerance. Another odd yet welcome choice is the inclusion of the Taiwanese RPG Brave Battle Saga: Legend of The Magic Warrior, which saw a localized release thanks to Piko Interactive.

The cabinet features a 24″ HD LCD monitor, Wi-Fi connectivity, and sounds provided by a pair of down-firing stereo-speakers. Additionally, the two-player control panel comes populated with two sets of six-button controls, high-performance spinners, and trackballs to make each arcade classic feel all the more authentic.
