Pre-orders Open For Arcade1up’s The Simpsons Arcade Machine, Better Get One Before The Scalpers Do!
In June, home arcade manufacturer Arcade1up announced plans to bring Konami’s classic arcade brawler, The Simpsons, to a living room near you. If you’ve been eager to add this latest addition in the company’s lineup of 3/4 scale cabinets to your game room, you’re in luck. Pre-orders are now open, giving you a chance to get your grubby mitts on one before the scalpers beat you to it.
The cabinet, released in celebration of the game’s 30th anniversary, is priced at $699.99. It comes packed with two games: Konami’s 1991 The Simpsons arcade game, as well as The Simpsons Bowling, which rolled onto arcades in 2000. In addition, it features Wi-Fi for subscription-free online cooperative play, a lit marquee, a clear deck protector, and a commemorative 18″ x 24″ tin sign – perfect for hanging up in your game room.
This cabinet is just the latest of several new Arcade1up cabinets to go on sale this Summer. The company previously opened pre-orders for Mrs. Pac-Man/Galaga: Class of ’81, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time, X-Men: The Arcade Game, and a Street Fighter II: Big Blue machine. All of which are scheduled to ship this Fall.
Needless to say, it’s a pretty exciting time to be an Arcade1up collector. Do you plan on adding any of these machines to your game room this Fall? Additionally, what other titles would you like to see the company produce cabinets for? Be sure to let us know in the comments.
