Ahoy Captain Cats here and today we are going to talk about what Arcade 1 Up showcased at this year Consumer Electronics Show or CES for short. Arcade 1 Up had three new arcade cabinets on display at CES and they were an NBA JAM cabinet, a limited-edition Burger Time arcade cabinet, and a Golden Axe arcade cabinet. Besides the new cabinets, they also announced a new product line, PINBALL MACHINES.
The NBA JAM arcade cabinet will have three games built-in and they are NBA JAM, NBA JAM Tournament Edition, and NBA Hangtime. The cabinet will have 4 player controls, light up marquee, custom graphic riser, custom menu options and the first to have online multiplayer. NBA JAM was released back in 1993, Tournament Edition, an updated version of NBA JAM came out in 1994 and HangTime came out in 1996.
The limited-edition Burger Time arcade cabinet will have four games all from Data East, a former video game company from 1976 till 2003. The four games are Burger Time, Karate Champ, Caveman Ninja, and Bad Dudes. The cabinet will support up to two-player, a light-up marquee but no online multiplayer. Only 3,000 of this cabinet have been made and once they are gone, they are gone. The Burger Time cabinet is up for pre-order now at the Arcade 1 Up site.
The last arcade cabinet Arcade 1Up showcased was a Sega arcade cabinet with Golden Axe as the main theme. The cabinet will support four players and will offer five games and they are Golden Axe, Golden Axe: The Revenge of Death Adder, Shinobi, Altered Beast and Wrestle Wars.
Lastly Arcade 1 Up showed off their new upcoming line of pinball machines, yes you read that pinball machines. They partnered up with Zen Studios to create a ¾ scale digital pinball machine and at CES they had two pinball tables and they are Star Wars and Attack from Mars. All we know so far that both machines will have 10 different tables and may cost around $600 and maybe released sometime later this year. I don’t know about you, but I’m sold on the Attack from Mars table because a cost for a new table can go up to $7000!
Arcade 1 Up stole the show with these new machines and I know I’m going to get my hands on the Attack from Mars.
