Waiting for your own Arcade1Up Time Crisis machine? Time’s up! Galaga, Street Fighter II, and an Atari 50 anniversary cabinet have also been confirmed.
Arcade1Up has been busy, today announcing a collection of new machines along with an expanded global presence, confirming new distribution partnerships in Canada, Australia, and European countries. The partnerships will be driven by Arcade1Up’s premier Deluxe line, which features a streamlined design that echoes the look of the classic arcade machine, created for the home, while incorporating modern features and technology.
In conjunction with the new distribution strategy, Arcade1Up also announced four new home arcade machines:
Time Crisis Deluxe Arcade Machine: This is the first at-home arcade experience for the popular shooter arcade game. Players battle against Wild Dog and other notorious boss characters in four classic arcade games. The machine will be available in October.
Atari 50th Anniversary Deluxe Arcade Machine: This machine celebrates the magic of Atari with 14 Atari Classics and 50 Atari 2600 games. It is the largest selection of game titles to be released on an Arcade1Up Deluxe machine yet.
GALAGA Deluxe Arcade Machine: Players take control of their spaceship and engage in intense battles against swarms of alien invaders in this machine from Bandai Namco.
Street Fighter II: CE HS-5 Deluxe Arcade Machine: This machine features 14 blockbuster Capcom games packaged in an authentic design inspired by the iconic Dynamo HS-5 shape.
“This is an exciting time for us,” said Cyrus Rosenberg, Senior Licensing Manager for Arcade1Up. “From our humble beginnings just five years ago to announcing we’re going global today – we couldn’t be more thrilled.”
“We are happy to extend our relationship with Arcade1Up to get the new line of Deluxe arcade machines in the hands of consumers in Europe and beyond just in time for holiday,” said Umberto Pirera, CEO, Polyphoto S.p.A. “There is incredible passion for franchises like TIME CRISIS and Street Fighter and we know that fans will be excited for these authentic arcade experiences.”
The four new Arcade1Up home arcade machines will be on display in the Polyphoto booth at Gamescom this week. All are set for global release later this year.
But, will the new Time Crisis arcade machine be available for sale in the UK? At this point in time, it’s available from Liberty Games, for around £699.
