Arcade1Up: New Cabinets Revealed at CES 2021

Posted by: Nick on January 11, 2021 at 07:06 PM CST


While no time frame or pricing was officially announced, we think these most likely will release in the third or forth quarters given the current global manufacturing and shipping delays. It is worth mentioning that most of the reveals at CES and Toy Fair last year were released prior to the end of 2020, however the pinball units have yet to realize wide release due to shipping issues. We expect most of these units to cost $449 and $499 for the larger units based on last year's pricing compared to similar units.

It has become more and more apparent that Arcade1Up is catering to those seeking more features and design aesthetics in the cabinets. All the releases last year included the custom risers and light-up marquees, and that seems to be holding true for the new reveals. Additionally a new aesthetic, faux coin slots, appears to have been added to the units as well. Lastly, the popular feature we saw on the NBA Jam cabinet, WiFi gameplay, is also making a return.

X-Men Four-Player Cabinet

Finally! While we were disappointed the "Konami Cabinet" with X-Men, TMNT, and the Simpsons was never realized, we are glad to finally get this title in the four-player deluxe size. The cabinet features artwork from the original Konami X-Men cabinet. In addition to the main title, it also includes Captain America and the Avengers and Avengers in Galactic Storm. This unit also features WiFi enabled play.

Killer Instinct

Featuring artwork from Killer Instinct, the cabinet includes Killer Instinct, Killer Instinct 2, Battletoads (arcade), and Battletoads/Double Dragon.

Dragon's Lair or Space Ace Variant

Displayed in the original 4:3 aspect, the cabinet features artwork from the original Dragon's Lair or Space Ace and features Dragon's Lair, Dragon's Lair 2, and Space Ace.

Atari Legacy Cabinet

Featuring artwork from Tempest, the Legacy cabinet includes 12 Atari games, most released in various forms of A1U cabinets in the past. This unit includes Asteroids, Asteroids Deluxe, Centipede, Major Havoc, Missile Command, Akkh Arrh, Crystal Castles, Tempest, Millipede, Gravitar, Liberator, and Space Duel.

Capcom Legacy Edition Cabinet

Another legacy cabinet featuring combinations of previous Capcom cabinets and table tops. The artwork is based on the original Street Fighter 2 and includes 1944, Commando, Darkstalkers, Final Fight, Ghosts n Goblins, Street Fighter, Street Fighter II: World Warrior, Street Fighter II: Champion Edition, Street Fighter II: Turbo, Street Fighter II: The New Challengers, and Strider.

Bandai Namco Legacy Cabinet

Same concept as the others but featuring artwork from Pac-Man and combing games from tabletop and upright cabinets. Games included Dig Dug, Dig Dug II, Galaga, Galaxian, Mappy, Pac & Pal, Pac-Land, Pac-Man, Pac-Man Plus, Pac-Mania, Rompers, and Super Pac-Man.

Pong Four-Player Pub Table

Taller than the cocktail table but similar in concept the unit features artwork from Pong and includes two and four-player titles. Titles include Circus Atari, Pong, Pong Doubles, Pong Sports, Quadrapong, Warlords, Super Breakout, and Tempest.
