Arcade1up to release TMNT and Marvel cabinets

If you don’t know who and what Arcade1up are. After the resounding success, and the runaway success of mini consoles by major console manufacturers, more and more companies jumped in with their own interpretation of mini consoles.

In 2018, Arcade1up shipped their first batch of mini-arcade machines. They were Pac-man, Asteroids, Galaga, Centipede, Rampage, and Street Fighter II’. Each cabinet has a series of 2 to 4 games a unit. They cost $299 each one. This year’s batch was Golden Tee, Final Fight (which also has Strider, Ghosts N’ Goblins, and 1944), Karate Champ (Bad Dudes’ in here), Space Invaders, and Mortal Kombat II (which also has the original Mortal Kombat, and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3).

It’s easy to assemble the arcade units which you take home with you when buying at select retailers at Arcade1up.com

You can modify the arcade cabinets as much as you like or whatever. And if for whatever reason, your unit isn’t working, you can order replacement parts. You can even order risers from select retailers to help raise the cabinets from a sitting height, to a standing height.

During E3 2019, the company behind the Arcade1up cabinets announced two new units. The first one is a Marvel cabinet, which features “Marvel Super Heroes,” “X-men: Children of the Atom,” and “The Punisher.”

And the second one is the TMNT arcade cabinet – it features the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game, and the sequel TMNT: Turtles in Time.

No release date given, but in a Q&A Twitter post, they said that the TMNT arcade unit will arrive in August…
