Arcade Machines are often thought to be the most classic way to play video games. The vintage cabinet designs of some classic gaming icons are hard to dismiss but easy to forget about nowadays. With more and more retro titles finding their way into modern libraries, fans of the Arcade have found new ways to bring the experience home. One such company, Arcade1Up, has been working on that vintage home cabinet feeling for a long time. With a catalog of titles ranging from Street Fighter to PacMan, there’s plenty to enjoy. Now it seems that their horizons are expanding with the Arcade1Up Ridge Racer and Tron cabinet pre-orders. This includes the pre-order dates for the Killer Instinct cabinet revealed at CES earlier this year. The pre-orders for all three new cabinets are just a few weeks away from each other.
When Do the Arcade1Up Tron and Ridge Racer Cabinet Pre-Orders Open?
Within the first quarter of 2022, there should be a decent idea of when the cabinets will ship. The pre-orders for the cabinets are all staggered by week with Tron first. Opening on 10/19, the unique joystick and arcade cabinet design is sure to attract collectors and fans alike. Recreating the lighting and graphics of Discs of Tron, Arcade1Up has also created unique buttons for the title. Then, pre-orders for the Killer Instinct cabinet will open on November 10. Featuring two-controller setups, the cabinet also includes Killer Instinct 2. Alongside the original Battletoads arcade game, the NES and SNES versions have also been included. Finally, the Ridge Racer arcade machine pre-orders start on November 22. The classic pedals and steering wheel with a shifting knob all assemble an authentic arcade racing cabinet. Differing from Arcade1Up’s seated machines, the upright cabinet places players right into the driver seat.
