2019 might have better graphics, sound, story, packaging and offer in every measurable way a better gaming experience, but you have to go a long way to beat the excitement these classic Atari games from the original trilogy generated. Thanks then go out to Arcade1Up who announced at E3 that they will be bringing back these much-loved games in a new cabinet.
The Atari Star Wars cabinet is the only at-home arcade unit to include the original software of these three titles and features the unique X-Wing pilot controller. The unit will launch this November and will cost under $500. And what are you getting for all that cash? The best vector graphics money could buy in the 1980s.
Included in the collection are:
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
Star Wars: Return of the Jedi
Like other Arcade1Up cabinets, it is built to a smaller scale than the cabinets that originated in arcades decades ago. The cabinets can be used as is, making them the perfect height for chairs or stools, or you can pair it with a riser that elevates the unit high enough to use comfortably while standing.
I’m making room for mine already….
