It would be tough not to appreciate the vintage, retro value of these beautifully made countercades from Arcade1Up, bringing all the excitement of the early 80’s to homes around the world this autumn.
Arcade1Up has opened up pre-orders for its Star Wars Home Arcade, packing retro titles like Star Wars: A New Hope, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.
The latest countercade has been meticulously built to bear all the vintage designs of the original arcade machine. Coming with a riser extension at its base, the machine stands five feet tall and includes a 17-inch color LCD display, dual speakers and a light-up marquee. For those worried about damaging the fine decals, the arcade game will come with a clear deck protector to maintain it in crisp condition. Real Feel 4 Button controls and a Trigger Style Flight Yoke have also been included to the countercade as finishing notes for a streamlined gaming experience.
The Arcade1Up Star Wars Home Arcade Game is currently available for pre-order at gamestop.com, expected to release on October 25.
It’s expected to retail in the States for around $500, and UK fans can keep checking the Argos website where the machines will soon be available.
