Arcade1Up Announces Terminator 2 Arcade Machine
If you think you’ve seen everything from Arcade1Up, you haven’t. They seemed to have covered all their bases with classic stuff like Pac-Man, 90s fighters like The Simpsons, Killer Instinct and Street Fighter, sports games like NBA Jam, and even racing cabinets like OutRun. If you’re asking what’s left, you forgot about light gun games. Arcade1Up’s first is heading your way this month.
Terminator 2 was one of the most popular movies of the 90s and its arcade counterpart was a big quarter-muncher around the same time. You and another player grab blue and orange weapons and face down a relentless gallery of T-800 machines in their raw skeletal form. Most Arcade1Up machines have at least one bonus game relating to the first one, but since T2 was one of a kind, this one will come with the movie itself, plus behind-the-scenes features.
“Arcade1Up is excited to expand its family home game room with the addition of the epic, Terminator 2,” said Scott Bachrach, CEO of Tastemakers, LLC and Arcade1Up. “The original game, developed by Midway, was a blockbuster hit and now 30 years later, Arcade1Up is thrilled to celebrate this title in a home arcade machine for Terminator fans.”
- 2 in 1: The home arcade machine comes with Terminator 2: Judgment Day and exclusive behind the scenes footage on how the Terminator 2 game was made!
- Hasta la vista: The game features Arnold Schwarzenegger, Robert Patrick, and Eddie Furlong reprising their respective roles in digitized footage.
- Force Feedback: Utilize sleek light guns for one or two players to play the roles of T-800 cyborgs. The gun vibrations and sound effects add additional levels for a more immersive experience.
- Easy Assembly: Once the arcade machine is plugged in at home, players can follow the in-game setting menu and on-screen game selections.
This potentially opens the door to other light gun experiences like Area 51 and House of the Dead. We’ll let you know if they happen. Preorders open for the Terminator 2 Arcade1Up machine in our timeline November 1.
