Some technical specs: This will feature stereo sound, two speakers mounted at the top. The marquee will light up. It comes with a custom riser featuring Star Wars graphics. Responding to fan requests on the other units, this unit has additional graphical work on the front as opposed to the standard black kick plate, it is truly a premium cabinet. Arcade1Up says it will retail under $500 and this unit is really similar to the quality of the Golden Tee cabinet, so we expect it to come in at $499, which is under $500.
Arcade1Up is truly creating an experience for the fans with the addition of the flight yoke, the stereo speakers, and the amazing panel artwork. This is the first time these full-version arcade games are being made available for home play. We took a test run and it plays true to the original. Players will be able to switch between games just like the other Arcade1Up units, so you'll be able to go through the whole trilogy without having to restart the cabinet between games. While it may appear a little shorter than the other Arcade1Up units, this was just because it is a prototype and the actual will be a little taller and have full functionality of switching between titles.
The targeted release date for this is October/November timeframe. Just in time for the holiday season. Expect preorders to go live on Gamestop in about two weeks.
