Classic Atari Star Wars arcade games are back in this new Arcade1Up cabinet

Revealed on the show floor of E3

[Update: Pre-orders are now open for The Star Wars Home Arcade Game.]

Just days after revealing it was creating arcade cabinets for classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Marvel games, Arcade1Up is back with one more huge announcement from the E3 show floor. Later this year, it will be releasing a new arcade cabinet featuring classic Atari Star Wars games. Included in the collection are:

  • Star Wars
  • Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
  • Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

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.

Makes Cyberpunk look like crap, don’t it?

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.
