I’m dating myself here, but I can remember when arcades were, you know, an actual thing. They were these loud, dingy, dimly-lit gathering places that smelled of junk food and stale cigarettes, technology and teen angst. Most importantly, arcades were where you went to see all the newest and greatest video games, everything from now-ancient classics like Paperboy and Q*bert to more contemporary hits like Killer Instinct and The House of the Dead.
Arcade1Up launched three new 3/4-scale cabinets at NY Toy Fair 2020 over the weekend - including the highly anticipated NBA Jam model. Not only is NBA Jam one of the best arcade games of all-time, but Arcade1Up took things up a notch by adding Wi-Fi support for FREE online multiplayer - a first for their machines. They also added Frogger and a 40th anniversary Pac-Man cabinet to their lineup.
