This “Fast & Furious” Arcade Cabinet Brings Street Racing Home

Arcade1Up’s new “The Fast and the Furious” racing video game pares down the popular 2000’s arcade cabinet into a model that’s both affordable and fits in your home. This three-quarter scale replica is faithful to the original version and retains identical gameplay, driving controls, and panel art (sans the iconic likenesses of series leads Vin Diesel and Paul Walker). All of this in a size capable of fitting in a space as small as a studio apartment. In anticipation of “Fast X” hitting movie theaters, I’ve spent over a dozen hours putting this machine through its paces—racing around the streets of some of the most famous cities in the United States and Japan.
