Arcade1Up Announces Killer Instinct & Tron Cabinets
Arcade1Up has revealed three new cabinets coming this holiday season as fans will be able to get in on their own home versions of Tron and Killer Instinct. For '80s gamers, the Tron cabinet was both fun and innovative as they tried to mimic what was in the movie, which made it a popular title back in 1982. They've done their best to bring back the classic Bally Midway version. The same goes for the '90s classic fighter Killer Instinct which will come with its own specialized stool and some classic Rare titles thrown into the mix. The third is the Namco classic Ridge Racer, complete with the steering wheel and pedals, as well as some other racing titles to complete the package. We have details on all three below as they become available for pre-order throughout the Fall.
