Arcade1Up announced today that their latest arcade cabinet for Terminator 2: Judgment Day is going up for pre-order next week. The company has yet to put a price tag on it, but if it holds to the more recent prices of cabinets made, you're looking at somewhere between $400-600 for this one. As you can see from the image below, it looks almost identical to the original arcade versions. Except for the glaring change made to the guns where they've been changed to red and blue and can now be pulled out of the cabinet on wires instead of being attached to the control panel. So now it looks more like a Time Crisis title. The cabinet will officially go up on November 1st, 2021.
Arcade1Up's latest at-home arcade machine transports fans back to the '90s when visionary director, James Cameron, changed cinema 30 years ago with the movie Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Its thrilling action sequences and groundbreaking visual effects mesmerized audiences, and arcade enthusiasts asked for a video game adaptation. Exciting features consumers can bring home with the Terminator 2 home arcade machine include:
- 2 in 1: The home arcade machine comes with Terminator 2: Judgment Day and exclusive behind the scenes footage on how the Terminator 2 game was made!
- Hasta la vista: The game features Arnold Schwarzenegger, Robert Patrick, and Eddie Furlong reprising their respective roles in digitized footage.
- Force Feedback: Utilize sleek light guns for one or two players to play the roles of T-800 cyborgs. The gun vibrations and sound effects add additional levels for a more immersive experience.
- Easy Assembly: Once the arcade machine is plugged in at home, players can follow the in-game setting menu and on-screen game selections.
