These features, combined with the real-feel flight yoke and control buttons allow for endless hours of gaming.

“The Star WarsTM Home Arcade Game cabinet holds a special place in the hearts of fans,” said Scott Bachrach, CEO, Tastemakers, LLC. “With the Skywalker saga coming to a close  later this year with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, we couldn’t think of a better way to honor the Star Wars legacy than by bringing back these classic arcade titles.”
