Arcade1Up Officially Releases The Star Wars At-Home Arcade

Just in time for the last movie in the latest trilogy, Arcade1IUp has released the Star Wars At-Home Arcade with three retro arcade titles. Featuring three titles from the past, along with the original control stick shaped like a TIE Fighter’s controls, this is about as good a reproduction you can get for the home shy of building your own or buying an original. They’re on sale at GameStop and WalMart right now for $450. Here’s a few more details on the release.

The Star Wars Home Arcade Game from Arcade1Up features the artwork from the original arcade machine on the cabinet and the included riser. Standing at just over 5’ tall (slightly below 4’ without the riser), the arcade machine comes with a light-up marquee, full-color 17” display and dual speakers. These features, combined with the real-feel flight yoke and control buttons allow for endless hours of gaming. The Star Wars Home Arcade Game features the original arcade versions of the classic games based on Star Wars: A New Hope, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi!

“The Star Wars 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.”
