Retro arcade cabinet maker Arcade1up introduced several new cabinets at CES 2020, including NBA Jam, a sit-down Star Wars, special edition Burger Time, as well as a partnership with Zen Studios for 3/4 scale digital pinball machines.
The NBA Jam cabinet features online functionality "allowing users to play with other Arcade1Up cabinets in drop-in style games" in North America and features NBA Jam, NBA Jam Tournament Edition, and NBA Hang Time.According to Arcade1up, its pinball partnership with Zen Studios "includes titles from Bally/Williams and other yet to be announced, big names in the pinball space." The new Burger Time cabinet also includes arcade classics Karate Champ, Bad Dudes, and Caveman Ninja, and features art from Burger Time, as well as a light-up marquee, special edition riser, and "rounded side panels" to keep it "true to the original."
Also unveiled are a sit-down style Star Wars cabinet, a new Frogger cabinet and a SEGA Golden Axe cabinet featuring five games: Golden Axe, Shinobi, Altered Beast, Wrestle Wars, and Golden Axe: The Revenge of Death Adder.
The Burger Time special edition cabinet can be preordered now from the Arcade1up site, with a promised ship date of March 1.
To anyone who knows me on here, it'll come as now surprise that it's the Sega cabinet that excites me the most - finally, a home "port" of Revenge of Death Adder. $399 is a little too much for me, but hopefully this means the game hasn't been completely forgotten and that a Sega ages port is possible. Wrestle Wars was a fun game on the Megadive, so I'm sure the arcade game is fun too. It's also great to see NBA Jam again.
This is the one available for pre-order right now (can't see any release dates for the other cabinets):
