The Simpsons Arcade will be home soon. The classic brawler will join Tastemakers’ Arcade1Up boutique range, which offers collectors copies of old arcade machines.
Like the rest of the Arcade1Up collection, The Simpsons Arcade will be a 3/4 replica of the original machine. It will include a deck protector, matching riser and a retro work of art that makes the cabinet exactly as you remember it.
In addition, Simpsons Arcade will have Wi-Fi capability, allowing players to connect with Arcade1Up owners. A second, unexpected bonus game will also be included in the cabinet. Pre-orders are open on July 15.
The Simpsons Arcade is a favorite return to the show’s first season.
Originally released in 1991, the Simpsons arcade game is a tribute to the show’s first season, making it a beloved artifact among fans. It’s also quite enjoyable to play, with the personality of each member of the Simpson family evident in their fighting style. He received a
reissue of PSN and Xbox Live in 2012, but was removed the following year and has been hard to find since.
So while the Arcade1Up edition won’t be cheap – machines typically retail for hundreds of dollars – it will be the most authentic home version to date on a classic bit. And Arcade1Up is not done. Stay tuned for the IGN Expo on Friday, June 11, where more machines will be unveiled.
And of course, don’t forget to follow our E3 2021 event schedule as the Summer of Games continues.
