The Simpsons Arcade is coming home soon. The classic brawler will join Tastemakers’ boutique Arcade1Up lineup, offering copies of vintage arcade machines to collectors.
Like the rest of Arcade1Up’s collection, The Simpsons Arcade Machine will be a 3/4 size replica of the original machine. It includes a deck protector, matching risers and vintage artwork that makes the cabinet the way you remember it.
In addition, Simpson’s Arcade has wi-fi capabilities that allow players to connect with Arcade1Up owners. Another unannounced bonus game will also be included in the cabinet. Pre-orders open July 15th.
The Simpsons Arcade is a beloved return to the first season of the show.
Originally released in 1991, Simpson’s arcade game is a tribute to the show’s first season, making it a beloved artifact among fans. It’s also quite entertaining to play, as the personality of each Simpsons family member is evident in their fighting style. It received one
re-release on PSN and Xbox Live back in 2012, but was removed the following year and has been hard to find ever since.
So while the release of Arcade1Up will not be cheap – machines typically sell for hundreds of dollars – it will be the most authentic home version yet of a classic beat ’em up. And Arcade1Up is not finished. Keep an eye out for IGN Expo on Friday, June 11, where more machines will be unveiled.
And of course, be sure to keep an eye on our E3 2021 event schedule as the Summer of Gaming continues.
