Arcade1Up, the makers of retro arcade cabinets and other accessories, has introduced their first sit-down arcade driving cabinet. Check out the trailer below.
The cabinet includes 1986’s Outrun, 1989’s Turbo Outrun, 1992’s Outrunners, and 1988’s Power Drift. Most notably, rather than having to stand to play it like a normal arcade cabinet, the package includes a custom matching bench seat, just like the arcades of days gone by. Check out the gallery below.
Arcade 1Up’s Outrun cabinet also includes a steering wheel, brake, and pedal peripherals, a 17-inch LCD screen, a variable volume switch, dual speakers, and a light-up marquee. Like most of Arcade1Up’s offerings, the cabinet is a little smaller than the more bulky machines you’d find in classic arcade, but definitely not by much this time around. The Outrun cabinet measures 45.8 inches in height, while the bench seat measures: 38.5” x 19.8” x 18.5”. The box itself measures 6.75” x 47.75” x 23.75”.
Weighing in at a spritely 113lbs, this mini Outrun is a blessing to backs everywhere, considering the original cabinet could reach 350lbs, according to VintageArcade.
Arcade1Up’s Outrun cabinet can be all yours for $499.99 and can be ordered through Arcade1Up’s site. It’s worth mentioning that other retailers will have this cabinet at a later date as well. You’re effectively paying an extra $100 or so for that bench, although the product images show the cabinet can be played standing up as well… Or kneeling, depending on your height (again, it’s only 45.8 inches tall).
Arcade1Up also recently announced a new series of Star Wars, Marvel, and Mars Attack! pinball machines, each with 10 games available, coming soon.
