Arcade1Up’s latest home arcade cabinets include Turtles in Time, X-Men, and more

Home arcade maker Arcade1Up revealed its latest line of cabinets, including several classic beat-’em-up games. The lineup features machines based around 1990s arcade staples like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time and X-Men.

Arcade1Up is best known for making affordable, faithful recreations of vintage arcade cabinets. As part of E3 2021, the company unveiled five new machines that will be especially familiar to anyone who hung out at the mall in the mid ’90s.

The Simpsons, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time, and X-Men are all getting dedicated home cabinets. All three machines come with four sets of buttons, allowing for an authentic multiplayer experience. Each machine is a spot-on replica of its ’90s counterpart. The Simpsons and TMNT machines cost $600, while the X-Men machine will be on sale for $500.

For those who want to go back even deeper, Arcade1Up revealed a new Ms. Pac-Man/Galaga class of ’81 cabinet. The single-player machine features both of those games, in addition to Mappy, Dig Dug, and more. The machine features 12 games in total and retails for $500.

Rounding out the pack, the company will launch a new Street Fighter II cabinet that features multiple versions of the fighting game classic, including the Turbo and Champion edition. The 67.5-inch machine is Arcade1Up’s tallest cabinet yet and features 12 games, including Darkstalkers and Saturday Night Slam Masters. It’ll be available to purchase for $500.

Earlier this year, the company unveiled several new products at CES. Its 4-play Pong Pub Table was our runner-up for our favorite gaming product of the show.

Logitech’s A50 X is a gaming headset and HDMI switcher in one
Tech of the Week Logitech A50 X

Logitech has announced its latest gaming headset, the Astro A50 X. It costs a whopping $380, but for good reason: It's a headset that's compatible with the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X that doubles as an HDMI switcher.

The new device is an evolution of Logitech's popular Astro A50 headset, which features a distinct base stand. The A50 X builds on that idea in a few ways. One key example is that it's able to connect to both the PS5 and Xbox Series X. That might sound simple, but the consoles feature different connection methods that make it difficult to find a one-headset-fits-all audio solution.

Fortnite’s Rocket Racing is so fun, it could have been its own game

Yesterday, Fortnite began its biggest expansion yet by dropping Lego Fortnite, a full survival crafting game that's playable for free within Fortnite. It was a pleasant surprise, but it isn’t the best piece of new content coming to the live-service juggernaut this week. That honor goes to Rocket Racing, an arcade racing game from the developers of Rocket League that’s available in Fortnite today.

This isn’t a simple kart racer that anyone could have put together in Fortnite’s creative mode. It’s a full-throated, free-to-play game that features 26 tracks at launch and some surprisingly deep driving systems. While Lego Fortnite may have had trouble standing on its own two feet outside of the Fortnite client, Rocket Racing could very well have launched as its own game -- and it still would be the best racing game of its type this year.
