New York City Comic-Con officially kicks off on Thursday and to celebrate the occasion, arcade cabinet maker Arcade1Up announced its plans for a limited-time discount, along with the addition of two Head 2 Head gaming tables to its 2019 lineup.
Best known for bringing back classics with its arcade cabinets, Arcade1Up says that both of its new gaming tables are designed to include a black theme with each respective table containing original artwork for each title. The latest gaming tables also feature a 17-inch full-color display and, as the product name implies, includes two control decks.
The Pac-Man gaming table offers eight games, six of them are installments in the Pac-Man franchise, including the original Pac-Man and Pac-Mania. The other two games included are popular old-school hits Dig Dug and Galaga.
The Street Fighter II table offers 12 games; six of them are entires from Capcom’s popular fighting game franchise. Out of the 12-game roster, several variations of Street Fighter II will be featured, including Street Fighter II: Turbo Hyper Fighter and Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers. The Street Fighter II gaming table also includes a few throwbacks hits from the Japanese developer, including 1944: The Loop Master, Darkstalkers, and Final Fight.
