Final Thoughts

As a kid I spent hours upon hours in arcades playing on different machines, feeding in my 10p’s (yes, I am that old that the machines were 10p a go) and watching other people play when my money ran out.

I’ve always wanted my own arcade machine at home and Arcade1Up provide just that – an arcade machine for your home. These are 3/4 scale replica copies of the original arcade cabinets, although if you add the optional riser they become full size. They include all the original artwork, authentic controls (depending on your chosen machine) and come with multiple titles.

In the case of this review, we were provided with Capcom’s Street Fighter II Championship Cabinet which has three different Street Fighter II games built-in.

The moment I switched on the machine I was instantly transported back to my childhood and those arcades. The look, the feel, the controls, the graphics, the sounds, it was all there in front of me again, only this time I didn’t need any 10p’s!

The games are a perfect replica of those original arcade games and Arcade1Up have done a fantastic job of recreating not only the cabinet, but also the feeling I got as a kid – so well done Arcade1Up!

If you have the space and you want your very own arcade cabinet at home, then you should take a look at the range of arcade cabinets from Arcade1Up, you won’t be disappointed. I wonder which one I might get next!

Capcom’s Street Fighter II Championship Cabinet is available now priced at £349 without the optional riser.
