It’s time to review Capcom’s Street Fighter II Championship Cabinet from Arcade1Up.

Ready to FIGHT? Perfect for when your friends are over, the two-player joystick/button configuration brings the Street Fighter ll Champion Edition arcade experience into your home or office. Street Fighter ll Champion Edition is a mix of combat, skill and strategy. It’s important to know when to block, jump, grapple, punch or kick your opponent. Fight against the computer or your friends, and perfect your own fighting style by mixing in creative combinations.

The Street Fighter Cabinet includes the following games:

  • Street Fighter II Championship Edition
  • Super Street Fighter II The New Challengers
  • Super Street Fighter II Turbo


  • Classic upright “Cabinet” design
  • 3 Games in 1 (Street Fighter ll Champion Edition, Street Fighter ll The New Challengers, Street Fighter ll Turbo)
  • Upgraded 17″ Color LCD screen
  • Real feel arcade controls
  • Original Artwork
  • Coinless operation
  • Volume control
  • On Screen Game Selection Menu
  • Plugs into an AC outlet

Size specs

  • Dimensions: 45.8 H” x 22.75 D” x 19 W”
  • Weight: 58.5 lbs

Arcade1Up machines stand at just under 4ft, each housing different classic arcade games, which come with immersive full-color hi-resolution displays and sounds. The cabinets also resemble the classic arcade joystick and button configuration you remember. Additional add-ons include a stool and riser– fully equipping users for endless hours of gaming!

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.
