A screenshot of a retailer accidentally posting the next three Arcade1Up releases has been making the rounds on the Internet. They supposedly are:
- Time Crisis on 10/15/2022
- Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 on 10/15/2022
- NFL Blitz on 11/15/2022
Those titles are some heavy hitters. Many fighting game enthusiasts consider Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 to be the best arcade fighter of all-time.
Of course, I need to share the obligatory disclaimer that Arcade1Ups aren’t for everyone, certainly not purists. Having said that I personally have several in my home arcade, including Star Wars, the Warlords / PONG 4-player bar table and Golden Tee. If you accept them for what they are, a space-saving less expensive way to enjoy these games with your family and friends and understand that the resale value likely won’t be great then you can have a lot of fun with them. I personally gravitate towards 1Ups that have unique controls that are difficult to replicate in MAME. Time Crisis would certainly fit that mold. I’m going to keep an eye out for news on it
