NYCC 19: Arcade1up launches tabletop Black Series

One of the coolest series’ of at-home form-factors that Arcade1up makes is their line of tabletops. And now they’re getting a little more sophisticated.

All-new deco

It’s tough not to like the ‘arcade’ deco of Arcade1up’s existing line. The overall look of their 3/4-size arcade units is extremely faithful to the original designs seen decades ago. So if you’re a fan of the originals, well how can you not dig that?

What we have here though, is something all together new. Arcade1up has announced a series of units that sport looks that are a little more… fancy. Jet black in color, the pair of tabletop units that will kick off the Black Series include Pac-Man and Street Fighter II.

As usual, the two games will include more than just the headline titles too. The included list breaks down a little something like this:

  • Black Series Arcade1Up PAC-MAN Head to Head Gaming Table: Features eight games from BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc. including, PAC-MAN PLUS, PAC-MAN, PAC&PAL, PAC-MANIA, SUPER PAC-MAN, PAC-LAND, Galaga and Dig Dug
  • Black Series Arcade1Up Street Fighter II Head to Head Gaming Table: Features twelve games from Capcom Co., Ltd.including, Street Fighter II: The World Warriors, Street Fighter II: Turbo Hyper Fighting, Street Fighter, Darkstalkers, Commando, Final Fight, Ghosts ‘N Goblins, Strider, 1944: Loop-Master, Street Fighter II Championship Edition, Super Street Fighter II The New Challengers and Super Street Fighter II Turbo.

Both units will sport original art (the logos), as well as full-size joysticks and buttons. The display is, of course, split in the middle so both players (seated head-to-head) can have their own view of the action. It’s a good size too, at 17″.

Both are available for pre-order now exclusively via, and are scheduled to ship some time this December. Either one will run you $499 USD.
