It’s time to travel back to the past with Arcade1Up’s Class of ’81 machine, a full-sized cabinet that lets you play Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, and several other classics to your heart’s content. Not only that, but the Class of ’81 machine features original artwork, plus authentic controls and Wi-Fi support for online leaderboards.
Arcade1Up calls this a “split” machine. It combines the classic Ms. Pac-Man and Galaga games for a near-authentic arcade experience in the comfort of your own home. There’s even a built-in riser, a light-up marquee, and an illuminated deck protector—just like the classic machines from the 1980s.
When you need to switch things up a bit, the Class of ’81 machine also lets you play Galaga ’88, Galaxian, Dig Dug, Dig Dug II, Mappy, Rally-X, Rolling Thunder, Rompers, Tower of Druaga, and King and Balloon. That makes it a much better value than Arcade1Up’s standalone Ms. Pac-Man and Galaga machines, which run for $400 and $320, respectfully.
You can pre-order the Class of ’81 machine for $500 on Arcade1Up’s website. The company says that it will start shipping pre-orders in mid-October.
