Arcade1Up's NBA Jam Cabinet With Online Multiplayer Now Available For Pre-Order

Arcade1Up showed off an array of new arcade cabinets at CES 2020, and the NBA Jam cabinet with online-multiplayer capability was among the top of our list for the best of the big tech show. Now, as Toy Fair 2020 kicks off in New York City, Arcade1Up has opened up pre-orders for its new machines–NBA Jam, Frogger, and Pac-Man 40th Anniversary Edition. All three machines can now be ordered from Arcade1Up’s website. Other retailers are expected to carry pre-orders, and we’ll update this article when those go live. Unfortunately, no specific release date has been announced at this time.

The NBA Jam cabinet’s capable of online multiplayer across all three of its included games: NBA Jam, NBA Jam Tournament Edition, and NBA Hangtime. Up to four players on four different machines are able to play together. We spoke to Arcade1Up at CES 2020, where the company told us it’s worked to license the majority of the players who appeared in the classic game.

Frogger, on the other hand, focuses on Konami’s classic games. The cabinet includes Frogger, Time Pilot, and Time Pilot ’84. We played the Frogger machine at CES 2020 and were impressed with the light-up marquee and panel art of the classic, jaywalking frog.

Lastly, pre-orders have opened for Pac-Man 40th Anniversary Edition. This cabinet features faux wood-grain side panels and artwork that resembles the original Pac-Man cabinet. The included games are Pac-Man, Galaga, Pac-Man Plus, Super Pac-Man, Pac & Pal, Pac-Land, and Pac-Mania.

Arcade1Up is at New York Toy Fair until February 25 and will have its complete 2020 line of cabinets and other retro gaming products on show. If you’re interested in seeing what they had at CES, check out GameSpot’s guide to the best retro gaming tech we saw at CES 2020.
