Arcade1Up has made some of the coolest home arcade machines including Mortal Kombat, Rampage, and Street Fighter 2.
Each arcade machine comes with about 3 extra bonus games that are related to the main arcade machine’s game. For example Mortal Kombat 2 comes with “bonus” games Mortal Kombat and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3.
Killer Instinct launches with 4 games included. The extra games are some of the most popular arcade games ever including Killer Instinct 2, Double Dragon, and Battletoads the arcade game not console game.
Additional games were announced today including the expected Dragon’s Lair game and multiple improved Pacman, Street Fighter and other “legacy games” which include 12 games rather than 4 games.
Killer Instinct will have LIVE features which NBA Jam also included. No monthly or annual fees are required to use the Arcade1up Live features and NBA Jam still has players in multiplayer so this concern may not be an actual problem for KI fans wanting to play online.
The official statement is as follows…
“Killer Instinct™. Fans loved it, critics loved it. For many retrogamer enthusiasts it’s a definitive title of the mid ‘90s, with the gameplay, soundtrack, and 3D-rendered graphics all revered. Relive that video game era with this stop-you-in-your-tracks arcade cabinet, that also includes Killer Instinct 2™, Battletoads™ (yes, the arcade version!), and Battletoads™ / Double Dragon™ as a bonus game.”
“Need to add some height to this cabinet? No problem, the included matching riser gets you there. Want to pick a fight remotely? The Live WiFi feature allows you to take on opponents anywhere, playing from their own cabinet.”
