Arcade1Up Announces X-Men 4 Player Arcade Cabinet With X-Men, Captain America and the Avengers AND The Avengers in Galactic Storm


Recommended Posts

At long last Arcade1up has announced they are bringing the Marvel 4-player side-scroller video games to homes. This will include the classic X-Men, Captain America and the Avengers AND The Avengers in Galactic Storm which was a single or two-player story mode or multiplayer head-to-head game released in the mid-90's for home platforms. The cabinet will also feature WI-FI like their more recent cabinets so folks can play each other online. No release date or where this one will be offered yet. Here is the official description:

For the mighty masses of Marvel mutant fans, it’s time to punch, blast, and slash through the home arcade cabinet you’ve been waiting for: The X-Men 4 Player from Arcade1Up!

Providing authentic arcade experiences in a home arcade form factor, Arcade1Up game cabinets are absolute must-haves for family game rooms, man caves, or a welcome distraction in the office. They play great, look great, and are instant conversation pieces.

Yep, here it is, with character designs straight out of the legendary Pryde of the X-Men animated pilot. The X-Men 4 Player arcade game was an instant smash hit in 1992, allowing players to control Cyclops, Wolverine, Colossus, Storm, Nightcrawler, or Dazzler, in taking on the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants masterminded by Magneto.
 
Four simultaneous players, amazing mutant powers, endless fun.

Ready to team up for some remote play? The X-Men 4 Player arcade game is equipped with Live WIFI; you can fight your way through each level with the help of fellow retrogamers playing from their own cabinets.

Oh, and you want more Marvel arcade action? You got it. The classic Captain America and the Avengers AND The Avengers in Galactic Storm are also both included!

Gorgeous cabinet artwork (with a matching riser!), stunningly vibrant graphics, and heroes that transcend generations. This is the next stage in home arcade evolution, the X-Men 4 Player cabinet from Arcade1Up!

But X-Men allowed for 6 players in the arcade...

 

Different versions out there had 2 and 4 player set ups. The 6 player one also had TWO screens to extend the amount of play. They were expensive even during that time, so imagine what it would cost the 1up to reproduce and sell for.

Never even heard of The Avengers in Galactic Storm. Still another cool Arcade machine I can't afford or store

Its a very very very obscure avengers fighting game thats not very good hence why you havent heard of it nor has most people. Its very questionable that they chose to add that title to the cabinet but there werent many avengers games that were made during the arcade days and id imagine they wanted to add some variety in gameplay selection.

Man two classics and an curiosity all in one cabinet.. what do these run? 

The XMen game is a classic even for non X fan. I bought the port that was on the PlayStation  a few years back.. loved the horrible translation errors..my favorite being “ Welcome.. to Die!!”

now Captain America and the Avengers is reliving my childhood. I bought home version of this game on at least 2 different systems and wore them out.. such simple game play but I was addicted! Plus seeing cameos by Quicksilver, Namor and the Wasp.. just awesome. And the best Avengers game I ever had until the first Ultimate Alliance game..( another I geeked out over)

i have heard of Galactic Storm but never played it or even saw it.. granted it was near the end of Arcades and gaming cabinets..I always dreamed of playing as the Black Knight in a video game. Sounds like this was a very Nortal Kombat lite .., or Justice League Task Force type game.. 

i neither have the space or desire for a full on game cabinet.. would love to see another crack at home version of all of these

I managed to play the X-Men game on the X-Box 360 and it is a lot of fun. Captain America and the Avengers I played on the Mega Drive and as I said before I never even heard of Galactic Storm. I which there was like a Marvel Retro Game collection but that would be highly unlikely given the different companies owning the different licences at a time

So Galactic Storm went with BK in his short lived ( and controversial) 90’s jacket look? Interesting. 

Now I definitely need a Legend version

Graphics seem poor, even for that era but I’m sure I would have played the heck out of it.
