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.

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.

While details are sparse at the moment, Arcade1up has listed on their website two new Marvel based arcade machines that will be coming sometime later this year. The first is a Marvel based pinball machine which features artwork for the X-Men on one side and other Marvel heroes on the other side. The actual Pinball game portion seems to be Spider-Man based. The second machine is a new Marvel Vs Capcom arcade cabinet that features four games. X-Men Children of the Atom, X-Men Vs Street Fighter, Marvel Vs Capcom and X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse. The Children of the Atom video game was previously released on their first Marvel Arcade Cabinet machine and X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse was originally released as a SNES cartridge game. If I remember correctly it was a side-scroller type game featuring X-Men characters from the 90's. No details on specific release dates or pricing have been announced yet, but you can check out images for both machines below. We will update this story as more detals become available.
