New Mortal Kombat Arcade1Up Cabinet Comes With 12 Classic Midway Games

The Midway Legacy Edition arcade cabinet features Mortal Kombat II art and joins a growing collection of legacy cabinets.


Arcade1Up is adding to its lineup of legacy cabinets with a new machine featuring 12 games from Midway's heyday. The Midway Legacy Edition arcade cabinet was revealed alongside the first trailer for the upcoming Mortal Kombat movie. Arcade1Up already revealed three legacy cabinets at CES earlier this year--Capcom, Bandai Namco, and Atari--each of which also have 12 games.

The Midway Legacy Edition doesn't have a release date or price just yet, but you can sign up on the company's website to receive notifications on availability. The Bandai Namco cabinet is up for preorder for $400, so that probably gives you an idea of what to expect with the Midway model.

The Midway Legacy Edition uses Mortal Kombat II decals on the front, sides, and light-up marquee. Raiden appears on both sides, raising his hand to create lightning. You don't actually need quarters to play it, but the cabinet does have a faux coin panel on the front to further add to its classic arcade look. It's not raised, though the design does give it that aesthetic. Other new cabinets that aren't in the Legacy Edition lineup, such as Killer Instinct, will have molded plastic faux coin doors.

The riser has the Mortal Kombat logo on the front and Mortal Kombat II decals on the sides. It's subtler than some of Arcade1Up's other designs, blending more in with the rest of the cabinet.

Since the cabinet is Mortal Kombat-themed, the six-button controls--one set for each player--are labeled with kicks, punches, block, and run. The pair of red joysticks also have markers next to them indicating different moves in Mortal Kombat II.

The Midway Legacy Edition's lineup is impressive. Though headlined by three Mortal Kombat games, it also comes with arcade classics such as Joust, Rampage, and Defender. It's essentially the entire game lineup from the first Mortal Kombat II cabinet, the entire Rampage cabinet, and a few more titles. Here's the full list of games:

  • Mortal Kombat
  • Mortal Kombat II
  • Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3
  • Joust
  • Defender
  • Rampage
  • Gauntlet
  • Paperboy
  • Rootbeer Tapper
  • Bubbles
  • Toobin
  • Wizard of Wor
