X-Men Arcade1Up Cabinet Gets Huge Discount Today Only

This Arcade1Up cabinet starring Marvel's mightiest mutants just got a huge discount.


Marvel's X-Men starred in some of the best arcade games of the '80s and '90s, and if you're looking to bring some mutant nostalgia home, then check out this deal on an Arcade1Up X-Men arcade cabinet. Usually retailing for $750, this package includes a full-sized arcade cabinet, riser, themed stool, and a light-up marquee for just $350 (today-only deal, June 1).

As for the games that you can play on it, the X-Men arcade game is a classic four-player co-op experience starring the children of the Atom. The 1992 X-Men arcade game allows you to choose between Cyclops, Wolverine, Colossus, Storm, Nightcrawler, or Dazzler and face off against Magneto and his Brotherhood of Mutants. Up to four players can hop into a session, and if you don't have three friends to join you, you can team up with other players around the world through Arcade1Up's Live Wi-Fi system. Captain America and the Avengers and The Avengers in Galactic Storm are also included in this unit.

The cabinet itself has a design that's accurate to the original arcade units, a 17-inch screen, and full-sized controls for up to four players. The stool isn't too bad either, although the image of Cyclops firing off an optic blast suggests that he really doesn't want to be sat on. Show him who's the boss and that even his mutant powers are no match for your posterior. You'll want to be quick with this deal, as it'll only be available until June 2, after which it'll revert back to its original price.

If you'd prefer a different arcade experience, Best Buy also has deals on Mortal Kombat and classic Bandai Namco arcade cabinets, if you're shopping for something that's even more retro.
