In the age of next-gen consoles like the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Nintendo Switch OLED, some manufacturers are betting on retrogaming. The web is full of arcade games, but nothing can match the unique sensation of a real arcade machine. These machines, ultra-popular at the end of the 20th century, have been given a second lease of life by Arcade1Up and Neo Legend.
Arcade machines, the return of games from the 80s and 90s
The Neo Legend and Arcade1up arcade machines allow you to return to the 80s and 90s in an instant. Both manufacturers are committed to offering iconic video games from the late 20th century. Arcade1Up offers two models with evocative names. The first, Arcade1Up Countercade Pac-Man, features games published by Bandai Namco: Pac-Man, Pac-Man Plus, Galaga, Dig Dug and Rompers. The second, Arcade1Up Countercade Street-Fighter, features 5 installments in the popular Street-Fighter II fighting game series.
For its part, Neo Legend targets a wider audience, offering arcade machines featuring over 1,200 retro games! Integrated into the Neo Legend arcade terminals, the Antstream cloud gaming platform provides access to countless vintage video games. The legendary titles include Space Invaders and Earthworm Jim.
Compact retrogaming arcade machines
While arcade machines were first used in public spaces, gaming is now mostly experienced from the comfort of your home. That’s why Arcade1Up and Neo Legend also make compact machines. Very practical, they take up very little space and can easily be placed on a desk.
This is a real asset in the age of portable game consoles. Arcade1Up’s single-player arcade machines and Neo Legend’s multiplayer arcade machines require a minimum of space to offer fun retrogaming sessions. What’s more, these exceptional consoles are finished to the highest standards. Neo Legend works with artists to turn its arcade machines into genuine works of art.
Neo Legend Classic Arcade Expert: the modern arcade cabinet
While Arcade1Up is currently concentrating on the compact format, Neo Legend is developing arcade machines in the classic format, culminating at 1.75 meters. Like the Neo Legend Classic Arcade Expert model, these cabinets combine 80s design with modernity. The 61cm Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) screen ensures an optimal gaming experience. The arcade terminal is also compatible with Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X, PS4 and PC consoles, so it’s guaranteed to suit all video game content!
Retrogaming enthusiasts take note: all these arcade terminals are presented on the Son-Vidéo.com website. From the compact model with 5 integrated games to the classic terminal with access to over 1,200 titles and professional joysticks, there’s something for everyone!
