Arcade1Up is taking another stab at the racing game genre with a deluxe version of The Fast & The Furious arcade machine. Relive the early days of the long-running franchise … for a price.
There’s no riser required for this machine since, thankfully. But then again, I don’t think a riser with peddles would work anyway. The entire cabinet is pretty eye-catching. It’s loaded with The Fast & The Furious early 2000s flair.
The Fast & The Furious Deluxe Arcade Game includes another game: The Fast & The Furious: Drift. But what would these two games be without multiplayer?
Up to four cabinets can be linked together via a local network but not with an internet connection. That’s lame, but considering the iffy online feature we’ve experienced with the NFL Blitz cabinet, it’s probably a good thing it wasn’t incorporated for The Fast & The Furious.
Arcade1Up machines have been all over the place as far as price goes. In the past two years, we’ve seen them go from $299 to $899, depending on the retailer. Yes, even basic machines with two games were commanding high price tags. Ugh.
The Fast & The Furious isn’t going to be inexpensive. The 64.4″ tall arcade machine will cost you $599.99 and has to be pre-ordered from Best Buy. The expected release date for The Fast & The Furious Deluxe Arcade Game is May 8th.
Here’s the complete list of features:
- Link up to 4 cabinets through local network for the ultimate arcade setup! (*cabinets need to be connected on the same local area network and will not connect over the internet.)
- Wi-Fi Leaderboards to challenge others across the country!
