Arcade1Up has made it easier than ever for diehard arcade fans to bring their favorite games right into the home. Now, you can preorder their version of the classic 1991 arcade game The Simpsons for release on Nov. 7.
If you’ve somehow never played this game, it follows in the same vein as other arcade classics such as X-Men and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. With support for up to four players, this game lets you and your friends take control of Bart, Lisa, Homer, and Marge as they go on a beat ’em up adventure to save Maggie from the evil Mr. Burns.
The Arcade1Up Simpsons arcade machine brings this experience home. It also packs in some fun extras, including another game: The Simpsons Bowling. And even if you don’t have a lot of local friends to help you play, the system’s built-in wifi will help you connect with fellow players online.
Interested in preordering The Simpsons arcade machine? The good news is that you have multiple preorder options, including different bundles to choose from.
If you want to order just the arcade machine itself, you can preorder from Walmart for $529. This gives you the base game as well as an arcade riser.
However, you can also preorder an arcade machine bundle for $699.99. This comes with the machine, the riser, a Simpsons tin wall sign, and two matching Simpsons stools to sit down on while you play. And you can preorder these bundles from Best Buy, Gamestop, and Target.
For fans of the 1991 Simpsons arcade game and 2000 Simpsons Bowling, this is a great product. But if you’re still on the fence about whether to preorder, check out the full list of features below as detailed by Arcade1Up.
