You can play Street Fighter 2 on just about anything these days, but there will always be something special about sidling up to a cabinet and choosing your fighter. The experience of going shoulder-to-shoulder with a friend/rival and mashing out dragon punches can be tough to replicate at home. Typically, you'd have to spend thousands on buying and maintaining an original arcade cabinet, or put a ton of work into building your own emulated facsimile. Enter Arcade 1Up, a new line of 3/4-scale (they're just shy of 4 feet and 60 pounds) cabinets that aim to give you an easy, more-affordable route to a home arcade.
The Street Fighter 2 cabinet will arrive along with four others starting on September 27, each with official panel art and classic controls for their respective games. You can pre-order your own cabinet right now, and you might as well save $100 off their usual price by picking them up at Walmart.

The company also plans to sell cabinet risers for the old-school standing arcade experience, as well as official stools if you need appropriate seating.
