If you’re after a 1.2m tall free standing arcade cabinet, you can grab one from ALDI this weekend. For real.
Two cabinets will be available for $500 each. The first is all about Street Fighter, with Street Fighter 2, Street Fighter 2 Turbo and Street Fighter 2: Champion Edition. The second is all about classic co-op Midway games, including Defender, Joust, Gauntlet, Rampage.
Based off the description provided from the ALDI catalogue at OzBargain, the cabinets are the flatpack Arcade1Up cabinets. The company announced earlier this year that the cabinets would be coming to EB Games and ALDI this month.
Here’s a shot of the ALDI catalogue:
The cabinets are available from EB Games as well, but you’ll have to pay just under $700 for them. So if you have an ALDI nearby, this could be a smashing Christmas gift.
Here’s a quick spec dump:
• Authentic Joysticks + Buttons
• 17″ (43cm) Color LED Screen
• No coin slots
• Continuous Play
• Gaming Stool Included
To find out more about the cabinets, head to the Arcade1up site. No listings for the cabinets are on the ALDI site as of yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
