Get Your Quarters Ready! Simpsons Arcade Game Cabinet Coming To Your Home

The Arcade was one of the highlights of many childhoods in the past and for many kids in the 90s, it was a popular place to hang out. The 1991 arcade game, The Simpsons, was definitely a loved game. My husband still has it downloaded on his PS3. For the 30th anniversary of The Simpsons game, Arcade1Up is bringing it back and preorders start July 15.

What Arcade1Up Will Be Giving Us

Arcade1Up is bringing us The Simpsons arcade cabinet with the classic 4-player controls. They are also providing Wi-Fi online co-op play along with a, currently unannounced, bonus game.

The Decline And Return Of Arcade Games

Sadly, arcades aren’t as popular as they used to be. The lack of arcades brought people to make or buy their own gaming cabinets with MAME, but it’s pretty expensive. Also, for some, it just collects dust. If you have kids, you know that feeling when you buy an expensive gift for them and it gets touched like once. That’s what I love about arcades. You go when the mood hits you. There has been an uptick in interest with places like Dave & Buster’s so luckily for some, there is a place to play.

Arcade1Up does make owning a cabinet much cheaper, but it takes up real estate in your home. We have the Pac-Man Connect and Play that has 12 games on it since we don’t invest a lot of time in retro games. However, If you are one of those that plays the hell out of a game like The Simpsons, go for it. My son is obsessed with Portal and anything Portal-related so I get the appeal. Just like with anything, buy what suits your wants and needs.

  • Love that game. Bet Cap hates it.

  • The bummer about arcades like Dave and Busters these days is they’re mostly cabinet versions of mobile apps you can play for free. And there’s NEVER any fighting games.

    • True. We go with our son so it’s a different experience as a parent. I guess that’s one thing that’s great about the game cabinets like at Arcade1Up. If you have the space and money, build your own arcade if you want.

  • When I was a kid, for several years we drove to Florida and rented a condo in Sarasota in the condo complex ‘House of the Sun’. The pool house had this Simpsons game and I would spend so much time and so many quarters playing it each year. I’d like to think the makers of The Simpsons Ride took some inspiration from it. (It’s kind of hard to see how they didn’t…) Although it was always weird that they had Mr. Burns steal a diamond (he’d never do that) and Smithers was such a malicious henchman (he’s not).
