Arcade1Up Reveals NFL Blitz Legends Cabinet: Remasters of Three Franchise Classics

Arcade1Up, the team behind the upcoming Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 arcade cabinet, introduces NFL Blitz Legends, an at-home cabinet featuring remasters of three games from the popular franchise. The cabinet includes NFL Blitz (1997), NFL Blitz ‘99 (1998), and NFL Blitz 2000: Gold Edition (1999), providing easy accessibility to these classics for $599.

“We are thrilled to bring NFL Blitz Legends to fans who have been eagerly anticipating the return of this iconic game,” says the Arcade1Up CEO. “Our team has invested significant effort over the past two years to both honor the games’ past while bringing them up to today’s modern standards through AAA development efforts in partnership with the NFL and FGA. We believe we have achieved an unbelievable feat of fun, exciting, action-packed gameplay while reengineering the original game.”

Arcade1Up has collaborated with the NFL and the Football Greats Alliance to ensure that hundreds of legendary players are featured, including Dan Marino (Miami Dolphins), Jerry Rice (San Francisco 49ers), Deion Sanders (Denver Broncos), Brett Farve (Green Bay Packers), Jerome Bettis (Pittsburgh Steelers), Terrell Davis (Denver Broncos), and Cris Carter (Minnesota Vikings).

In the remastering process, some tackles and after-the-whistle hits in the games have been modified or removed to align with the NFL’s current Player Health & Safety initiatives. The NFL Blitz Legends cabinet offers local multiplayer functionality as well as online Wi-Fi multiplayer and leaderboards.

Designed to resemble the iconic NFL Blitz found in retro arcades, NFL Blitz Legends is a five-foot-tall arcade machine featuring NFL legends on the sides of the cabinet. The artwork and gameplay showcase retro team logos and uniforms, providing an authentic gaming experience. The arcade machine boasts a 49-way joystick, a 17-inch screen with a light-up marquee, and a branded riser.

The machine is available for pre-order starting today at $599.99, and there are branded stools representing every team in the NFL available for $79.99. As a special offer, the first 1000 consumers who pre-order the machine from Arcade1Up.com will receive a limited-edition NFL Blitz Legends hat as a gift.
