Tackle three classic sports retrogames from the NFL Blitz canon. This long-admired sports series, developed by Midway, kicked off back in 1997 with cross-platform support from all the major consoles, and won awards from across the board. It was also a standalone arcade machine that cound be found in many a '90s amusement arcade. Now it's back, reinvented as a free-standing multiplayer-oriented arcade machine by Arcade1Up - and it's more kick-ass than ever!
Grab your family, friends, the dog and indeed anyone who happens to be passing, and huddle up! The NFL Blitz supports four-player multiplayer with four sets of controls on the deck. It even supports online multiplayer over your internet connection, and you can compete for high scores to win your place on the global leaderboards. It's hectic, it's exciting and it's super-sociable! Form a game plan - and go win!
NFL Blitz delivers a perfect hat-trick of three hit games from the series: NFL Blitz, NFL Blitz '99 and NFL Blitz 2000: Gold Edition. Each title features all the professional teams, and the most legendary American Football players from its era. You can see some of these guys in the video above - they love this game - and with official NFL licensing too, you can be sure this is endorsed by all the right people. With officially-licensed Midway gameplay and control layouts too, you'll be getting to grips with the hectic game style in no time!
Each of the four joysticks is super-sensitive, with optical 49-way directional control - a first for Arcade1Up's cabinet range. Get stuck into your opponents with sensitive Jump, Tackle, Pass and Player Swap buttons, as well as a Turbo boost for those tight situations. There are volume and off/on switches on the forward-slanted deck, and a special LIVE button that activates the online multiplayer interface, and also acts as a Pause button during games. NFL Blitz is simple and intuitive to use, which means less time reading the manual, and more time for touchdowns!
The cabinet is sumptuously decorated with original, licenced NFL Blitz graphics. The top marquee is beautifully illuminated and the lower cabinet is fitted with a moulded quadruple coin door - but don't worry, it's only for show. This machine is always free to play. The control deck is wider than most Arcade1Up machines, in order to fit four sets of controls in. And it's angled forward slightly for ergonomic comfort. The 17-inch LCD screen reproduces colours and movement with perfect clarity, and the cab is equipped with stereo sound (with adjustable volume, and a headphone jack for late-night gaming sessions).
Also included is a machine riser, finished with matching NFL Blitz artwork. With the riser fitted, the cabinet stands approx 154cm tall - suitable for kids and adults alike. If you're playing with younger children or perhaps just fancy a sit down on a gaming stool, you can remove the riser, after which the machine stands just 120cm tall. If NFL Blitz was a big part of your gaming history, the all-new Arcade1Up cabinet will take you right back to that first whistle! But don't fumble it - stocks are limited!
