New NBA Jam offers Shaq Edition
Basketball gaming enthusiasts can now bring one of the greatest players of all time into their living room, mancave or home office. Arcade1Up the leader in at-home retro game entertainment, today announced the release of NBA JAM™: SHAQ EDITION home arcade machine, its largest home arcade cabinet yet, sporting artwork of Shaq on each side of the cabinet. With the release of NBA JAM™: SHAQ EDITION and Golden Tee 3D earlier this year – along with the company's recent announcement to bring back NFL Blitz after 25 years with the first at-home experience in NFL Blitz Legends - Arcade1Up is making a concerted push into the at-home retro sports arcade machine category.
"We are honored to have worked closely with Shaq to create his very own arcade machine," said Scott Bachrach, CEO, Arcade1Up. "The pure scale of it is something our fans have been asking for since our inception – we thought, who better to make a large-scale machine than the world's favorite big man!"
At 67 inches tall with a 19-inch screen, NBA JAM: SHAQ EDITION is Arcade1Up's largest machine yet and features three classic games NBA JAM™, NBA JAM TOURNAMENT EDITION™ and NBA HANGTIME™. Sporting Shaq's distinct silhouette on each side of the cabinet, the Wi-Fi connected arcade machine allows gamers to play up to four opponents from their own NBA JAM™: SHAQ EDITION or on Arcade1Up's original NBA JAM™ arcade machine.
