Terminator 2’s Arcade Game Coming Soon From Arcade1Up!


Come with me … if you have $699.

Another classic arcade cabinet will soon be available for us retro gaming fans. Arcade1Up has secured the license to produce Midway’s Terminator 2 shooter, complete with two lightguns! This game was in every arcade and even hotels I stayed at in the early ’90s. You couldn’t escape the Terminator franchise to save your life!


The game itself threw a lot at you and was a quarter muncher for sure. However, it was so popular that it had several ports to home consoles, including the Gameboy.

Arcade1Up’s machine will run you $699. BestBuy has a ship date listed as 02/05/2022. Just in time for St. Valentine’s Day! Oh, my wife will be thrilled with this purchase that I’m totally not telling her about instead of buying her jewelry!



In anticipation, Midway developed T2 the arcade game simultaneously with the film’s production and release. Utilizing sleek light guns for one or two players to play the roles of T-800 cyborgs, the game featured Arnold Schwarzenegger, Robert Patrick, and Eddie Furlong reprising their respective roles in digitized footage.

The game was a blockbuster hit 1991, and now 30 years later, Arcade1Up is thrilled to produce this title in a home arcade form factor. Arcade1Up game cabinets have quickly become absolute must-haves for retrogame enthusiasts and pop-culture collectors; they play great, look great, and are instant conversation pieces. With T2, Arcade1Up fans will get their hands on one of the most requested titles ever.

So, when’s Revolution X coming out? Seriously. And Area 51? How about SEGA’s Star Wars Trilogy? Gimme!


What I’m wondering about the T2 cabinet is how two players can play comfortably. I have an MKII cab in my office, and it’s not all that pleasant to play side by side with someone. Also, I see the guns each have a length of cable connecting them to the control board. Will it be enough to keep two people from bumping guns [heh]?
