Arcade Legends 3 coming in October

arcadehero September 24, 2010 3

As interest in classic gaming continues to go on strong, that means that there will be a place for multi-game cabinets using licensed software. In the recent past that void has been filled mostly by Arcade Legends, by Chicago Gaming Company and the legacy of AL will continue this October with Arcade Legends 3. The latest version of the game boasts 130 titles, with games coming from Taito, Atari, Exidy, Stern, Data East, Irem and Incredible Techonolgies. IT brings one of the larger Golden Tee compilations to the table in AL3, from the Golden Tee Golf in 1990 and 1992, along with the many courses of Golden Tee Complete (2001-2005). With a list so extensive it should be easy for gamers to find something that they like but with any compilation there will be some games you are elated to see (such as Gate of Doom) and others that you are disappointed missed the cut (with such a Taito heavy list I would have liked to see Elevator Action Returns). Also lacking from AL3 that AL2 had are Capcom titles; Midway never had strong representation and Namco hasn’t been seen in these compilations either (they have their own arcade compilation game coming out soon anyways). You can see the full list of games on Arcade Legends 3 here.

      Actually something like AL3 is on the short end as it’s under $3000. :\

    The new Arcade Legends 3 is now on presale for $2875 with free shipping (a $275 value) at : http://www.bmigaming.com/arcadelegends.htm

    This new model comes with a superior “Golden Tee” style arcade cabinet, which is over 100 lbs heavier than the older AL2, and a upgraded monitor.

    Chicago Gaming has said informally that they may release a game pack upgrade in the near future that would include some or all of the missing games, and perhaps others, but this is not confirmed as of this date.

    Chicago Gaming will also be releasing a new AL3 “Pedestal” cabinet model, similar to the ITS “Showpiece” cabinets sometime in November 2010, at a price estimated to be about $300 to $600 less than the AL3 upright model.
