Arcade1Up’s long-awaited Big Buck Hunter cabinet is finally available to pre-order. The cabinet features four games from the popular light-gun series and two rifles for multiplayer. The best part is that you don’t have to go to the local pub to shoot virtual deer anymore–something that’s particularly hard during the current pandemic. The Big Buck Hunter Arcade1Up cabinet is $550 at Best Buy, and while you can reserve yours now, it’s unclear when it’ll release–Best Buy says it’ll notify you when a release date is announced.
The Big Buck Hunter cabinet comes with Big Buck Hunter Pro, Big Buck Safari, Big Buck Hunter Pro: Open Season, and Big Buck Safari: Outback–that’s a lot of Big and a lot of Buck. It’s a 3/4-scale cabinet, meaning it won’t take up as much space as a real cabinet. It includes an 18×24-inch tin sign and a matching riser, the latter of which will raise the cabinet and make it playable for adults.
This is the latest cabinet Arcade1Up has made available for pre-orders. Recently, the company unveiled pre-orders for its X-Men vs. Street Fighter machine, Marvel vs. Capcom cabinet, and more. Those cabinets include games from Capcom’s excellent crossover fighting games of the ’90s and feature absolutely gorgeous panel art from the original games–the Marvel vs. Capcom machine looks particularly great.
