Marvel vs. Capcom fans had some actually good news come earlier this Summer when Arcade1Up announced they would be releasing special arcade cabinets for the classic fighting games. Now it's time to pick one up while you can.

The Marvel vs. Capcom and X-Men vs. Street Fighter Arcade1Up cabs are now available for pre-order, and they even include online play capabilities which does drive the price up a bit.

Exclusively through Best Buy in the United States, a special edition of the MvC arcade cabinet can be reserved for $499.99 USD — which makes it as much as the rumored PlayStation 5 price — though it does come with some added bonuses.

All of the games included with the system will feature online play through Wi-Fi except for Marvel Super Heroes: War of the Gems. This will also be the first time X-Men vs. Street Fighter will be available with online multiplayer in official capacity.

This special edition also comes packing a slick arcade stool which includes artwork of the Marvel characters from the side of the cabinet with Spider-Man, Juggernaut, Wolverine, Hulk, Venom and others.

The Marvel vs. Capcom cabinet will include the games Marvel Super Heroes, X-Men vs. Street Fighter, Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, Marvel Super Heroes: War of the Gems and of course the original MvC.

Marvel 2's absence from the lineup had some speculating that we might see the game appear in some other fashion like a new console re-release for its 20th anniversary though nothing has matierialized on that front yet.

While the main website does not list a release date, Best Buy's pre-order page states the MvC arcade cabinet bundle will launch on October 1, 2020. No page currently seems to be available for the X-Men vs. Street Fighter option, however.

You can check out the trailer for the newest Arcade1Up fighting game machine below.
