Look at what just arrived, this is the remake of the Ninja Turtles arcade machine.
The classic machine that I grew up with, and now you can have it in your living room.
And we get to unbox it, and build it, and play it.
Now I have built some of these arcade 1UP machines before, but this time around I want to get a little help to make it go faster.
Not the tool I picked but it can work.
This is a moment of childhood
Here we go.
There's only one way to celebrate building a Ninja Turtles arcade machine.
It's pizza time.
What, it's legit.
Now it's time to put these turtles to the test to see what it's like to play with four people.
Kick some shell.
Feels the same as the original, kind of the essential parts.
The important action feels great.
Especially considering the DIY on this.
I built it myself
This machine is full of so many great details, the art is the same as the original 1989 game by Konami but with some Nickelodeon branding on the outside because Nickelodeon now owns the rights.
Inside is the game you remember where you have to save a supporter April o Neil from bebop and Rocksteady and keep kicking all that Foot Clan but until you defeat shredder Well actually inside there are two games, along with original arcade game is Turtles in Time.
Now, both were in the arcade, but you may have also played them on Nintendo.
on the Sega Genesis, there was a very similar game called the hyper stone heist.
I think I rented that from blockbuster about 50 times.
So playing Turtles and Time.
Was also a fun trip down memory lane for me.
Now let's talk about the actual build of this machine.
It's not as big as an actual arcade machine.
It's about three-quarters to scale because an actual arcade machine would cost about three grand and weigh a couple of hundred pounds.
This is $400 and it weighs 60 50 pounds.
It's similar in size to the other arcade one at machines from last year, but this time to accommodate for players the dashboard as about six inches of length on each side given it wings .>>For the party Dude, I'm gonna read between you guys.
You'll notice the color for Michelangelo is yellow on the buttons and joystick.
And that's how the original machine was made, so they kept it authentic.
The company behind this went and purchased an original old machine, To replicate the art and it looks really good.
The Turtles machine is the second wave of these retro units being sold by arcade one up and in this year's models, you're going to notice a few upgrades and the quality of materials and features.
The buttons have a faster response time.
There's a better quality joystick a better screen.
The packaging was even better.
A great change is that the volume is now adjustable in an analog way where you can increase it and lower it through a range instead of before where it was just no volume or a preset, middle and high level of volume.
They included this plastic protector for the dashboard and you're gonna want And use it.
Just look at the Street Fighter machine we had in our office for the past year.
The art is all worn off from people playing in over the year, so you don't want that happening with this beauty.
Turtles also comes with a riser that's themed to the machine, and you're gonna want that riser to make it easy to play standing up.
Other machines have sold the riser separately, but it's smart that they included it here, because you don't want to have four people hunched over this close.
We got some finger grazing going on.
Yeah, this is like 25, 30 It wasn't smaller than like the regular cabinets gonna be.
Or maybe that's true.
It's not bad getting around it in a party setting.
It is a little cramped in the middle.
But at least the game isn't that long.
It did get a lot warmer actually.
Therefore bodies crowded around this like when I'm when I'm playing I like to get on top of it and I'm kind of like, okay, I can just play over here.
Has that screen worked for you guys in the side?
Are you at a weird angle at all?
It's actually really good.
The one thing that I also liked is that it felt very stable.
Even with everyone around mashing buttons, it wasn't shifting or shaking.
Been at all.
The first wave of RK web machines feature these retro titles like Gallagher, centipede.
And this year the company says they turn their attention to a slightly younger customer with titles like Turtles, Mortal Kombat and a Marvel superheroes game.
The CEO also told me that they're working on units that may have a light up sign in front instead of just solid wood.
So I like where they're going with this and I look forward to seeing what they have in store for other models down the line.
All right, so when I saw the console, I thought it would be too tight for four people but it's actually not so bad because your legs have to be further from it so that your arms can all fit next to it.
Actually on that note, generally it sounds very good too.
Sounds very RK.
Yeah cuz I do there is some low in there like with this girl coming up it's not all just treble.
It's being sold at Walmart for $400 and if that price gives you a bit of shell shock well this is something meant to be a fun statement piece for.
When you have people over for parties or maybe you want to make your office buy one to let off steam with your co-workers.
Now I love the art on this thing.
It's retro, it's fun and it just makes you smile seeing it and thinking about Chum.
I think this is a [UNKNOWN] idea.
Like if this activates your nostalgic glands and you [UNKNOWN] a arcade gallery [UNKNOWN] Like it's a great size, and it will be greater parties.
Like he's a party dude.
I like [UNKNOWN]
Leonardo foreign leadership.
I remember this game outside.
So Barbara, things are really, really hard.
Re-up in life.
Giving ourselves lives here.
Give yourselves all lives.
Everyone's giving themselves lives.
[LAUGH] Thanks for watching.
Jump in the comments, and let me know if you have any questions about the game or share where you remember playing this machine or what characters you liked the best.
I'm all about Michael [INAUDIBLE] And you can also let us know what other classic machines you want to see or you want to make next, or just tell me about a pizza toppings, because apparently no one here likes anchovies but me so that's fine.
It's more pizza for me guys.
Go ninja go ninja go go go ninja go go go go go go ninja go ninja.
