The 30th anniversary of the NBA Jam is upon us, and to celebrate, 


 has announced two new home arcade experiences. Developed in partnership with the

National Basketball Association (NBA)

, the new “NBA Jam” 30th Anniversary Deluxe arcade machine lets fans play with or against some of the game’s greatest players, including Shaquille O’Neal, Hakeem Olajuwon, Isaiah Thomas, Karl Malone, John Stockton and David Robinson – in the company’s newest format. Both machines will be available this fall for the start of the NBA season.

Featuring the “NBA Jam” gameplay, the 30th-anniversary machine combines classic gaming with modern features. Jam-packed with three fan-favorite games – “NBA Jam,” “NBA Jam Tournament Edition” and “NBA Jam Hang Time” – and with built-in Wi-Fi, fans can compete against up to four players online and show off their skills via global leaderboards.

“Arcade1Up was the first to deliver an at-home ‘NBA Jam’ arcade experience more than three years ago – and it was our first-ever

machine to include Wi-Fi,” says Scott Bachrach, chief executive officer, Arcade1Up. “We’ve come a long way since that original release and are excited to celebrate the 30th anniversary of a true classic.”

The “NBA Jam” 30th Anniversary Deluxe arcade machine is a 5-foot-tall stand-up cabinet with a 17-inch color screen, dual speakers and a four-player control panel. Authentic design features include a light-up marquee and 3D molded coin doors, upgraded joysticks and light-up buttons. 

The “NBA Jam” Partycade, available at select Costco stores this fall, comes fully assembled out of the box, and can be hung on a door, mounted on a wall or played on a tabletop with the included leg attachments. Featuring the same-size color LCDs and controls as full-size Arcade1Up arcade machines, Partycades are designed to be easily installed (and moved) in any home, apartment, dorm and more. Additional “NBA Jam” arcades from Arcade1Up that are currently available for purchase – and will also be on display at NBA Con – include NBA Jam: SHAQ Edition and NBA Jam 2-Player Countercade. The “NBA Jam” 30th Anniversary Deluxe arcade machine is available for pre-order.
