Arcade1Up brings classic Atari Star Wars trilogy home

It's summer 1983, my parents have stopped at Gordano services off the M5. Holding a battered copy of Peter Davison's Book of Alien Monsters, I wander into a smokey, dimly lit, arcade after hearing Obi-Wan Kenobi's voice! A childhood dream of flying an X-Wing into the Death Star trench is within my grasp...

The classic Atari title, with its dazzling vector graphics and use of original music, sound effects and dialogue from Star Wars, was quickly followed by The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. The latter I discovered in Dawlish Warren during the summer of 1986.

Arcade1Up, with an established pedigree for officially licensed replica arcade cabinets including Gauntlet (affiliate link), has announced the original Star Wars trilogy from Atari.
