At long last Arcade1up
has announced they are bringing the Marvel 4-player side-scroller
video games to homes. This will include the classic X-Men, Captain America and the Avengers

for home platforms. The cabinet will also feature WI-FI like their more recent cabinets so folks can play each other online. No release date or where this one will be offered yet. Here is the official description:
