Legends Ultimate Racer

News from 9/8/2021

On the Super Game Room Dudes National Owners Day Awards show, the winners of the NOD-A contests were revealed. Congratulations to all the winners! In addition, a new product that is in-development was announced – the Legends Ultimate Racer! No pricing or release date has been set as the unit is in on-going development and prototype stages. However, as with all Legends products it will be an open and connected platform. That is, not only will you be able to play the built-in racing games but you’ll be able to connect a PC and it will optionally support multiple HDMI displays (2nd and 3rd monitor).

Legends Ultimate Racer

AtGames had the the following to say on the AtGames Facebook page:

Thank you all for the response to the surprise Legends Ultimate Racer reveal on the Super GameRoom Dudes show during NOD-A (https://youtu.be/_dolgEGFgSs?t=1699). Since it’s still in the prototype phase, we will continue to take all of your feedback into consideration as we head towards an eventual release. We also wanted to answer some of the more common questions that have popped up.

The AliExpress seller who has, in the past, distributed versions similar to the prototype shown, is an AtGames vendor and supply chain partner. We awarded them the contract a year ago through an RFP process in China that involved multiple supply chain partners. In conjunction with them, we have built the test-bed prototype running with our team’s hardware and software. That means that yes, this is fully integrated into the Legends Arcade Family, Legends Universal Firmware, and all of the features of the Legends Arcade Platform.

We have worked with the contractors to develop a lab model for a new line of racing cabinets and are customizing it to fit our ecosystem, making it a true Open and Connected racing arcade like our other Legends Arcade Family machines. What we showed was an in-progress engineering sample and gave an insight into the status and general direction. Over the past year, we have gained valuable insight that will help prepare us for upcoming iterations.

The spreadsheet that was shown and that we have included here in image form is the result of that year-long study and has some notable features not yet demonstrated, including the ability to drive three (3) displays. The current version of the machine is also running the latest Legends Universal Firmware, v5.49, and will continue to be updated in parallel. To answer the other question, the individuals shown in the video were at least six feet tall. We’re designing this to more comfortably fit a much wider height range than similar types of these devices.

In any case, we hope that you appreciate our openness and understand that our best practice “RFP with supply-chain partners” approach is what will allow us to bring the best engineering teams together to make a robust home arcade machine with all of the best features at a price that our community can afford. We will not place a time limit or deadline on the process and will continue to “tinker” as we work with our partner(s) on customization. The Legends Ultimate Racer will be built for long-term enjoyment and become another important piece of our growing Legends Arcade Family.

Thank you all again and please keep the feedback coming. You know we listen.

All run at 1080p 60fps on the ALP and were released on May 19th. They are part of the Zaccaria Deluxe Pinball Tables: Volume 5 and priced at $50 USD for all 10 tables. These tables look very impressive and are a high-end premium set of tables which feature animated characters and special 3D effects.

    • Strike Deluxe – Knock down all the pins in a bowling-themed table.
    • Universe Deluxe – Help Captain Zac save the cosmos.
    • Pool Champion Deluxe – Pot all of the balls in this pool-themed table.
    • House of Diamonds Deluxe – Put all your cards on the line.
    • Robot Deluxe – Bring your mechanical creation to life.
    • Combat Deluxe – Win the battle.
    • Farfalla Deluxe – Find true love.
“Rachael” from the classic Sci-Fi Movie Blade Runner
  • VIBS (“Rachael”) Update – AtGames has created what is known as the Open and Connected Pinball initiative (or OCP). The goal is to allow users to connect their external PC to the ALP to play their Virtual Pinball Games on the ALP. This initiative will be in the form of a new board called the Video Input Backglass Switchboard (or VIBS). You may have heard of it previously by it’s codename the “Rachael” board. The VIBS package retails for $50 USD +$20 shipping/handling (US only). VIBS was released on May 19th and quickly sold out – more will be coming.
