Classic Ads: WWF SuperStars
WWF Superstars is an arcade game manufactured by Technōs Japan and released in 1989. The game features some of the signature moves and trademark mannerisms of the wrestlers in the game. There are also cut scenes featuring Ted DiBiase, André the Giant and Virgil. Mean Gene Okerlund and Miss Elizabeth make appearances as well. Before the first match, the player’s chosen team enters the arena via the “ring cart” seen in WrestleMania III and WrestleMania VI. [Wiki]

Nestled away in the Dundee Township Historic district sits, though not as old as the buildings that surround it, a reminder of the glory days of seemingly distant past. An arcade. A real arcade.
We thought the Galloping Ghost was fantastic and apparently the fine folks at Underground Retrocade felt the same way – citing them with the inspiration and a similar business model. It was on this quiet night the lights of the machines help guide us through the two large aisles of cabinets. Here you would see each nook and cranny having been lovingly maintained and cleaned. Some of which I was surprised on how well kept the machines were even after several decades of use.
It’s something that is beautiful in its enthusiasm and simplicity. It tries to be a true arcade of yester-year, and it does it in a really great way.
