Supreme was making a pretty successful business of selling plain logo t-shirts that wealthy teenagers would fight each other at 5am to obtain, but it quickly realised that it could put its branding on pretty much anything and get a bite. Nunchucks, fire extinguishers, dog bowls: you name it, Supreme has probably Supremed it. The latest example? A Supreme Mortal Kombat machine, obviously. Part of the streetwear brand's Fall/Winter 2020 collection, the cabinet is really just a rebrand of an already existing cab sold by Arcade1Up. You can play Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat II and Mortal Kombat 3 on the 17in colour LCD display, and it comes with two sets of buttons and a pair of joysticks for two-player fighting.
But the big draw here, of course, is the red Supreme paint job and multiple logos, one of which sits on an included riser, and another on Raiden's outfit. Presumably he didn't have to queue for it. No word on price yet, but we wouldn't be surprised if it's more than the $360 you can currently pick up the standard cabinet for. Supreme has been known to release some pretty weird things — branded Oreo cookies, bricks, lawn chairs. The list goes on.
But this latest drop? This one takes the cake. While previewing its latest look book for the fall/winter 2020 season, the OG skateboarding brand showed off some really sleek looks. It was filled with the normal stuff — you know, your jackets and coats and other things of that nature. But as you keep scrolling, you stumble upon something completely and utterly ridiculous. They have a genuine Mortal Kombat arcade cabinet. Seriously. Like one of those things that you might see in the arcade at the mall. It's wild. And it has three different Mortal Kombat games. Again, Supreme has dropped some pretty wild things over the years. Their accessory shock drops always get people talking. Nah, this one is wild. But it's also insanely dope. This is something you could definitely throw in the crib and play for hours. There's no price for this just yet. Just know that it won't come easy and it won't come cheap.
