Bandai Namco and My Arcade Team Up for Classic Game Mini-Arcade Cabinets and Portables

Bandai Namco and My Arcade have teamed up to produce a new line of collectible table-top arcade machines and portable handhelds.

The initial lineup of mini arcade cabinets will include games like Pac-Man, Galaga, and Dig Dug.

The actual cabinet itself is My Arcade’s design, the Micro Player, which features artwork inspired by the original arcade cabinets. Fans can also expect the players to have full color displays, backlit coin traps, and even a removable joystick for those who prefer directional pad movement.

Here’s a look at each individual arcade cabinet:

There’s also a handheld coming:

Additional games from Bandai Namco’s library will be confirmed at a later date. If you’re at CES this year, you can see a preview of this new collaboration at My Arcade’s CES booth #31578 located in LVCC, South Hall 3.

The aforementioned Micro Player Arcade cabinets and handhelds will be arriving on store shelves in late Spring of this year, with an MSRP set for $35 and up.

    Looks like a Tiny Arcade cabinet. These are more detailed, though.

    I think it’s a neat little combination of displayable knick-knack, and actually playable thing.

    Looking forward to Coleco’s (Holdings) Robotech and Rainbow Brite.

    That little Pac-Man handheld reminds me of Game Boy Micro in all the best ways. Kind of want.

  • Jared Bellow

    I like your avatar, guy.

  • PaRaLLaXTHeTiCS

    Thanks! I like yours too. It reminds me of good times.

  • Audie Bakerson

    What about The Tower of Druaga?

  • Josh

    I saw these in Toys R Us. They’d make nice little novelty gifts. The games seem to work and the pictures are solid.

  • I WANT EVERY SINGLE ONE

  • Stephanie

    Those were from a different company called Basic Fun aka Bridge Direct. These are completely different internals and controls.

  • Still a much better handheld than the Vita.

  • RPGEndBoss

    I used to collect those old tabletop arcade games. Still have some (Tron, Scramble, Popeye, and a semi-working PAc-Man one)

    I’m DEFINITELY getting these for sure. $35 is pretty cheap. Wonder how the quality is though.

  • AppleBerrySandwich

    I have been collecting these mini-arcade games. So fun and well done. Will probably buy all of them. I have Burger Time and Bad Dudes now. Awesome.

  • AppleBerrySandwich

    Games work – look pretty good too.

  • Γεώργιος Αρχαιοκαπηλίδης

    I would gladly buy a mini Galaga.

  • Dave C

    Meh looks like the NES version. Give me a proper real arcade ROM in the correct vertical orientation then I would be interested.
