Numskull Designs have partnered with BANDAI Namco Entertainment with the plan to release a series of one quarter scale full working arcade cabinets with the Pac-Man edition now available on pre-order for £149.99.
The Pac-Man Quarter Size Arcade Cabinet is an official, fully playable, accurate 1/4 scale replica of the original Pac-Man cabinet that runs the original arcade rom via emulation.
Measuring in at 16.92 inches in height by 8.27 inches deep by 6.3 inches in width, the replica arcade unit is a perfect size for any desk or collector’s shelf. The unit features a back-lit marquee, artwork, cabinet shape and control stick and buttons that you would find in the original full size model.
The Quarter Size arcade cabinets will contain a built-in rechargeable battery that will allow you to game for up to 4 hours. You can also power the unit via the supplied Micro USB cable, though you will need to supply your own 5V@1.5A power adapter.
The limited released Collectors Edition will also include a Pac-Main coin. Numskull have stated that the Collectors Edition will be limited to 10,000 units worldwide.
Numskull expect to release 3 other cabinets in 2019 as part of the Quarter Arcades series – Galaga, Ms. Pac-Man and Galaxian.
You can place your pre-order via the Numskull website with the cabinet expected to be available in December 2018.
