#QuarterArcades 26th June 2019:

Numskull Designs is incredibly proud to team up with BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment for the second instalment in its Quarter Arcades range! 

One of the world’s most recognisable, innovative shooters of all time goes back to where it all began with one of the most authentic versions of the original arcade game to date. It’s easy to see why Galaga is one of the most commercially successful arcade games from the 80s - its inspiration can still be felt across gaming today, more than 30 years later. Now you can experience the real deal from the comfort of your home!

This official, fully playable, highly collectable ¼ scale replica stays true to the original arcade cabinet, with everything from its artwork, buttons, and joystick to its wire mesh air vents and screws exact replicas of the arcade unit – albeit at quarter the size, making it ideal to play or display with pride on your desk or shelf.

Whether you’re a life-long Galaga fan or experiencing it for the very first time, this is the most authentic, playable collectable miniature replica available on the market!

-          Official Bandai Namco Entertainment product – ¼ scale playable replica of the original 1980s Galaga arcade cabinet

-          Fully playable cabinet – plays the original arcade ROM on a bespoke emulator

-          Quarter Arcades #2: second in the series – collect them all to build your own miniature arcade

-          Realistic replica – everything from the artwork, shape, wooden shell, buttons, and more are precise replicas

-          High quality – made for durability, playability, and portability

-          Play your way – internal dip switch settings let you play however you want, whenever you want

-          Portable and displayable – rechargeable internal battery lets you take it on the go, or display at home in attract mode

 

Galaga will stand proudly alongside our first release in the range, PAC-MAN, as well as two more previously announced cabinets launching later this year:

#1 - PAC-MAN out now #2 Galaga September 2019 #3 - Ms. PAC-MAN November 2019 #4 Galaxian -  November 2019
