Gamers of the 1980s may remember the social phenomenon that was Pac-Man. This original arcade release from Namco remains as one of the most memorable games in the space of gaming. Recalling back to that day, Numskull Designs teams up with Bandai Namco for the first time in its series of Quarter Arcades exclusives to release a brand new Pac-Man arcade machine.
The Pac-Man character inspired generations of games and Numskull Designs wants to bring him back to the original platform. Nostalgic gamers can now experience the real deal from the comfort of their home, reliving the 1980s all over again.
This official cabinet is a 1/4 scale replica of the original arcade cabinet, with everything from its artwork, button/joystick sizes, and coin-mechanism shrunk down proportionately. It aims to be an authentic arcade experience that can be conveniently played on a desk, or displayed with pride on the shelf.
This is a great choice for those experiencing Pac-Man for the first time, or for those with fond memories of gobbling up ghosts.
