Remember a time when you played PAC-MAN as a kid but always wanted the experience of having one at home but never had the money or space? Well now is that time!
It is totally BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment official, fully playable, highly collectible (limited) 1/4 scale replica stays true to the original arcade cabinet, with everything from its artwork, button/joystick sizes, and coin-mechanism shrunk down proportionately, so you get an authentic arcade experience that can be conveniently played on a desk, or displayed with pride on your shelf.
We love the idea of having a series of scaled replicas that are true form to the original cab and having them official is key for us. A stamp of approval. There are 3 other machines already teased in the release today too so even though PAC-MAN is the one you can preorder I am getting excited for the others already! These are Galaga, Ms PAC-MAN and Galaxian.
For PAC-MAN itself - here is the teaser video showing PAC-MAN in a ¼ Scale Arcade Cabinet - it in all it's glory:
We understand there will also be a further video coming over from the Numskull Designs team soon - when this is available it will also be on our channel - so watch out for that.
