E3 2018: My Arcade Details Fun-Sized Micro Player Arcade Cabinets

My Arcade's latest Micro Player Arcade cabinets prove that small packages sometimes equal up to big thrills.


The days of arcades have mostly come and gone; some stalwart champions in the wild still keep to the old ways by running their own arcades or fixing and maintaining arcade cabinets, but by and large, most people get their gaming kicks at home on modern hardware. Fortunately, there is a way to capture some of the arcade magic thanks to the folks at My Arcade. Crystal Dugan, head of marketing for My Arcade, popped by the Shacknews booth at E3 2018 to discuss how the company's latest Micro Player Arcades can bring back the glory of the 1980s and 1990s arcade scene in new desk-friendly coin op-style cabinets.

As can be seen in the video above, the new Micro Player Arcade game cabinets include some of gaming's biggest classic titles, including Dig Dug, Pac-Man, Burgertime, and Galaga. And, of course, the cabinets' size — described as "six inches of awesome" — should be just enough to get the job done without causing any undue discomfort. Of course, those who like a little more size may be interested My Arcade's Data East Mini Player, which is a ten-inch affair that includes 34 different classic Data East titles like Bad Dudes, Caveman Ninja, Karate Champ, and Joe & Mac Returns, a game in one of this author's personal favorite 16-bit series.

My Arcade gaming cabinets and Micro Player Arcade cabinets can be found at a number of leading retailers, and players can find more information about the full suite of My Arcade offerings by heading over to the official My Arcade website.
