New Line of Mini Arcade Machines are Exact 12-Inch Replicas | Gaming News
Current and planned cabinets include Centipede, Tempest and Street Fighter II.
Starting with RepliCade X Centipede and RepliCade X Tempest, these replicas are officially licensed, fully-playable, 1/6 scale versions of the original cabinets. More are to come, including Street Fighter II: Champion Edition. Each cabinet comes with specific features to make it look and feel as similar to its larger design as possible.
RepliCade X Centipede, which is officially launching today, features a tiny trak-ball to control the game just like it was back in the 80’s, comes with super small arcade tokens, a 3.5” vertically oriented color screen and more. It does carry a hefty price tag of $160 US, so arcade fans might want to start saving up their quarters now. It is available to purchase on New Wave Toys’ website, and is coming soon to Amazon, Walmart and Best Buy.
Though only three RepliCade cabinets have been announced, New Wave Toys’ website shows seven more distinct cabinet outlines, suggesting there will likely be 10 of these licensed mini cabinets in total.
