Arcades are mostly a thing of memory, but the love for arcade culture and cabinetry lives on. Atari and New Wave Toys joined forces to make your arcade dreams live on, only at a much smaller and more convenient size.
The Replicades are 12-inch tall, fully-functioning arcade cabinet recreations made of wood and metal. The first Replicade took arcade classic Centipede and shrunk it down to 1/6th its size, and it’s all kinds of adorable.
The Replicade is available as part of a newly-launched Kickstarter campaign and features a 3.5-inch vertical, backlit LCD screen with 4:3 aspect ratio, a rechargeable battery, and a “Replicade high-performance chipset,” which New Wave Toys promises gives the cabinets “smooth, lag-free gameplay.”
