TORRANCE, CA - Jan. 9, 2018 - Retro gaming brand, My Arcade has acquired license from legendary video game developer, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment, to release a new range of collectible table-top arcade machines and portable handhelds. A preview of the collaborative efforts will be on display at My Arcade's CES booth #31578 located in LVCC, South Hall 3.

The initial lineup will feature gaming's first icon, PAC-MAN, and other classics such as Galaga and Dig Dug. The Micro Player™ arcades will feature artwork inspired by the original cabinets, large full-colored screens, backlit coin traps, plus a removable joystick for those who prefer to use a directional pad to play. Additional titles from BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment's beloved library and more information on upcoming portable handhelds will be released at a later date.

"We are honored to work with BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment to bring such iconic titles to a new generation of gamers," remarked Crystal Dugan, My Arcade's Marketing Manager. "PAC-MAN, Dig Dug, and Galaga are nostalgic titles for myself and everyone who grew up playing them at their local arcade. They are such an important part of gaming history and we are thrilled to bring these back in a unique way to a whole new audience."
