Mega Man 1 & Mega Man 2 Mini Cabinet Coming Later This Year
Arcade1Up, makers of the officially-licensed Mega Man plug and play, are reportedly developing a mini tabletop arcade machine featuring,Mega Man 1 and Mega Man 2. The device is based on the classic Coleco arcade form factor and features a full LCD display, a rechargeable lithium battery, and Mega Man 2-inspired wrap around art.
A prototype version of the device was featured at CES 2020. The screenshot on the packaging is from Mega Man X3 -- Crush Crawfish's stage, to be exact. Oops! Hopefully this will be fixed for the consumer version of the device. Makes me wonder if that was meant for a totally different, unannounced Mega Man X product. Hmm..
Regardless, both the mini arcade and the plug and play dongle/controller are due to launch at an unannounced date later this year.
