My Arcade has announced that it is bringing TAITO Corporation’s Space Invaders to its collectible line of Micro Players, which features the original arcade version of the iconic game with authentic graphics and gameplay in a miniature arcade cabinet.
“Space Invaders is a legendary title that forever changed the public perception of video games and their role in entertainment. It’s with great pride that we announce this addition to our line of collectibles,” says Amir Navid, Creative Director, My Arcade. “Our Space Invaders Micro Player pays homage to the pioneering creativity of the original game cabinet with its reflected gameplay and layered illuminated backdrops. Authentic details are essential to making a worthy collectible and to fully evoke the nostalgia of the original arcades they were modeled after, and we hope new and old fans alike will appreciate our scaled-down version of this wonderful game.”
Space Invaders is set to launch later this year, priced $39.99.
