Arcade1Up, Coleco Team for Mini Arcade Games

The machines launched on Kickstarter in 2018. Now, they’re reaching a wider audience.

A Kickstarter campaign was launched two years ago to create new Mini Arcade machines inspired by the ‘80s. Now, those machines are getting a wider reach, according to Toy Book.

Coleco has partnered with Arcade1Up to create new Mini Arcade games to sell nationwide.

“The design of the Coleco Mini Arcade lends itself to customization in controller layout and internal hardware,” says  Chris Cardillo, partner, Coleco. “This means gaming opportunities are infinite – only limited by the scope of the designers. It is going to be interesting to see what Arcade1Up does with the Coleco Mini Arcade lineup, I am sure fans will be just as excited as I am.”

New machines were set to launch this year but are now delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
