"We are honored to work with Bandai Namco Entertainment to bring such iconic titles to a new generation of gamers," says Crystal Dugan, marketing manager, MyArcade. "‘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. “

The licensed table top arcade machines and handheld devices will be available at retail in the spring.  A preview of the collection will also be on display at My Arcade's CES booth (#31578).
