This isn’t just a mini-replica in looks, but also in design as you get a fully-functioning arcade cabinet to play games on. The Astro City Mini has a built-in 480 x 800 LCD screen, an HDMI-out port, a headphone jack, and two USB-A ports that you can plug a controller into in case you don’t feel like using the joystick and action buttons, although these are hard to come by and go for a high price on eBay. As for the games, you’ll get 36 great games and Altered Beast installed on the unit:

  • Alex Kidd: The Lost Stars
  • Alien Syndrome
  • Alien Storm
  • Altered Beast
  • Arabian Fight

It’s worth noting that the Astro City Mini V, another 1/6 scale replica is also on sale for Black Friday at $110 (normally $160).

This one has similar features to the Astro City Mini, but it has a vertically orientated screen and 23 pre-installed games like Moon Cresta, Zaxxon, Super Zaxxon, Terra Cresta, and Sonic Wings that takes advantage of this format to deliver some old-school arcade shoot-’em-up action.
