Since Nintendo released the NES and SNES mini, various gaming companies have released their own mini retro consoles, including the likes of Sony and Sega with the PlayStation Classic and the Sega Genesis Mini. Now, Sega announced another device, but this time it’s a mini arcade machine instead of a classic console!

Sega Toys recently announced that it will release the Astro City Mini this December. The Astro City Mini is a 1/6 scale version of the 90s arcade fixture, the white-bodies Astro City. The mini isn’t just for decoration though as Astro City Mini is a fully functional arcade machine complete with 36 pre-loaded retro games.

Alongside the Astro City Mini machine, Sega Toys will also release an “Astro City Mini Amusement Center Style Kit” as well as a mini control pad.
