The super cute Taito EGRET II mini retro arcade console, which was originally revealed in December by Strictly Limited Games and ININ Games, is now available to reserve.
There will be only 5,000 units of the Taito EGRET II mini – Limited Blue Edition available to purchase ($229.99 standard edition reservations here), and some of those will be destined for the more deluxe $369.99 Arcade Cabinet and $499.99 Game Center Editions by Strictly Limited Games (which you can see, here).
Either way, players will get a console with 5-inch 4:3 rotating screen, adjustable 4 and 8-way joystick with six buttons, HDMI output and SD card slot, and of course 40 classic Taito arcade titles (with additional titles included with trackball/paddle controller option).
So needless to say for those interested, even though there’s no release dates quite yet, don’t dilly-dally in reserving yours. Check out the new trailer and product shots, along with additional info for the Taito EGRET II mini below.
