It’s a shame that the arcade days are behind us, save for a few dedicated enthusiasts. Luckily, some video game companies realize that sad hole in the market and brought them back in a more modern way. 

One of those companies is Bandai, which packaged 12 classic titles like Pac-Man, Galaga, Xevious, and Dig Dug into this cute little joystick that looks like everyone’s favorite yellow chomper. It even has Pac-Man 256 included, which lets you continue where the first game left off.


To use this little guy, all you have to do is plug it into your TV’s A/C jack and it’s ready to play. You can also store the cords inside if you just want to display it in your living room, as seen in this video.

For only $19.77 on Amazon, we think it’s a steal—not to mention a way to make your house party an instant hit. Snatch it up faster than Pac eats fruit. Buy it here.
