The worst part about going to the arcade as a kid was having to leave the games behind… But that’s not the case anymore!
My Arcade has released the Street Fighter II: Champion Edition Micro Player, a replica of the original Street Fighter game that’s a 1:10-scale replica of the original ‘90s arcade cabinet, standing at 7 inches tall. Fans can relive the golden days of coin-op gaming, one mini “hadouken!” combo at a time.
The Micro Player retains all of the key features of its parent cabinet: It sports the iconic, six-button layout in red, white, and blue along with a fighter stick and mechanical switches for extra click-clacking satisfaction. The machine’s full-color, 3-inch backlit marquee, and illuminated coin trap top off the nostalgia. Fans can duke it out against AI fighters and dust off their best combo moves, or compete head-to-head with another Micro Player user, courtesy of My Arcade’s CO-VS technology! The cabinet comes with a cable for linking to another device.
Our Micro Player™for STREET FIGHTER 2 Champion Edition is here! Connect two of the same CO/VS™ enabled consoles and you can co-operate or go head to head with a friend. 6” (1.8m) Cable included with all CO/VS™ enabled devices. #streetfighter #capcom #minaturearcade pic.twitter.com/GRJnYARKQ1

The Street Fighter II: Champion Edition Micro Player features artwork inspired by the original gaming cabinet, from its marbled base to its tiny picture portraits of the 12 Street Fighter characters, including Ryu, Chun-Li, Ken, Zangief, Blanka, and more. It also has a built-in headphone jack, so fans can tune in and totally lose themselves in the retro gaming experience! Better yet, you can’t hear anyone telling you that you have to stop playing (take that, mom).
