My Arcade Celebrates Pac-Man's 40th With Golden Micro Player

My Arcade revealed this week they're releasing a 40th Anniversary Pac-Man arcade micro player that's been gold-plated. You can see the design below as the company has partnered with Bandai Namco to bring the classic arcade game back into their collection to make this gold-clad version of the popular micro player line. This particular one features lenticular "moving" labels on the cabinet sides and an arcade version of the original game. This product will be made available sometime in the summer for $40. You can read more about the addition of the player below and all of the features, as well as get a glimpse of the packaging that will be going out this summer.
