Numskull Reveals A New Quarter Arcades Cabinet For Bubble Bobble

Numskull has revealed a new addition to their Quarter Arcades mini cabinet line with the original Bubble Bobble cabinet. This is a replica of the original arcade cabinet that you would have found back when TAITO first released it, but at a 1/6 scale of the original. It's a pretty awesome replica in time for the game's 35th anniversary, as it includes a copy of the original arcade version (not the NES version) for you to try and become the greatest champion that ever played it. You can read more about the cabinet below as it is currently on sale for $180.
