MyArcade Shows Off Two New Retro Gaming Systems at CES 2020

From a new Street Fighter 2 mini-arcade cabinet to a handheld SNES device, it's clear retro's going nowhere anytime soon.

MyArcade announced two brand-new additions to its lineup of mini-arcade cabinets and retro gaming devices as part of its CES 2020 showcase.

The first is a partnership with Capcom to bring consumers the Street Fighter 2: Champion Edition Micro Player. Like all MyArcade Micro Players, the Street Fighter 2 Micro Player is built as a 1/10th scale of the original arcade cabinet. It stands 7" high with a 3.5" screen. It will also feature packaging and cabinet artwork inspired by the original arcade classic.

Because it's better to fight Bison (the character, not the cattle) with a friend, the Street Fighter 2 Micro Player includes MyArcade's CO-VS technology that lets two Micro Players connect for fierce two-player competition. Street Fighter 2: Champion Edition Micro Player will retail for $49.99. And FYI: batteries are not included.

The second new MyArcade device is the Super Retro Champ Console. It is a follow-up to the original Retro Champ and, as the name suggests, supports SNES, Super Famicom, and Sega Genesis and Mega Drive cartridges. You feast your eyes upon it in the picture at the top of this article.

What's different about this retro console compared to the numerous other retro consoles that do the same thing is the Super Retro Champ is handheld. It boasts a 7" screen, a rechargeable battery promising up to five hours of play, two wireless gamepads, and an HDMI cable should you wish to play in tabletop or TV mode. It will retail for $109.99.

As of now, neither of these devices has a release date, but stay tuned to GameSkinny for more MyArcade and retro gaming news as it develops.

You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
