New York Comic Con decided to go nostalgic for this year's event by selling Pac-Man and Street Fighter arcade tables.
As NYCC 2019 comes to a fateful close, we can take a look at some of the highlights. With guest appearances, like Ryan Reynolds and the Birds of Prey cast, and panels showcasing upcoming games, such as the highly anticipated John Wick Hex, NYCC was a fun and exciting event this year. While many different cosplays and toys (looking at you The Last of Us II Ellie statue) were both jawdropping and unforgettable, there remain two items in particular that fans were left gawping at - Pac-Man and Street Fighter arcade tables.
According to the retailer's site: "Pac-Man is back, man! Outrun the ghosts and collect Pac-Dots while navigating Pac-Man through the maze. Complete each stage by collecting all of the dots and avoiding the tricky ghosts."
Though it'll set you back $500, the Pac-Man tabletop arcade might be worth it for dedicate fans. It has a wide variety of games included, from Pac-Mania and Pac & Pal to Galaga and Dig Dug. The arcade table is currently being displayed at NYCC. Playing with friends (or Comic-Con acquaintances) is a thrilling experience and now you can play your hardest with the new arcade table.
There is also a Street Fighter arcade table available at NYCC if Pac-Man isn't quite your style. Despite some negative attention, gleaned by the Street Fighter tournament winner losing $45,000 to Japan's Pro Gamer Laws, the franchise is still as popular as ever. Like its Pac-Man counterpart, the Street Fighter rendition also sports an array of titles, such as Final Fight, Darkstalkers, 1944: Loop Master, Super Street Fighter II, and more.
Though arcade games are no longer as popular as they used to be, they're still seen as an important part of gaming history and many fondly remember them.
Thankfully, you can now get your hands on these two incredible nostalgic relics.
