Pac-Man developed his insatiable appetite for dots 40 years ago. Remarkably, he’s still hungry to this day and generations of fans have indulged Pac-Man ever since. There have been plenty of variations on Pac-Man gameplay–some good, others quite bad. The original version still holds up today, and if you’re looking for a neat new way to recapture nostalgia for the iconic game, a 40th anniversary arcade cabinet from Bandai Namco and Numskull Designs is up for pre-order.

The 40th Anniversary Quarter Arcade costs $120 and comes in at 16.92 x 8.27 x 6.3 inches, which makes it closer to the dimensions of a countertop machine. Made with a replica wooden shell and complete with a light-up marquee, all of the original buttons, and joystick, the cabinet has a vibrant design that really stands out. It also has a 40th anniversary logo on the front. The Pac-Man 40th Anniversary Quarter Arcade is available to pre-order from the Geek Store, with orders expected to ship in July.
