My Arcade’s Galaga Joystick Puts Nostalgia in the Palm of Your Hand

Last Updated on October 24, 2023

My Arcade has announced the Galaga Joystick Player, a portable retro arcade machine that brings the nostalgia of classic gaming to the palm of your hand.

With its responsive joystick and vibrant 3.2″ full-color display, the Galaga Joystick Player delivers an authentic arcade experience that will transport players back to the past. The built-in speaker with adjustable volume faithfully reproduces the iconic sounds of the arcade, making it the perfect way to relive the thrill of battling swarms of relentless aliens and dodging their laser fire.

Galaga is a game that loves a re-release, having already been issued through the Arcade Archives earlier this year Nintendo Switch and PS4.

My Arcade is an exciting line of miniature retro arcade devices, Plug ‘N Play consoles and portable gaming handhelds, which include officially licensed iconic titles from Atari, BANDAI NAMCO, Capcom, Data East, Konami, Taito, and Jaleco. My Arcade brings classics like PAC-MAN, GALAGA, Tetris, Space Invaders, Street Fighter II, Mega Man, and many others to the palm of your hand.

The Galaga Joystick Player includes two fully playable classics, Galaga and Galaxian, and is powered by either 4 AA batteries or a USB-C® cable (not included). This makes it the perfect companion for on-the-go gaming or for adding a touch of retro flair to your home or office.
