New Premium Arcade Unit iiRcade Has Launched On Kickstarter

by ZeeshanN

Check out this dedicated Arcade unit is something gamers dream of. There have been various options in the past on how to go about this including selections from Arcade 1Up or building your own. These options are limited to a few onboard games and the other can expect some serious know-how depending on how in-depth you are looking to go. But a new alternative has just been revealed on Kickstarter known as iiRcade.

iiRcade is expecting to bring HQ arcade-style gaming to the volumes with a number of excellent features including pre-installed games and the capacity to buy more through a dedicated website for prices ranging from $2.99 to $14.99. As of the launch of the Kickstarter, more than 170 games have been licensed to be available on the iiRcade arcade including the mighty Double Dragon! Alongside retro classics, the iiRcade hopes to be a home for a number of new games as well.

“The day has finally arrived, and we couldn’t be more excited. We want to thank gamers who have been supporting us and following us over the past few months and we hope everyone is as excited as we are about our amazing line up of games, including Dragon’s Lair, pre-loaded.”
