Ooh now, this is exciting and right up my alley. I was king of the arcade shoot ’em-ups back in the day. there wasn’t an arcade that didn’t fear my prowess at a bit of bullet-hell action.

Anyway, Sega has now launched a verticle follow up to its amazing Astro City Mini arcade machine that was released last year, but this time the screen is in in the vertical or Tate orientation so you can play these shoot ’em-up the way that they supposed to be played. See you later MAME, and no more turning an old CRT portable TV on its side to play in my MiSTer FPGA. Well, maybe a bit.

What is the Sega Astro City Mini V?

A follow-up to last year’s Astro City mini, which was a tiny replica of the iconic Japanese console. The last time around it was packed full of the traditional side-scrolling type of arcade titles, the V edition is designed especially for shmups. Woop.

Where to buy the Sega Astro City Mini V

Currently, the Astro City Mini V is only available from the Sega toy store website in Japan. Priced at 19,580 yen – or about $170 you might need to get a Japanese friend to help you with the purchase, or hopefully, it will reach Western shores soon with the demand expected to be high.
