Beginning this fall, kids ages 4-8 can get in on the arcade action in a new way with Arcade1Up Jr.

Following the release of its Infinity Game Table at Best Buy this week, Tastemakers’ Arcade1Up revealed a deal with Spin Master Entertainment for a 3-foot retro arcade cabinet inspired by the famous pups from Adventure Bay. Arcade1Up Jr. PAW Patrol hits retail on Nov. 15 and features three games: PAW Patrol Chase is in a Race, PAW Patrol Off Duty, and PAW Patrol Pups on the Go. Multiple levels make the games accessible and fun for kids of many ages and skill levels.

“We are very excited to add Arcade1Up Jr. to our at-home entertainment collection,” says Tastemakers Founder and CEO Scott Bachrach. “It’s a nostalgic experience for fans of retro gaming to introduce to the next generation.”

The PAW Patrol cabinet will be preceded by the release of the Arcade1Up Jr. Pac-Man cabinet on Oct. 15. The machine includes Pac-Man, Dig Dug, and Galaga packed into a cabinet with a kid-friendly, chunky form factor.
