Numskull’s quarter-scale Bubble Bobble machine is now available

Arcade (and console) classic Bubble Bobble is the latest addition to Numskull’s awesome line of quarter-scale arcade cabinets.

Your own arcade

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you likely know that small-scale arcade cabs have been pretty hot in recent years. There are 3/4 scale units, super-tiny handheld and pocket ones, and a 1/4 scale series from Numskull.

That last form-factor has now gotten its latest addition, as Bubble Bobble has just arrived this month. As usual, the offering is a full replica of the original arcade machine, but in quarter-scale.

Take a look:

Quarter Arcades, are quarter-scale replicas of popular arcade cabinets from gaming history. Experience the original retro arcade machines but at quarter the size. Made with real premium quality wood and metal materials these are the most authentic, highest quality miniatures on the market.


The above machine includes the arcade version of the game too, so no worries about it being the 8bit title. As for the emulation, it’s “bespoke” according to Numskull, so I imagine it should be solid. Also included is a set of internal dip switches. The manufacturer says these will allow gamers to play “however you want, whenever you want”.

Eighth in the series, Bubble Bobble is priced at $179.99 USD, and is available through several retail outlets. Click here for more info.
