[HOT] : Find the thrill of the arcade rooms with the Sega Astro City Mini
Those who knew arcades in the 90s are nostalgic for these bygone days. However, the retrogaming wave of recent years allows them to relive these sensations… and to reach new players too! Sega has been one of the most important suppliers of arcade machines, notably in Japan with the Astro City. A miniature version has recently become available in France.
