Meet the premium XL steel case King of Retro Arcade game consoles.
It's solid and provides more shoulder room and space for 2 player action.
Mario & BTTF decks are on Pre-Order with an upgraded gameboard arriving Mid December.
Custom artwork, quality joysticks, LED arrows, and more...
The 2023 model comes with 3 USB ports for 2 gamepads and the ability to be used as a PC or PS3 fightstick.
The powder-coated steel case has a low profile, yet the base steps in creating an attractive and very sturdy case. The extra-wide deck measures 76cm by 25cm deep and 3.5cm tall. The XL deck is 12cm wider than the standard Pandora Box or Rasberry PI fight stick. It's also deeper and sits lower. At 6.5kg this bad boy weighs 2.2kg more.
Given a 4UP arcade machine is 89cm wide the XL retro arcade games console should give you a very comfortable 2-player experience.
The steel case will ensure minimal movement when things get heated delivering an arcade experience at home or at friends.
Street Fighter XL Deck quick view
The XL still maintains a small footprint for what it delivers with quality components you can expect from Electro Arcade machines. The leading Pandoras gameboard delivers a crazy amount of arcade and console games that play well. Keep in mind not every single game will play to perfection, but you won't be left disappointed.
The XL deck is custom-made to our requirements and sourced directly from the manufacturer. Stock is housed in Melbourne Australia and shipped directly to you, so no middle man, smoke or mirrors or inflated prices. We back and support what we sell and have all required spares on hand.
The XL deck delivers a great package including custom limited edition faceplate artwork, these units are extremely appealing.
With the latest tech and a huge selection of your favourite games, this Retro Arcade Games Console will bring back memories and deliver endless hours of fun for the whole family!
Like our other retro consoles, all required cables are provided. 1 cable to your TV, the other to power and if you can select a game quick enough you could be playing in under a minute.
The Retrogaming package comes complete with everything needed. Spare buttons are also included - BYO TV :-)
With many claiming a fast octa-core(8-core), the king runs the latest board with a truly fast 12 core, meaning no gameplay lag or sound chopping.
The 720P display works a treat on small and LARGE 75+ widescreen TVs. Beware of anyone stating a Pandora's box can do 1080P.
When comparing, be sure to check the processor speed and features, not the game count.
Curious how well games play on the King of retro Arcade games console?
Third-Party Gaming Experience Review
Our EX2 is the newer version of the 18s and runs the same chipset, so while it will vary, you can expect the same performance with some enhancements.
Not only can The King of Arcade compete with large arcade cabinets, but stores away in your cupboard or drawer when finished.
The King of Arcade comes with 10,000 titles and WiFi so you can access the online Game store. It emulates the arcade classics along with many consoles including N64, Dreamcast, PS1, PSP, Genesis, Gameboy platforms and more. The King uses the latest EX2 board and s812 A9 chipset which leads the Pandora box market in performance and reliability.
Where many claim and fail the King of Arcade plays the arcade classics along with most newer games respectfully. This includes titles such as Mario Kart 64, Initial D, Tekken, Mortal Kombat and Metal Slug to name a few.
The console button order can be adjusted and the gamepad controllers are set up quickly and easily as player1,2,3 or 4 giving you total control over how you play.
Upgraded joystick and buttons
We've done away with some of the glam by replacing the LED buttons for a better feel and quality solid button. Joysticks have been upgraded to good clones ensuring all skill levels have a great experience.
The acrylic top lights up using an internal LED strip. We've upgraded the wiring to include a separate switch so you decide when you want the cycling light effects on or off.
Our King consoles are patched with updated software in-house. The result is faster and smoother gameplay along with extra features.
4:3 Aspect mode Switch
Standard image stretching experienced on Pandora boxes when played on widescreen displays is removed. In addition, you can tweak the display aspect ratio to your liking by pressing P1 START & E button to cycle through 3 Aspect ratios.
Not only is the face covered in a clear plastic liner, but we've taken it further and introduced clear plastic over all our buttons. No more marks on buttons during assembly or transport.
Direct from Manufacturer
Our constant drive to deliver a better quality product has led us to the Manufacturer of these units. While not an easy task, from button quality, to print finish, clean acrylic finish and assembly the final product is superior to what we've sampled from other Assembly factories. We couldn't be happier and so will you when you see the finish of these units.

The King of Retro Arcade game consoles - STEEL XL DECK - 10000 titles
None better. Stand behind everything. Responsive and always willing to answer any questions. Honest and fair pricing. If you’re outside of Australia, order from them anyway . You will be left with no regrets!
I knew that this would be good but I had no idea just how good!
I'd been looking at various products; everything from an Arcade1Up cabinet to the Capcom Home Arcade, however when I came across ElectroArcade and their offering it became a no brainer!
The system itself is stunning. Well put together, weighty, great ergonomics and design (I purchased the version with the StreetFighter artwork) and upgraded the joysticks and the whole thing plays like a dream.
The 10,000+ games represent the best of old skool gaming, and whilst the interface is a little clunky at first, once you master the search functionality it's a breeze.
My advice? Don't think twice.
Set up was easy.
Endless games to choose from!
After some searching on the electroarcade site I found out how to bring up the menu and get into the online store for more games! Connecting to the wifi was simple too. Looking forward to downloading some more games, the team are so helpful and will offer information and advice.
Best Christmas/Early Birthday present to me and family ever.
Looking forward to future game nights on this.
