With the latest tech and a huge selection of your favourite games, this arcade console will bring back memories and deliver endless hours of fun for the whole family!

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.

Why is the 18s-A9 the King of retro Arcade gaming consoles?

Not only can it compete with large arcade cabinets, but stores away in your cupboard or drawer when finished.
The King of Arcade comes in the 18s 4,500 or EX2 WiFi 8,000 titles model and emulates the arcade classics along with many consoles including N64, Dreamcast, PS1, Genesis, Gameboy platforms and more. Both units use the s812 A9 chipset which leads the market in performance.

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.

Having 2 split consoles, instead of 1 bulky unit ensures you can play comfortably and however you chose – and when needed, you can connect the second console or up-to 2 compatible gamepad controllers. The suction cups allow the console to be mounted to most hard surfaces or you can sit back and play casually. The console button order can be adjusted and the gamepad controllers set up quickly and easily as player1,2,3 or 4 giving you total control over how you play.

Customers love it! And here's a few reasons why you will too

  • 2 Separate consoles
  • Sort games by category or use the search feature
  • Tag/ untag your favourite games - showing them at top of list with a ♥
  • Adjust aspect ratio with 1 button - removes screen stretching on wide screens

Awesome unit!

After endless online searching for a legitimate retro arcade machine, there seemed to be an ocean of scams and misleading information on these types of consoles, I stumbled upon electro arcade and decided to order from them as they seemed to have the best information on there products and they were based locally in Melbourne. I ordered on the weekend and it arrived 3 days later and I couldn’t be happier, I thought it was getting the 4500 game model and I ended up getting the wifi 8000 game model upgrade for free!, my kids and I have been playing it flat out. Would recommend and order from these guys again

Delivery was very quick over to NZ and Paul followed up promptly to make sure everything was ok with unit, which it was, been having an absolute blast playing all the classics from my youth , games work well and just as I remember, only problem now is getting my kids off it so I can play it , stoked as!

Great value console delivered super fast

It was time for an upgrade from my old Digital Hype console and I saw the King of Split at Electro Arcade. It's a well built console with a ton of games on it. Paul from Electro Arcade was super helpful with the ordering process and consolidated shipping across a couple of orders for me. Top console and great service.
