Designers and purveyors of some very cool retro video game gear, the folks at 8Bitdo Tech HK LTD. have a talent for updating the design and technology of classic gaming accessories – especially those originally introduced by Nintendo in the 80s and 90s. And that is reflected in their company slogan: Everything Old is New Again. Their latest project takes a step even further backward into the history of gaming to the days before video game consoles and into the world of arcade machines.

Teased on their Facebook and in a display case at their booth at the Gamescom trade fair in Cologne, Germany, this is a prototype version of their newest upcoming product: the Desktop Arcade Joy Stick. A beautiful melding of old-school arcade tech and mid-century design – evident in the seamless sweeping wood exterior – this miniature gaming cabinet is like the grownup version of the arcade machines we loved as a kid. And, if the still of Street Fighter on the screen is any indication, it will be able to run some of our favorite games, as well. [Purchase]
