GEEK PICK OK KO Lets Be Heroes DVD and My Arcade Retro

first_imgIf you don’t know My Arcade Retro, they’re doing the Lord’s work making tiny little fully functioning arcade cabinets featuring classic games. The joystick and buttons for A,B, Start, and Reset all work and feel pretty sturdy and comfortable to play with given their shrunken size. The only thing that’s fake is the coin slot. These games are all free. However, you do need to press that slot to turn the machine on. On the back is the speaker, the headphone jack, and a panel for swapping out batteries or charging over micro-USB.Typically a My Arcade Retro cabinet will be covered with art from whatever games are included, like Dig Dug or Pac-Man. But unsurprisingly this OK K.O. cabinet is adorned with art from the show. Given the Scott Pilgrim-levels of inspiration the cartoon takes from video games though it all looks very right. It’s just good art, too. It totally gets you pumped to take on these retro gems, in this case eight Data East hits: Bad Dudes, BreakThru, Caveman Ninja, Heavy Barrel, Side Pocket, B Wings, Karate Champ, and Burger Time.This special OK K.O. arcade cabinet is only available to folks like us. But there are plenty of other My Arcade Retro cabinets out there for the general public. And remember that the DVD featuring selections from the first season of OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes (18 episodes and a 22-minutes special) releases July 17. It should come as no surprise that recent Cartoon Network show OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes is absolutely our jam here on Geek.com. Just look at what it is: a gorgeously animated cartoon inspired by classic anime and video games from some of the minds behind Steven Universe starring an incredible cast including Ashly Burch, Courtenay Taylor, and Ian Jones-Quartey.If you missed out on OK K.O. when it first aired, or you just want to keep it for posterity, you can pick up select episodes from the first season on physical media July 17.
