Yesterday we got word on the Sega Astro City Mini, and while info continued to drip out over the day, Sega Japan has officially debuted the ⅙ scale replica arcade cab with both its first trailer and a dedicated website.

The video may be in Japanese, but it gives both a full look at the cab itself and the first 10 of its promised 36 games. Even with some of these being available on the eShop or any number of Sega compilations from over the years, there’s still something appealing about the idea of having this on your desk or among your collection.

As for the Astro City Mini website, it presents the same info from the video while also offering some additional insight and dedicated shots of the replica itself. You’ll also find pages for each of the (currently revealed) games, and a look at the accompanying Astro City Mini Control Pad, perfect for multiplayer when you’re hooked up to a TV.

The Sega Astro City Mini will release in Japan this December, at a price of 12,800 yen (about $120), while the Control Pad will sell for 2,780 yen (about $25). Be on the lookout for further info, such as the rest of the included games and a potential Western release, in the future.
