  • Sonic is a Cop in a Rare "Sonic the Hedgehog" Arcade Game That Will Soon Be Playable

    "Waku Waku Sonic Patrol Car" arcade board secured

That makes the recent acquisition of an original arcade board something truly special, because now it will finally be playable as a ROM along with the next MAME release. More after the jump.
