exA-Arcadia is an indie PC-based arcade platform with a planned release in Japan on November 27, 2019 (with a planned worldwide release in late 2019). It's designed as an affordable modern cartridge-based conversion kit in an era of expensive dedicated machines and digital distribution systems (which force operators to "revenue share" titles).
Designed for use as conversion kits for numerous types of JVS-compatible arcade cabinets, it supports numerous arcade configurations (including linked play and support for both 16:9 high-definition LCD screens and 4:3 standard-definition CRT monitors) and swappable cartidges (with support for four cartridge slots, allowing operators to put multiple games for players to choose similar to the Neo Geo MVS).
While an internet connection is not needed, operators will be able to enable certain online-connected services, including support for smartphone companion apps and integrated Twitch streaming. They can also add their own custom advertisements for the system's attract mode.
As the hardware is not developed by a development studio, games developed for the system are third-party and are commonly ports of games for existing home systems. The Japanese version will launch with one game (a port of Aka to Blue), while the worldwide version will launch with four games (ports of Super Hydorah, Infinos Gaiden, Shaolin vs Wutang: Eastern Heroes, and Strania: The Stella Machina).
