It is a mini version of TAITO's "EGRET II" game console, and has a screen that can be rotated to match the game title, multiple dedicated controllers, and other features that make it different from other game consoles, and it is attracting a great deal of attention.

We're looking for names for our mascot character!
TAITO ARCADE SELECTION " is a brand that plans, develops and releases arcade game products from a unique perspective.
Most of you are probably already following the official TAITO ARCADE SELECTION Twitter account (@TaitoASelection), which provides information on the EGRET II mini.
Did you know that the iconic character on the account doesn't actually have a name yet?
It's a cute character, and it' s official, but it doesn't have a name... Poor thing! You think so? If you think so, why don't you become a godparent?
The "Please become a godparent of this child" campaign is now open for the "TAITO ARCADE SELECTION" official mascot character! The campaign is now open!
If your name is chosen, it will appear in the staff roll of "EGRET II mini"! This is a tremendous joy!
I would love to apply, but I know it's hard to think without any information, so here is my official profile.
- No name...yet.
- The game will go into operation on June 4, 2021.
- This robot was developed based on Chuck'n, the main character of Taito's first mascot, "Chack'n Pop" in 1983.
- The joystick on its head is replaceable.
The pink ball joystick can move in 8 directions, the red ball in 4 directions, and the black ball in 4 directions. The red ball allows movement in four directions, while the black ball allows movement in two directions.
It can be replaced with various other controllers such as handles, paddles, trackballs, and gun controllers.
Can you replace the joystick on the head....
I feel like I've got it backwards and confusing with the profile, but come up with a good name and be a godfather!
