About Karate Champ arcade game for hire
The original player vs player fighting game

Manufactured by DATA EAST in 1984

Forget Street Fighter - this is where it all began, two karatekas' facing off against each other for the hand of a fair maiden.

Pixelated it may be compared to the later games that came, this one's unique in that you have two joysticks per player. There's a guy in white, a guy in red, both have the same moves and must score two full points before the clock runs out to advance to the next round. You can play against each other or against the machine. Winner stays on style. After each 2 rounds there's a bonus round including block breaking and something akin to dodge-the-bull.

Here's an example of what Karate Champ looks like

Cabinet image shown may not be the same as the one you would hire

We make every effort to own games in their most known original format, DATA EAST made different versions depending on where in the world it was produced.

In this case, the picture of the Karate Champ machine shown is one of many variants of the cabinet, the game delivered may look different but will have the correct game. We have used a stock photo to keep the visual theme of our website consistent.

What does 'van spaces' mean?

For any hire upto 10-12 games we use our own transport, there are size and weight restrictions of how much we can legally put on to bring to you. Games like Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Donkey Kong and many others from that era we discovered are all roughly the same size so we call them a 'standard size' game - we can put 12 of these standard sized games on one of the vans we use. We have some bigger games like SEGA Rally Championship Two Player which each half takes up the space of 2 standard sized games and with two halves to play together it takes 4 in total so we calculate how many standard sized machines a game like that takes up - that's what van spaces are.

When you ask us for a quote, we will always quote based on standard sized games, if you'd like specific larger games, please mention this in your enquiry.
