If you can’t get enough of Angry Birds, you might want to check it out on an arcade machine. That’s right. Dream Arcades, the world’s largest manufacturer and distributor of arcade machines for the home, just announced that you will be able to play Angry Birds and Cut the Rope — two of the most successful mobile games in history — on its coin-op hardware.

Dream Arcades distributes games on its arcade cabinets, which can be refitted with different titles easily. Each Dream Arcade machine has 145 classic video games. But users can also buy them in packs. The company targets families, particularly those who are nostalgic for the bygone era.

The four-player Dreamcade 2.0 Cocktail is a tabletop machine with 145 titles, a 19-inch monitor, and a three-quarter-inch computer-routed Melamine cabinet. It sells for $1,999. The Cabaret Dreamcade 2.0 is a stand-up machine that has pinball flippers on the side, a 19-inch monitor, and 145 games. It sells for $1,899.
