Namco Bandai’s Zippo lighters may not hold a candle to similar — OK, far superior — recent combustible offerings from Sega, but if you’re a huge Xevious fan, Banpresto has a lighter for you, buddy.
Four Zippos themed on classic Namco properties Pac-Man, Dig Dug, Xevious and Galaxian are yours for pre-ordering and importing should you have the desire and funds to complete the transaction. I say that because, like the Sega Saturn and Mega Drive Zippos, these aren’t cheap. Each is ¥10,000, equating to a $US108.90 price at importer National Console Support.
But if you think you’ll be needing a Zippo in January, these might be exactly what you’re looking for.
