Phoenix is a fixed shooter arcade game released in December 1980. Developed in Japan by either Hiraoka or TPN, the game was released in Japan by Taito in December 1980. It was then released in Europe, and then in the Americas by Centuri and Amstar Electronics in January 1981.
The Phoenix mothership is one of the first video arcade game bosses to be presented as a separate challenge. It was a critical and commercial success, becoming one of Centuri's most successful titles.

Phoenix was produced by "a smaller Japanese developer" according to Centuri's Joel Hochberg (who later worked for Rare). In Japan, a company called TPN licensed the game to Taito. Another company based in Japan, Hiraoka, licensed the game to Amstar Electronics, based in Phoenix, Arizona. Taito released the game for Japan in December 1980, and then it was released in Europe. Centuri acquired the American arcade license to the game from both Hiraoka and Amstar Electronics, and then Centuri released it for the Americas in January 1981. In North America, Centuri manufactured the upright arcade cabinet while Amstar Electronics manufactured the cocktail arcade cabinet. Atari later released a port of Phoenix for the Atari 2600 in 1982.

The images shown belong to the real product which is brand new in mint condition and still sealed in the original manufacturer packaging after all these years.
