A month after the iconic Tokyo Sega Arcade closes, another arcade will open across the street.

The unique challenges and recession of 2020 turned out to be a very difficult time for arcade and “face-to-face” businesses. In Tokyo, which is loved by its iconic game site, Sega closed Akihabara’s second arcade in 2020. After that, Sega Ikebukuro Gigo confirmed that it would be closed in September because the lease contract for the building was terminated. It was given an emotional farewell by its supporters.

With some positive changes after the disappointing news, Sega confirmed that the new arcade center will open on October 22nd, directly across the street (Hattip). @ausretrogamer).

As you can see on the sign, there are arcade games, lots of “crane games” and cafes. Hopefully it will feel like an arcade that has been closed in the last few years.

So if you’re an arcade fan who wants to go to Tokyo in the future, this certainly looks like a place to put your itinerary.
