Those who visit the barcade can choose from its large menu consisting of alcoholic to non-alcoholic drinks and food, such as French fries, takoyaki octopus dumpling, pastas and more. They also offer collaboration drinks, which comes with a non-alcoholic option.
What sets them apart from the other bars with similar concept, though, is the licensed games they offer to their patrons. The bar managed to acquire permission from many iconic video game developers, such as Sega, Arc System Works, SNK, City Connection, G-Mode, Paon DP and Dotemu SAS for their games, Kotaku reported.
Exclusive glassware featuring logos from game developers are also being sold in the bar for 1,800 yen ($17), Geek Culture reported.
The staff at the barcade might also play with the customers in case they want to challenge a real human being and not a computer. The bar also offers a free drink for those who set the highest scores in “Space Invaders.”
Tokyo Video Gamers is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
