Polygon has learned of the existence of a restaurant/gaming fusion project that may interest those of you in the US. The project, initially titled "Level 256" (the final levels of Pac-Man and Dig Dug), will deliver high-end food and entertainment in one location.

According to Namco, a prototype, possibly starting in Chicago, could lead to a full-on chain, and it will involve gaming at the location including but not limited to: pool, shuffleboard, video games, or "new immersive attractions." 

David Bishop, CEO of Namco Entertainment Inc., says that this is a no brainer: "It's no secret that we've been exploring a number of new business models and noodling the future of Out-of-Home entertainment for several years now, and our current planning does include an 'upscale' restaurant with 'entertainment elements.'"

Essentially, it sounds like Namco's version of Dave & Busters. Don't get too excited about the food in this header though, as that has nothing to do with this project!

Mega Man will be appearing at the Hanayashiki theme park in Japan

Every so often Capcom decides that it's time to parade Mega Man around, reminding us that they used to pump out a ton of good games for him while they sit back and collect royalties. The next really cool not-Mega Man game eve...more
