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!
