New arcade pops up in San Francisco

4:00 PM on 05.01.2011

Attention San Francisco folks! There's a new arcade in town and it's the last refuge for you fighting fans within the city. Southtown Arcade just opened up shop and is a simple little spot with just over a dozen arcade cabinets. All the cabinets are of the Japanese-style sit down variety and each cost just twenty-five cents to operate.

The newest cabinet the shop currently has is The King of Fighters XIII while the rest are made up of something every fighter will enjoy. BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike, Vampire Savoir, SNK vs Capcom SVC Chaos, The King of Fighters '98, Guilty Gear XX: Accent Core and of course, Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting are part of the current lineup. There's also some Magical Drop 3, Windjammers and Metal Slug if you're looking for a little variety.

Southtown Arcade is looking to bring in more arcade units and they may look into more non-fighting units. It's just dependent on what you the local fans want to see. The business is very small and does need your support so hop in a play a few matches. 

Southtown Arcade is located at 447 Stockton Street (right by the tunnel entrance) and are open Monday, Thursday, Friday from 3PM-9PM, Saturday from 12PM-9PM and Sundays from 12PM-7PM. Follow them on Twitter for new announcements.
