How do they get arcade games out of skyscrapers? Cranes

Haha, of course!

I probably never would have thought of this on my own, but those arcade games have to move somehow, right?

Over in Japan, someone snapped a few pictures for Twitter of a Club Sega location, showing exactly how they get some of the bigger arcade game cabinets in and out of the building. The answer? A giant crane picks them up and plops them where they need to go.

It’s probably common sense to a lot of people out there but I still felt like sharing it, because the fact that arcades still exist over the world warms my heart. Especially in Japan, they’re treasure troves of history, and seeing them in headlines makes me happy.
