Namco is partnering with Hooters in Japan to open up an arcade

Haha ok

I’ve already professed my love for Japanese arcades, having visited some for the first time a few months back, but this is something else entirely. Namco Bandai is reportedly teaming up with Hooters to bring a “Gaming Barside-B” concept arcade to Japan.

It will open up on December 18 in Shibuya, and will feature “all you can eat and game” for 30 minutes, priced at 1,500 yen, with a 500 yen charge after that. For those who aren’t aware, that’s not a terrible price (1,500 yen is roughly $12 US, so a full hour would be roughly $16) — if the food is edible, of course.

I love how the promotional images feature ghost people. This image here is particularly hilarious, as half of the people involved look bored, outside of one girl with a trucker hat seemingly screaming at a mug of beer. Marketing!
