A new arcade will be launching in the city centre next week.

Bandai Namco, the company responsible for some of the world’s biggest games including Tekken, Pac-Man and Dragon Ball Z, is opening an arcade in North Street, Brighton, on December 12.

It will be one of four locations outside of Japan giving UK gamers the chance to try out some of the most popular arcade games and pick up exciting character merchandise.

A statement on the brand’s website reads: “The positive appearance of stores in the UK have strengthened the love of Bandai Namco’s popular brands in the physical space.
