(Thanks to reader kieranmay for the tip)

Namco is well know for operating hundreds of arcade across the globe and now they have added one more place to their list – the Namco Funscape in Gateshead UK. As you can see from the video below, their selection of arcade games is very solid, featuring several new releases including four MaxiTune 3 cabs, 2 Guitar Hero cabs, 2 Nirin cabs, a deluxe Rambo, two Need For Speed Carbon cabs, and more. They also offer entertainment for people of all ages, spanning from a soft play area for kids to a bar and pool hall for adults. It looks like an impressive facility and we wish them the best of luck in their business!

I’ve heard that on the net (if this is correct) that a namco station will open up in liverpool one shopping centre in liverpool UK. here is the link although I’m having trouble viewing it for some reason
