If you live in the San Francisco area and you’re looking for an arcade there, then you’re in luck with the new South Town Arcade. According to their website, they describe the new business as “… a lifestyle/apparel company inspired by Arcade Video Game culture, independent skateboarding apparel of the 1990’s and modern streetwear. We firmly believe that there is a place for Arcade Video Games and Street Culture in the modern era, and that place is Southtown.” Their current line-up of arcade titles includes the likes of Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, Street Fighter II & III (Hyper Fighting and Third Strike respectively), Tetris The Grand Master 3: Terror Instinct, Magical Drop 3, Metal Slug, Ikaruga and more. A full game list can be found here.

You can also visit their website here @ and we wish them the best of luck in their business. I know they already had to overcome the hurdle of being accepted by the city, hopefully that is

    Great to see Magical Drop 3 there.

    Awesome game that I only discovered when it was one of the carts that came with my Neo Geo cabinet. Great stuff.

    may have to go and check out the Magical Drop 3 competition – its been a bit… Also tetris the grandmaster is there, though i probably won’t be able to survive any real comp it would be great to see some in person.

    one complaint is that you have to dig for the address??? just put it on the front page as a sticky!

    Very cool selection! What I wouldn’t give to have a place like this within a reasonable distance from me. This is the kind of place the industry needs more of.
