While arcades are generally known as fixed locations, in recent times that hasn’t always been the case with new mobile arcade gamerooms. Take a truck trailer, cram it with arcades and rent it out for parties. While the game selection is often limited because of space (which also shows why it’s still good to have compact cabinets for sale), it’s still a great way to bring some arcade gaming goodness into arcades where such a location might not be feasible. The latest company to do this is The Rockin Roller Mobile Arcade LLC, based in New Jersey, USA and covering NJ, PA and DE. As the website says, they have a “34-foot mobile arcade offers 70 classic games on over 10 real, full-size arcade games.”
You can see more pictures and info about it at the company website.
Speaking of a moving event, The Stinger Report also provided us with a link where Capcom is running a “Fight Club UK” where players will be able to play the latest console Capcom games which used to enjoy being arcade games, at various different locations. Apparently they think that this model of bringing the games to various pubs is less of a hazard than arcades themselves. [Capcom Europe]
