Due to the fall of the arcades and the state of alarm for the coronavirus, this September we are going to have to say goodbye to another legendary SEGA arcade. Specifically, it will be the SEGA Ikebukuro GiGO
the one that will close its doors after being open since July 1993. In other words, after almost 30 years, we will have to say goodbye to another of the most mythical buildings of video games in the land of the rising sun.
In addition to the circumstances described above, the building will close its activities
because the building in which it is located will be renovated in the near future. This, thus, is already the second major arcade establishment that closes recently, after the closure of one of the arcades located in Akihabara
late last year. In this way, Tokyo is transforming itself, little by little, into a territory where the arcades have less and less presence. In the end, whether we like it or not, the changes end up coming.
What do you think? Did you ever visit the building? Do not hesitate to leave it in the comments!
