The popular UK video game exhibition GAME ON is now playing at the Miraikan Odaiba in Tokyo, and we headed over last weekend to see if our princess is in another castle! If you love video games, you’re going to have a good time.
Designed to be both educational and entertaining, visitors will walk through 8 “stages” that take you on a journey to the past, present and future of video games. We got to try out a handful of really cool classic arcade games like Pacman and Space Invader in their original cabinets, as well as some really rare and interesting ones that we’ve never seen before.
Along the way we also got to relive some good memories with old favorites like the original Street Fighter and Parappa. One of the highlights of the exhibition is the chance to try on the Playstation VR headset before it’s released mid this year.
Check out the store at the end of the exhibition for some cute retro gaming merch like this super cute Sega Mega Drive plushie!
Tickets cost 1,500 Yen for adults and 500 Yen for children. If you have kids, this is a really fun place for a day out with the family. Once you’re done with the exhibition, there’s plenty of food and shopping to look forward to around the area too.
“Only a limited number of special (free) tickets for the Playstation VR exhibit are available each day, so if you want to try it out, be sure to get there early at around 9.30am to get in line.”
