GAME CENTER CHRONICLES: HALF A CENTURY OF ARCADE GAMES AS SEEN BY THE OWNER OF MIKADO

Minoru Ikeda ( 池田 稔)



 

Gasen Mikado is known both in Japan and abroad as a "gamer's haven". While smaller arcades are becoming more and more scarce, Mikado continues to be loved for its diverse lineup of games. Its manager, Minoru Ikeda, shares the realities of running this place while reflecting on his favourite masterpieces of yesteryear.


This book depicts this history and the future of the arcade business - from the advent of shmups like Xevious and Gradius, to the rise (and fall) of Fighting games like Street Fighter and Virtua Fighter.
