Namco Bandai announced today that it plans to release a series of arcade machines based on the popular Pokemon franchise across Japan.
Hmm ...interesting. Do want. :P
I hope they venture west with it if it's successful in Japan. The arcades over this way could sure use some life, and as the first Pokemon arcade game I'm sure it'd attract some attention.
UK based arcades are generally pretty poor compared to our overseas counterparts - that said, introducing things like this would certainly be a step in the right direction. The industry needs a helping hand - placing these in the sea resorts or theme parks could have some potential.
