It's an immersive VR experience that takes 30 minutes to complete. I would highly recommend it to people since it forces you to (slowly) walk around the playing field.

There are quite a few of these sega places around Akihabara - including Taito station - and they are definitely worth a visit. I must have wasted so much money on the 'UFO Catchers' (claw machines) trying to catch silly little teddy bears haha (be...More

There a few of these sega zones which have whole floors dedicated to tekken, final fantasy etc. The UFO catchers are tricky but if you watch the locals you will learn to go for the corners of the prize boxes and rotate them around until...More
