Retro gamers take note, the real bargains and steals in our hobby are not on eBay or car boot sales, but in... property? As of recent one gamer's relative invested in a Japanese building, only to uncover a time capsule of arcade gaming. Once inside, the new owners were shocked to find two floors of decade long neglected arcade machines.
This incredible discovery has been made in the Japanese city of Chiba, just a short drive from Tokyo. Arcade Otaku forum poster keisuke999 recently uncovered the details of this amazing find, along with a detailed inventory of the building's contents in pictures.
Amongst the selection was just short of fifty Sega Aero and Astro City cabinets, along with a handful of Namco machines too. Within these cabinets were also original arcade game boards including the likes of Street Fighter 2 Champion Edition, Metal Slug X, Donkey Kong, Pengo, Magical Tetris Challenge, Galaxian, Raiden 2 and even Columns.
Needless to say there was more than enough on offer here to re-open the arcade, however, keisuke999 has decided to sell off the machines to eager eyed gamers around the world. If you were hoping to finally own a candy cab yourself, this might just be the best chance you'll ever get to secure one.
What would you do if you can across a similar collection of unused video game relics?
