You never know quite what you’re getting into when you buy a piece of real estate, but finding two floors worth of classic 1990’s arcade games in your new building is likely a big surprise. This is exactly what happened to an older woman who bought a building in Japan’s Chiba prefecture and it’s like walking through a portal into the past.
There are over 55 working games including Donkey Kong, Tetris, and three versions of Street Fighter. It was all photographed by her granddaughter’s boyfriend who is planning to ship a whole bunch of it to the US and is taking orders for those interested in owning the games. He explains in a forum post:
The Game Center closed down in the mid 90s, but for some reason there are a few newer machines (as in late 90s) I don’t know the whole story either.
