Welcome, New Arcade!

You only ever seem to hear about arcades closing these days, so let's break that depressing trend and welcome the opening of a big new arcade instead.

Pinball Wizard Arcade is located in Pelham, New Hampshire, and will be throwing its doors open on January 12. Not only does it have a great name, but it sounds like it has a great collection, as it'll have over 200 arcade games and, perhaps more awesomely, over 70 pinball machines.

The arcade games are, as you'd expect, heavy on fighting games, with the roster including titles like:

X-Men Children of the Atom, Marvel Superheroes, Marvel vs. Capcom, Marvel Vs. Streetfighter, X-Men Vs. Streetfighter. SNK Vs. Capcom, SNK Vs. Capcom 2, Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat II, Mortal Kombat III Ultimate, Mortal Kombat 4, Street Fighter II, Street Fighter II Championship Edition, StreetFighter Alpha, StreetFighter Alpha 2, StreetFighter Alpha 3, Tekken 2, Soul Edge.

Some of the pinball games available include:

Roller Coaster Tycoon, Cirqus Voltiare, Bonzai Run, Family Guy, Addams Family, Twilight Zone, Black Hole, Eight Ball Deluxe, Black Knight, Whirlwind and Party Zone.

Best of luck, Pinball Wizard!
