Next April, an esports-themed hotel will open in Osaka’s geek district Nipponbashi. Called Esports Hotel E-Zone Cyberspace in English, it is the first of its kind in Japan.
Including the basement’s shower area, the hotel is nine stories. Fashion Snap reports that floors one to three are the gaming floors, with over 70 high-spec, streaming-ready gaming PCs.
The fourth to eighth floors are the sleeping cabins, so it sounds like this will be no-frills lodging. However, there are special digs on the seventh floor with in-room gaming PCs.
The hotel is aimed at those who are new to esports as well as at old hands. No word yet on per-night rates.
