This month in Tokyo’s Shibuya, Namco is bringing its gaming know-how to a new gaming establishment with Hooters.

It’s called “Gaming Barside-B,” and according to Famitsu, this is an “interactive sports bar” that was designed in New York’s image. The establishment appears to have a couple kinds of cabinets, such as Namco’s Star Wars arcade game.

There are slot car racing circuits, table soccer, carnival-style free-throw games and more.


Famitsu adds that besides eating, drinking, and gaming, you can enjoy talking to Hooters’ girls. M’kay.

Gaming Barside-B opens on December 18. It’s all you can eat and all you can game for 30 minutes for 1,500 yen. After that, every 30 minutes is another 500 yen.
