The Largest Arcade in the World Launches Kickstarter to Expand

The Galloping Ghost Arcade in Brookfield, IL is the home of over 400 fully functioning arcade machines, making it the largest arcade in the world.

The arcade recently launched a Kickstarter campaign, looking to expand their location, add 300+ more arcade/pinball machines, add a PC/Console gaming area, and so much more.

New Fatal Frame Title Announced for Wii U

Fatal Frame has always been about pointing stuff around, so it’s no surprise that the franchise has found its home on Nintendo platforms since the launch of Wii and Nintendo 3DS, both of which use motion-controlled pointing options. The last game in the franchise, Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir, played like an AR game, leading some to speculate whether the next entry would use the Wii U GamePad, which coupled with the TV screen would make for a more surreal cursed camera experience.

Turns out that wasn’t just hot air. The next entry in the Fatal Frame series will indeed be a Wii U exclusive.

Xbox One Will Launch September 4 in Japan

Last year, prior to the Xbox One holiday launch period, Microsoft announced that their latest home console wouldn’t arrive in Japan during the first wave of launches – instead, we should expect it later on, in 2014. Given the relative unpopularity of the Xbox brand in Japan, the decision wasn’t terribly surprising.

However, 2014 has been around for awhile, and Microsoft has remained seemingly mum on the issue… until today. The company announced that Xbox One will be available in Japan from September 4. They also announced the names of registered developers for the platform’s Japan territory.

Media Create Sales: Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Debuts at Number Three in Japan

It has been another lackluster week for video game sales in Japan. A rather thin lineup of new games thus far this year combined with the rising prominence of phone and tablet gaming has led to mediocre sales numbers once again. Just five new games landed in the top twenty this week, with Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn charting the highest at number three. Hit the jump for the breakdown.
