Arcade restaurants to become a thing

Thanks to hipsters, and actual grown-up geeks, the arcade game has been making a bit of a comeback.

While you've probably spotted them cropping up in your nearest "trendy" bar, they're set to make an even bigger splash in the near future.

Namco, the company behind iconic games like Pac-Man and Space Invaders, is planning to create a chain of arcade restaurants. The prototype establishment has the codename "Level 256" which uber-geeks will recognise as the last level of the original Pac-Man game.

David Bishop, vice president of Namco Entertainment Inc., told Polygon that they were planning an "upscale restaurant with "entertainment elements" and they have been working with "an established American restaurateur" to develop the concept.

Bad news for us though as it will probably start over in Chicago before trickling down through the rest of the US.

Would you be up for an arcade restaurant?
